Almost up to date

March 23 and 24 we took off to the North Central high lands of Victoria famous for gold, Ned Kelly, wheat and lamb until modern times when vineyards started sprouting up and truly wonderful reds were created.

Because I've had an anonymous request for more pics of Papa, I'm including this photo of our guides (Shelley and Graeme) and us at our last 2011 dinner together, celebrating with dinner and a wonderful bottle of shiraz.

Second photo is a life-sized wooden sculpting of local "hero" Ned Kelly: for what wikipedia says about him.

The towns we toured were charming...this photo fairly typical...although their names did not sound so very typical: Wangaratta, Benalla, Glenrowan, Wodonga, and Wahgunyah...fall trippingly from one's lip, no?
