Wine a very different area code!

 DD and I had to do some Australian wine we enlisted a sober driver ( Craig) and found another companion...and went on our way! Mt Tamborine has a very convenient little loop of wineries, a brewery, and a vodka distillery...we got a lot of research done!

SO..upon our journey to Mt. Tamborine, we discovered a Hawaiian doll in my boss's car. She had lent us her car for this journey, and we soon found out that Craig would have a sober companion on this trip!!! We named him Jerome.
Craig and Jerome settling in while the girls get started at the winery!

at the 2nd winery...this one had cheese and oil tasting as well as wine! Honestly, I think the three of us would've been satisfied if we had just tasted the cheese and oil...we didn't buy any wine, but definitely got some wasabi oil!
doing some tasting...notice Craig and Jerome getting comfy in the chair behind us....we were lucky to have such a great driver!

this was Jerome and DD at the to the CHEESE factory!!
Mt. Tamborine has incredible views like this one...

Craig letting Jerome have a little fun.....

The crew!! All FOUR of us :)

Awesome time spent with DD on her trip here! It makes so much of a difference having had visitors come out here to see and experience everything that I experienced. I don't think it's any coincidence that some of my best moments spent in Australia were spent with the awesome people that used the $$ and energy to come out to Oz! Thank you DD for making the journey out here, see you soon!

Ok so obviously I'm a bit behind on my blogging. I commend my sister, Katie, for being able to keep everyone updated with her blogging of Forrest and the fam. Me, being half way across the world, really do appreciate seeing the growing pictures of both Forrest, and Katie's belly! I'll try my best to update in the next couple of days! Only because my plane leaves back to Cali in about two days.....very bittersweet :).
