am i in spain ?....




am i in spain i ask myself?
donkeys , olive groves , and fresh figs[ more on that subject tomorrow]....
no i am lucky enough to have been invited to alex's organic olive grove nestled in the perth hills called cherith grove in gidgeganup...
pat and i drove to alex's for the day and what a wonderful day it was too..
we had the perfect lunch in her cafe[it wasn't open that day] and sat and chatted to the lovely sue from talleringa bed and breakfast .there was just the four of us enjoying girlie talk and eating a platter of new norcia bread ,homemade olive tapenade ,hummus and babaganouche[i think i have spelled them right].
these are days that are godsent and only happen when all the universe is working together and they are to be treasured ..
this is why i came to australia -to have all these wonderful experiences with wonderful people and i know how lucky i am to have all this at my fingertips...
in the uk my best friend jude and i would be out tootling all over in the little english villages in north yorkshire...
we would have a pub lunch [no alcohol mind] and then stop later for an english high tea and then home to our families with little treats we had bought from our jaunt..
well pat and i had a tootle and what a tootle it was too...
thank you alex for a lovely lovely day and we hope to have many more...

What a fabulous day you and Pat had..
Sure is pretty up that way, and it could be mistaken for Spain, goats, olives etc..
