If a horse is your only mode of transport and you have
been bitten by a few,
does that mean you will avoid all horses
and walk for the rest of your life,
Or will you approach all horses using different ideas
Until you find the way that works
and then find the horse that suits you,
When you have the choice and not
necessarily accept the first one that allows you to ride it.

Yarra Valley

Parterre Garden at Aolwyn

Aolwyn Gardens

Gulf Station

I spent yesterday out int the Yarra Valley, on my own of course as all my freinds where busy with ther partners and kids. Started off with a look at Chateau Yering winery, had a look a photography exhibition they had called The Kids Are All right, which featured Australian bands and singers from the 1970's and 80's. Even had a picture of Bon Scott and aungus Young at Altona Tech School.

After Chateau Yerring I stopped off at historic Gulf station, The house is very small by today standards. They had there own butcher and dairy amongst other things. I took a few photos there although inside your not allowed to take flash photos as the walls are very fragile and made of hession and paper.

After this I went to a property that was open for the Australian open garden scheme called Aolwyn. Huge expase of gardens with several different themed gardens including a parterre garden, considering the drought there was lots of flowers and green due i think to bore water and rainwater.

Stopped at Yarrawood winery at had a late lunch at 3pm and tasted some wines. Lunch was a very nice Olive and parmesan fingers with a glass of their 2002 tall tales chardoonay. After this i headed back to town to go to fitzroy to the rainbow hotel to listen to a band, caught up with a new internet guy called Chris and had a great laugh with him, espeically about his 2- 1 drinks to toilet ratio which he claims was due to his drinking light beer but I have told hime next time we catch up he can drink heavy beer just to prove his theory.
