Snowtown SA

The Memorial Hall
We had a nice time yesterday visiting a cousin Phyllis and her daughter Gayle in Snowtown.  Cousin Jenny also popped over for a quick cuppa. 
Part of the shopping precint
They were originally going down to Adelaide early but changed their arrangements so that we could catch up and they left in the afternoon.  We had a nice lunch at the local cafe and a walk around the quiet streets. 

 I have mentioned in earlier postings that my father was born in this area, he moved interstate to WA when he was a young man.  He met my mother and the rest as you say is history, as far as I am aware he never returned to S.A.
The "notorious" Bank
  We drove back to Clare via Brinkwater and Blythe and it was a pleasant half hour drive. 
The View at the Spring Gully Lookout
We went out to the Spring Gully Lookout this morning and we were visited later by a mutual acquaintance of a friend of ours; the three men served in the Australian Navy many moons ago.  They chewed the fat about the good old navy days and had fun reminiscing.  This afternoon we drove over to Mintaro, Auburn, Manoora and visited one of the oldest wineries in the state but I will post about that later.  Tomoorow we will leave this lovely spot and make our way down to Adelaide, spending tomorrow night out on the road.
