The first full day we drove up into the Adelaide Hills and visited Hahndorf which is an old german settlement. It's full of german flavour with restaurants, cafes, galleries and plenty of things to see and do. We meandered down the main street and hubby bless his soul, visited every single clothing, craft and candle shop that I wished to visit, without a word of complaint.
We then visited the Hahndorf Inn where we chowed down on big bowls of homemade chicken and vegetable soup. Awesome food. This is one of the most attractive and comfortable pubs I've ever visited. Good food and great service.
I don't eat chocolate and I don't drink wine and of course roses make me sneeze - I'm probably not the easiest person to romance. Hubby looks after me all right though - bubble baths, scented candles and vodka have just as great an effect.
Today we went to Goolwa and went on a four hour cruise down the Murray River to where it joins the sea. We had lunch and afternoon tea on board and walked over the sand dunes and down to the beach. Despite it being cold, there was no wind and the sun was shining. A perfectly spectacular finish to our time away.

Proves they don't need me to organise them, wake them up, cook for them, nag them.
Well tonight the house is still standing, it's clean even, the animals have all been fed (well they're alive and happy - so you assume they've been fed), the rubbish bins went out, dishes are all done. Job well done guys. I think we should go away more often.
So there you go, just what was needed and as an added bonus it's another item off my challenges list.
