I felt blessed when Jen & Jeremy of
gave up their one free weekend in their Barossa season
and invited me to come and ride with them.
I was doubly blessed to be able to invite four friends.
I was blessed four times over;
Since to have even one special friend is a blessing;
So to be able to invite
four friends; each so special in their own way;
makes me blessed fourfold.
For three days we rode through stunning countryside;
For three days we rode amazing horses.
We had amazing weather;
and one short sharp shower.
Just strong enough to make our horses drop their heads
and canter flat out into and through the rain.
To find a rainbow at the other end.
Every meal was a blessing –
Hot home made soup and bread appeared as if by magic in the middle of ‘nowhere’
Stunning wines and gourmet sandwiches with warm fires.
Country market breakfast.
Degustation dinner and wines.
Flowers and pancakes for breakfast on Mother’s day.
This short Barossa breakaway,
after such a tumultuous year
of lock downs in Melbourne,
was an amazingly generous gesture by
Jen & Jeremy
One that will sustain the five of us,
through this never ending see saw that is Melbourne.
One that will stay in my memory forever
as a reminder
to count my blessings.
Thank you both from the bottom of my heart.
And because the Barossa break away Was such a blessing,
I add photographs for those who care to browse.
Thanks to this lovely crew and especially Jen for all these memories.
