A Brit in Australia

Well we have been in Oz now for 11 days, took 2 days to get properly over the jet lag,and it was not too bad. When we first arrived the temperature was in the high 30s for several days, but it has cooled of a bit and there has been some much needed rain, all the family are well and its great to see them all including our new grand daughter, we have just spent a week at Lake Eildon, but did not see much of the lake as it is only at 17% of its capacity, the bird life is fantastic with many different types of parrots around. The Kookaburras are so friendly and inquisative that you can get really close to them. More news soon....

Bodega Vallone

We now have a new bodega, called the Bodega Vallone it has opened where the bike and quad bike hire used to be, on the supermarket road into Rojales with bottled wine and several types of wine available from the cask, there is also a small bar selling draught beer and serving tapas of jamon, cheese and other tasty treats. A litre of red wine from the cask into your own bottle is €1.10, and is excellent.
