Chocolate was next on their list of wants so we drove the beautiful drive over to the Chocolaterie for some choccie tastings and as the sun was shining, we couldn’t resist having one of their sensational ice-creams – but this time it was Joan who disgraced herself, dropping hers all over the table and subsequently up her arms – very sticky. Not what you expect from a tour guide! Honestly!
Then, to finish off their super day, they enjoyed walking around the beautiful Alowyn Gardens and admired the pumpkin competition display – some of the squashes weighed in at over 80kgs! Jess decided it would be worth a return visit with her Mum in the spring – we agree – spring is a particularly special season at Alowyn with the wisteria walk in full flower.
Joan drove the pair back to Yarra Valley Lodge after a lovely, varied day, filled with memories from visits to so many different venues.
