Winton Road has variety, I will post some images of the different activities going on here starting with the vineyard on the corner. After a slow start Spring is well underway.
Don’t get down to this part of the block too often myself.
Ride to the Show
On my visit to Mt Pleasant the other day I found an old stone well just off the main road in town.
I stopped to take a picture in the pale winter light. Winter light is good for photographs as there a no strong shadows.
Found this little cottage in Mt Pleasant today. Loved the way it sat so near the road. Totally original.
Just when it’s the wettest and coldest we have the Black Wattles.
The sun came out long enough for this photo:
Hi, I have been wanting to do something on the honesty box for some time, it’s a small diversion on my way to the farm and I need an excuse to go that way. I had a good reason yesterday, the light was good! It’s winter now and the lack of shadow makes for good photography.
Kersbrook is only a few kilometres from Barrenjoey Hideaway in the direction of Gawler, the view of the country as you descend from Checker Hill road like a cessna coming in to land.
So here, in this rich landscape, is a tin shed. The honesty box is, well, box-like and well stocked.
There is a good surfing beach an hour or so from Barrenjoey. We went down today. The drive will take you past Hahndorf through to Mt Barker and then to Strathalbyn.
Middleton Beach is one of the best beaches to learn to surf, anywhere. This is because the fine sand packs down hard and flat to create a safe beginners environment.
A few kilometres either side of Middleton is Port Elliot and Goolwa. Both worth a visit.
I want to say something about this cellar door as it is handy to Barrenjoey Hideaway and, though close, is an exciting drive over Checker Hill Road. I say over as it is high. Cyclists love it for that reason. A great view of the area to be had from ‘up there’.
Acoustic Music events are held here on occasion, their website can be found here Kersbrookhill Winery
The winery is also near a great ‘honesty box’ friut and veggie stall on which I will do a separate post.
