Last Day Here!
Done picking! Harvest is over! I've learned a lot about grape diseases, what's good and what's bad. I've been having a marvelous time with the other WWOOfers, but it will soon be time to move on. Most of us will go on to a music festival in the Caitlin's and then split off from there. I plan to hitch a ride up to the North Island and continue WWOOFing at a Celtic winery in Levin.
As winter is on the horizon, snow is beggining to dust the mountain tops and the leaves glitter the ground with yellow and red. The weather is still sunny and the air crisp. I'm hoping the winter brings lots of great snowboardng and new snowy adventures. However I am jealous that it will be nice and sunny in California!
On our days off here, I have learn to knit and have made myself a beanie! We have also been to the surrounding towns to explore and experience some city life. We also went on a small hike near Bannockburn one afternoon. Today is my last day here in Bannockburn and I have had a wonderful time meeting the coolest and silliest people. I have learned heaps about grapes and how to turn them into wine, but now it is time to move on! Keep me in your travel thoughts!
