On Boxing Day we met other daughter, Carol and SIL, David at the airport. Soon we were all on the way to Melbourne. Two and a half hours later we collected a hire car and drove another 2 hours south to Rye on the Mornington Peninsular. Victoria is famous for having inconsistent weather. You can have 4 seasons in one day. Well we arrived in winter even though it is supposed to be summer. Lucky we had our jackets.
Carol and David got us to our accommodation, which was beautiful cottages in the bush. We didn't have time to explore because we were expected at Bernie's family's beach house for another Christmas Dinner and celebration.
Bill is amazed that we were actually going to taste this exclusive wine.
Peter decanted the wine and is sharing it between 15 of us. Peter and Holly live in the Margaret River wine area of Western Australia and he told us all about the wine we were about to taste.
Cheers to the family and to Bernie and Sonya's marriage. (Jason is on the left) It was a beautiful wine.
Time to pull the crackers. Helen (left) and Neville (right) are the wonderful parents of Bernie. They opened their holiday house for Christmas and the garden for the wedding.
The groom and bride to be.
The children help Santa Grandpa Neville give out the presents. Their little cousin Fox was in bed asleep.
