Glorious Glorious weather – 16 degrees, barely a cloud and almost t-shirt material and gumboots almost not required. Diesel welcomed back Maggie, Lily and Monty who were very excited to be out and about on this wonderful Sunday. There was lots of excitement at Port Melbourne for our dog friendly sniff and greet with Sancia, Stanley and Mindy joining in the fun.
With Bella the Bus in fine form, it was off to Lilydale Lake under the guidance of Sharon and Andrea to meet Kira, Nick and Melissa. Kerry and Diesel were having a lazy day just being guests.
Yarra Farm Fresh spoilt us for choice of their amazing local produce tastings and sensational scenery. It was a perfect place to say Happy Birthday to Caroline, Michael and Monty. We could have lounged around nibbling on great food for hours.
Rochford Winery our lunch venue was buzzing with excitement under all this sunshine. Jack and Andrea nestled the pooches into their afternoon nap and they happily snacked away on duck jerky while the hoomans enjoyed a private wine tasting and 2 course lunch.
The afternoon wine tasting was a leisurely 700m stroll from Rochfords to Badgers Brook and gentle we took the pace.
Mary and Angeline greeted us at Badgers Brook with a wonderful smile and gorgeous wines to taste on the lawn and it was again a tough decision to move.
The Ella + Friends Photo of the day went to Barrel Girl- Sancia, but it was a very tough decision with the judging panel in deep discussion for a long time.
Thank you to everyone who joined us it was a wonderful to kick off our Winter Gumboots Tours with such a great group of pooches and hoomans.
