I was the first up. I ended up drying myself post shower with a hand towel because I couldn’t find the actual towels and was sneaking around trying not to wake people up (I did end up finding the towels when I was 99% dry… they were in a cupboard under the sink, good stuff). Naturally breakfast was top priority. We all ordered the same thing, 2 with salmon and 2 with mushrooms.
We don’t have Ladies in the Snow in Melbourne. They were delicious. Although, as we crunched while walking a fairly gruff man at the next stand told us to throw our apples away and taste his. Yes, we appreciated his passion for apples, however the delivery could have used some work.
With market time done, what to do? Drive up Mount Wellington and nearly run out of petrol, there was talk of knocking it into neutral and cruising back down the mountain, not kidding…
Back on the road we found ourselves at Puddleduck winery, a family owned and run winery on the way to Richmond. We were so very glad we stopped.
What to do after an afternoon of wine tasting and chit chat? Dinner, of course. But that’s a post all it’s own. That good.
