Choosing between the Crows and the Power?

IMG_1389Aspiring Barossa/Gawler rookie recruit Wayne Elson, has purchased merchandise of both SA premier teams, so as to give himself an each way opportunity to play at the AFL elite level in 2015.  Faced with choosing between Crows and The Power… “Just show me the money” he said.

Seen here wearing both of the team’s T shirts, his family and friends are worried about his motives and that his fitness might not be what it was when he was playing club footy. IMG_1385

“I’m not giving to the selectors a bottle of 1959 Grange or anything like that” he said. “But I would be prepared to lobby with a bottle of Roenfeldt Hill Gold Medal ZSGM as an incentive” said the Barossa vigneron and host of Be consumed. tours.

Adelaide – clean and green appeal for tourists

adelaide clean and green

We really don’t realize how good we have it, here in SA. My tour guests from Asia, and interestingly, those from Sydney, often comment about how beautiful our city is. Put simply, Adelaide has much clean and green appeal for tourists. It’s old colonial and Victorian structures, then our many homes with detailed quoin work bring oohs and aaahs…  “I would love to own that” .  Our wonderful parks and gardens,Adelaide_Convention_Centre_at_night our vineyards and nearby wine regions, all amaze, with many saying they would love to live here.

the sweet aroma of roses in Adelaide

People from Hong Kong for example, spend much of their tour day  taking photos in our gardens, with many unable to even grow pot plants in their home city apartments,  due to a lack of sunlight. And many want to stop to experience the wonderful roses and wild flowers.

We definitely take for granted what we are able to enjoy every day!

Hens party minibus – video of hens day singalong

Click Deanna’s hens singalong video


Deanna’s hens party minibus day in McLaren Vale became a talent show audition when the tour operator suggested they have a singalong.  It was a hens party minibus day gone wild! A music CD specially created for the day was turned up loud – and the local district was treated to the dulcet tones  of 14 women not singing “the wheels of the bus go round and round”.  Instead it was Pumped up kicks, ‘Happy’ from Pharrell Williams, hits from Queen and ‘My Girl’ by the Temptations.

A great day enjoyed by all, especially the tour host/driver! At
