YackaYacka Log - November 2015

It was a month of many contrasts was November. From cool days to cold mornings to very warm days. Was a month of many snakes with 3 being seen close to the house & shed. Was a lot of bird activity, especially from Kookaburras. Lots of Kangaroos, Wallaroos & Euros around. Looks like lots of Joeys on the way. There were lots of wildflowers as well but no photos this year.

Toot, Honk or Blast

As car drivers we all have that rare occasion to use our vehicles horn.
Sometimes to say hello  like an acoustic wave, sometimes to alert other drivers, to say watch out for others and sometimes to warn, threaten, shout at?
A Toot is a cheeky hello I can see you and is normally accompanied by a smile and a wave.
A Honk is a caring raised voice, to warn someone - be careful and stay safe.

Local wines & beers in the Adelaide Hills

This was a month where I had the chance to vist some of the local wine and beer makers close to Littlehampton & Hahndorf. Prancing Pony micro brewery at Totness (Hahndorf side of Littlehampton) has expanded and sells their full range of craft beers plus has some meals & burgers etc. The flavours are quite unique and the popularity is growing.
The Lane is a place I alway love to visit and when there I always think of the word provenance ie the story behind what you see. More about this in a later post I think.
