Girls Day Out McLaren Vale???
Time has healed the many wounds of last year and the stresses caused by last minute drop outs.
So, I was thinking anyone fancy a trip to McLaren Vale wineries? I thought sometime after the school holidays are over (those of us who are mums will need something to help us recover).
Dates I thought of VERY provisionally are 2nd or 16th May. I am busy on the 9th May thanks to a fabbie friend of mine doing something fabbie on that day!!!
No specific details but pick up from Woodcroft shopping centre, lunch most likely at Woodstock winery - coz it's gorgeous there - with about 5 wineries or so. Price approx $70. If you're interested or have a suggestion, let me know...
i saw this today and couldn't believe how funny it could be. camel and tipsy on wine.
camel winery tours
6hrs touring around the Mclaren vale winery's on a camel.....how cool!!
You've clearly never seen me at the end of winery 2! I can fall off a chair seat, never mind a camel. I'm open if this is popular. The price of the camel option is $90.00 and involves travelling on a camel round McLaren Vale. It costs $90 and says lunch is included although does not specify where or if buying bottles is catered for. I can't work out if we are expected to drive down to McLaren Vale so we can ride on camels or if we are picked up.
I don't mind organising it but a camel trip is not really my cup of tea.
ooo hold that thought...il ask at work if i get get any discounts...
the owners are very cosy with the winery owners...
and im definately up for it - had a ball last year.
we certainly wouldnt fit the amount of wine we all bought on the back of a camel thats for sure!!! i recall us having more weight in wine than people at the end of last years trip
Oh yeah!! And the fact we dropped in on the last winery with 5 mins notice LOL
Thanks for the enquiries Kat, much appreciated
I don't think that poor young lad who served us has ever recovered properly!

I would love to come if that's ok - (I know I'm not even there yet!) - but James doesn't start work until June 1st so will make use of his free time while I can! :D
When would paymnet need to be made as don't get there until April 24th .. but could try and sort something out if not.......
Check if the camel tours are still operating as I called them a couple of months ago and they said they weren't doing them anymore.
Payment will be required in full before the day AND in time for me to cancel the trip if there are not enough people to make it viable. If we go on the 16th, then May 1st would be fine. We'll decide the details once we've found out if numbers mean this trip can go ahead.
