View yesterday as I was heading into Angaston from Nuriootpa.  I’m looking back to towards Nuri.

Still cloudy, wet and overcast after a week of heavy rain, wind, storms and flooding.

Vineyards trying their hardest to start flowering. It’s been spring here since 1 September (officially and according to the calendar) though still very cold and wet as we continue living with that bone idle mischievous pair of Old Man Winter and Jack Frost

Strathlyn Coach House Bed and Breakfast is on the left coming into Angaston before Salters Winery and Restaurant.  I will visit Salters Restaurant and Saltrum Wines in a later post.

Gardens around Strathlyn House (from website)

Strathlyn – more here at Beautiful Accommodation

 

I might be able to get closer to Strathlyn House and Coach House for better shots later though it is back off the road some distance behind large old trees. You can’t really see the Coach House from the road because of the trees.  The images above are from Strathlyn Coach House website.

 

 

If you want a peek you can see more at the web site which provides some lovely views as well as more including information on historic Angaston. You can also visit the page on Angaston at the top of this blog.

Vineyards on the other side of the road before Angaston. Of course vineyards pretty well carpet the region around Angaston.  Always, beautiful.

Lavender rows at entrance to Vinters Bar and Grill on the left heading into Angaston yesterday. I wasn’t dining here yesterday and stopped to take these few photos. A gorgeous place for fine wine and dining, I’ve been a few times. Always a success with its rustic ambience and atmosphere.

The climbing vines over the pergola are starting to flower for the coming al-fresco dining.

This image of the main entrance (from Vinters web site) is obviously taken in summer when the vines are lush with shade and atmosphere for al-fresco dining … and here’s the Menu at Vinters.

Views of coming into Angaston from Nuriootpa yesterday.  More evergreen trees.  Yes, parking is on the left side because we drive on the left.
