The Decemberists Day 7

Posted: December 9, 2017 in Travel

If Old Whiskers can rest on the 7th day surely I can too ? It’s been a full week indeed and not quite over yet . A quick debrief at Mitch and Cazz’s place mid morning with promise of a BBQ and threat of more alcohol. It’s a coolish day again so think we can walk the 25 mins to get there as not quite convinced I should be driving just yet . Back early afternoon for a Spa and a nap and hope the two don’t cross over in that dangerous way that can happen . Then a family BBQ on site here at hotel for dinner before falling into bed and then early start back to airport tomorrow for flight home. That’s the plan folks. Stay tuned

Pleasant walk and even met a few locals. Solid people but not very talkative. A couple of Peronis and a sausage sizzle was molto bene. That’s Itie for more grog. Last chance to talk to some people for a while and round out a great 24 hrs. Of course the usual hanger oners will still be around tonight

A rest bordering on a nap filled in the first hour home and then a Spa did most of the rest . Time for one more protein injection washed down with the red stuff then. My brother Freddo passed on some very useful info yesterday while pillaging at local Dan Murphy’s which will now pass on to the masses. He knows his wine this lad and so was interesting to see him pick up on the old DM trick of having an older vintage on shelf rather than the good stuff. Now you and me may think that a 2014 Shiraz must be better value than the 2015 of same grape. Nope , not the case always if often. Especially when storage as in DM could be in question for that longer period . Remember younguns I inform as I enthrall

We are checked in online for flight home now so just have to get the car back in one piece in the general location of the plane take off place . But first I have to traverse the twenty paces from room to BBQ area while carrying two bottles of St Hubert Cab Merlot and three Ritz crackers. I say always be prepared because you never know when you will come across cheese. Many don’t know this but the first draft of The Newcastle Song was “ Dont you ever let a cheese go by “

Lovely night with family again with plenty of food and wine to boot .It will be sad to leave them all but the memories – and photos – last

After 8:30 pm which means it’s bedtime. Of course in Victoria it also means it’s bloody daylight still!

Over and out Dudes and Dudettes. James Bond will return in Ireland Fling February 2018
