Yealands Winery for lunch

As we had a lovely fine day again today, and the laundry all up to date, John and Elizabeth suggested we have a picnic for lunch.  We headed south towards Seddon on the now closed SH 1, although it is still open as far as Clarence more than 50 km’s south. Arriving at the huge Yealands Winery, we registered at the reception and viewed an introductory video from Peter Yealand on the history of the world award winning winery.
