Scenic Sunday - TarraWarra Lake

 
TarraWarra Lake
In the Yarra Valley on the Healesville-Yarra Glen Road is TarraWarra Estate, one of a number of fantastic wineries. Established over 20 years ago, TarraWarra has lovely gardens and sitting outside enjoying a drink or coffee, this is just one of the enchanting views.

We were here one Sunday afternoon and after tasting at the cellar door just wandered around drinking in the scenery.

Today's Quote: Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books - John Lubbock.

Apologies for not posting every day and visiting - I am going overseas in four days and have been busy organising the last minute details - as the time draws ever nearer I find there are many things still undone. I will try my best to visit your blogs before Thursday.

This is a lovely lake. Perfect for wine country.

Looks like a nice place for a picnic. A tidy one, of course! No littering in the nature!
God bless you!
