Oh, my god, it’s been an incredible three months in Angaston and the Barossa Valley. It’s a very small town and word seemed to spread that we were in town, because it seemed like every time we met someone they said, “Oh, you must be the Americans.”
Everyone was so warm and so inviting and so friendly that we quickly felt at home.
Grant & Elizabeth and our hosts, Ken & Sue
The Blond girls – Kayla, Dana, Elsa and Alicia (all shown above) plus Belinda, Karla, Mel, Ashleigh, Georgia and, of course, owner Deb
The Mustards – (from left to right) Lochie, Daryl, Jaimee, Lisa, and Ebby. Oh, yeah, we’re in the photo, too.
The doctors – John and Margaret (John was Angaston’s doctor for almost 50 years. You gotta love a guy who says, “See that cemetery? Most of those people were my patients.”)
Plus all the people we don’t have photos of: Trevor, Lizzy and the horse. Jason and the crew at Soul. Diana the Yank and the crew at Rex. Scottie. John and Cassie. Carmel and Brian. Jo the Librarian. And all the others who made our three months in the Barossa so memorable.
Our sincere thanks to all the kind Aussies who took us in, invited us over for dinner and drinks, explained cricket to us, gave us directions, offered us advice, and so much more.
We’ll be back and we look forward to seeing you all again.
