The forecast of possible showers did not deter the faithful and 9 vehicles set off on the scenic route to Lovels Bakery at Woodside for the first stop of the day.. Great coffee, food and service, but they could do with some more seating in their large area. Once refreshed the next stop was at the Herbig Family Tree at Springton, where some learnt about it’s history for the first time. Then it was on to Tanunda, and for most it was lunch at the 50’s Diner. An experience to be had, but it will not go on my regular dining venue list.
The day was the opening day of the Barossa Vintage Festival so we were spoilt for choice of venues to visit. We chose firstly to revisit the Carl Lindner Jaguar collection to see the upgraded showrooms and the immaculately preserved Jaguar vehicles. Then it was around the corner to the Bethany church grounds for a display and demonstration of old time trades and crafts.. There was something for everyone with dry stone wall making, rope making, blacksmithing, lacemaking, spinning and weaving and much more. There were also several vintage vehicles on display. Overall it was a long but very interesting day that everyone seemed to enjoy. And the rain held off all day.
