Fields Of Gold

Saturday 8th September, 2012

Last night we decided to go to Hahndorf and to the Pizza House for dinner.  They have just won "Best Pizza Outlet" for 2012.  Here, you won't find the run of the mill Ham and Pineapple, or pizzas like you get at Domino's or Pizza Hut.  

Tony ordered the "Special" with cacciatore sausage, semi-dried tomatoes, roasted capsicum, fetta cheese and I had the Pollo Fungi, roasted chicken breast, mushrooms and gorgonzola.  Yum! Yum! they were delicious!  

They do mainly gourmet pizzas, like duck, crab meat, squid and yes, Robyn they have dessert pizzas too, but only two.  One is a Cherry Ripe and the other one I can't remember but I think it may be apple and cinnamon with cream and icecream.  We will try one next time.

Tony and I decided to take a drive into the country today and see the "Fields of Gold".  What a truly beautiful sight!  Just a few months ago when we were there all the paddocks were either just showing signs of crops peeking through or else had just been sown.  

Today the canola fields were full of yellow flowers and the green of the grain crops really brought out the true colours of and gold.  There were also lots of little lambs frisking about in the paddocks.  Spring truly is the season of new beginnings.

We stopped at the Grasshopper Roadhouse in Tarlee for coffee and scones.  The Roadhouse is a quaint little cottage.

I knew it was a bad decision to go to the country.  This evening my eyes are so itchy, watery and my nose is running.  Yep.....hayfever!

Just before we left Jodi and Taylor called around.  As we were about to go out, they didn't stay for too long. Jodi said that Tori has found a unit, and so I can go through my cupboards in the coming days and see if there is anything that will be suitable for her.

Whenever I have a clean out I donate it all to charity so I don't have too much that I don't use anymore, but there may be some thing that she might be able to use.  I know I have a canteen of cutlery that she can have.

As Jodi was leaving Katie rang to let us know what time she will be leaving for Perth. She sounded very excited and so we will be heading to the airport tomorrow.

  1. I love your photos of the fields of gold and all the sheep. I don't get to see too many sheep where I am. So glad that all you got from the wind and storm was rubble. It's good no one was hurt. We've been getting spurts of rain and wind, but nothing too severe. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
