The Story Continues

Story Telling

Hans Christian Anderson Memorial Reading Seat

Once upon a time an English man and a Scottish woman travelled to a far off land called Australia to see what this Great Land had to offer. They had heard stories of the Great Sandy Desert, the Great Dividing Range, the Great Barrier Reef and even the Great Ocean Road but nobody had shared the secret of the Grape Wine-Ding Valley!

Why not they wondered, it seemed such a magical place?

It had a Chapel at the top of a Hill and a communion table like nothing they had ever seen before.

Here's the Chapel

Here’s the Chapel, where’s the Steeple?

Open the door and .....

Open the door but where are the people?

Everyone talked the same language about Cellar Doors that had funny names and even funnier staff like Tristan. He loved his job as he got to play his favourite music like Led Zeppelin and drink wine all day with his customers.

The English man and the Scottish woman were given honorary membership of the Black Sheep Club although the woman was sure she’d been a member of this club before when growing up! They were pleased there were no horses heads in evidence at Coriole’s Vineyard where the 2007 Sangiovese scored top marks. Liverpool won hands down at Goodieson Brewery but unfortunately the tourists lost the Battle at Bosworth.

Psst ….. pass it on

Once you’ve tired of The Grape Wine-Ding Valley, you can leg it down to Glenelg where you can almost imagine you are back in Manly.

Turn left, instead of right, and you’ll be hopping over to KI which coincidentally happens to be the title of the next Chapter! Till then, keep smiling and we’ll keep pootling.

      Me drunk – absolutely not. Thought another straight forward blog about yet more wine tasting might be a little too repetitive so diversified a little this time in my story telling style xx

    Why does everyone seem to think that was a drunk rendition? All of it was true – maybe stretched it a little with the Goodieson Reference (that’s Everton’s home ground and was a get at Mike’s brother Ged) – everything else was factually correct! As for the happy ever ending – we’ll have to wait and see lol xxx

    I think this is a better story of events.

    Once upon a time a couple of old soaks travelled to a far off land called Australia to see if they could drink themselves around this Great Land.
    They had heard stories of the Great Sandy Desert, the Great Dividing Range, the Great Barrier Reef and even the Great Ocean Road but nobody had shared the secret of the Grape Wine-Ding Valley, which will never be the same….
    Everyone even talked the same language ‘Cheers & Bears’ some had funny names like Mike & Sheila and even funnier staff like Tristan. He loved his job as he got to play his favourite music like Led Zeppelin and drink wine all day with his customers, well it would be rude to let Tristan drink alone!.says Sheila…
    The old soaks were given honorary membership of the Black Sheep Club (aptly named) although Sheila was sure she’d been a member of this club before when growing up!
    They were pleased there were no horses heads in evidence at Coriole’s Vineyard where the 2007 Sangiovese scored top marks. Everton beat Liverpool hands down at Goodieson Brewery as they always do but unfortunately the tourists lost the Battle at Bosworth.
    Tristan was pleased to see the tourist but had been drunk dry and was now waiting for the next grapes to grow.
    He had never seen so much drink consumed in such a short period of time, he was amazed they were both standing and when he heard the lady say, can’t you get a drink in this place he collapsed.
    So off went the old soaks, pootling off to find their next watering hole.

    Keep Pootlinggggggggg
