I’m always looking for natural products that don’t contain harmful ingredients, are sustainable in what they are made of, are kind to the planet, support small businesses and actually work! I have tried and tested a few products lately that I’m happy to recommend to others.
It started as friendly banter between campsites in the caravan park but we took one-upmanship to a new level with an over the top wine and food matching evening with a little help from some friends. What started out as a decision to have a crab and squid linguine meal one evening with our freshly caught seafood soon turned into an all-out degustation for four, where we finished up matching drinks with each course and produced a menu of dishes that we would be happy to order out anytime.
See how you think we went with our menu.
The McLaren Vale, or southern vales of South Australia is perhaps one of the best kept secrets when it comes to wine regions. It is known as a area for red wine varieties but now is also home to micro-breweries, gin distilleries, clever and quirky architecture and beautiful fresh, clean, organic food.
My latest getaway guide which you can find here on CamperMate gives you all the details. Definitely a reason to Holiday Here This Year!
Taking dogs on holidays is as much fun for them as it is for us I think. Like us, I’m sure they enjoy the social side of interacting with other humans and dogs. Dog friendly caravan parks are very popular and with more people travelling with pets they are catering more to the needs of four legged visitors, including installing dog washing facilities at some parks.
The locality of Port Hughes on Yorke Peninsula is just minutes from the town of Moonta and is a popular spot particularly for the fishing. Whether you want to try your luck on the jetty or launch a boat from the multi laned boat ramp, it’s a well known spot for fishos to head to. There are two caravan parks, a picturesque swimming beach, a store and café, and the Port Hughes Tavern is proving to be a big drawcard too.
A recent holiday to the copper triangle region of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia led me to discover some more street art, a pastime I love when travelling. In the towns of Moonta, Kadina and Wallaroo you can find some bright and beautiful murals, large scale and small, some that have been around for a while and others relatively new.
