Today was a day for meeting bloggers, I had made contact with “Willow Tree” the author of “A Dingo’s Got My Barbie" who lives in the Upper Hunter Valley and arranged to call in for a visit, he suggested that we call in to meet “Caroline” the author of “Beezlebublog” as we would be passing by her Café at Wingen on the New England Highway about 30 minutes away from his place, we duly missed this spot and had to return about 10 kms to complete this meeting… it was a well worthwhile trip though to meet the charming Caroline and I would recommend anyone passing through Wingen (a tiny hamlet, so she is easy to find at the Plough Inn Café) call in and enjoy a coffee and chat.
This is the Plough Inn Café where Caroline is your hostess, she was not keen to have her photo taken so you will have to take my word for it that she is an attractive and personable lady.
On then to Peter’s (yep, another Peter!!) who chooses to live alone at
Caroline had mentioned that Peter had made muffins when she visited, we wondered whether this courtesy would be extended to two strange male visitors?? As we arrived Peter was just removing a lovely tea cake from the oven, this was a real treat, but when we went to look at some photos Belle, who is a young Beagle/Border Collie cross decided to scoff the remaining half of the cake.
As I have found in the past, meeting someone who’s blog you are familiar with is almost like meeting an old friend, there is some common ground already there to build on, so meeting Peter and his four legged friends was a pleasant experience.
We are over nighting at a small town, just north of Willow Tree, we will spend another night on the road at Glen Innis before heading into
We have had a most enjoyable two weeks and have been fairly typical tourists for most of the time, there are many photos to share which I will post in the very near future.
This is Peter aka Willow Tree with Bentley and Belle paying close attention.

The remains of the Tea Cake when we left the room for a while.
Peter remonstrating with Belle about the missing cake, the eyes were not really protruding just caught by the flash.

I never loved another person the way I loved myself.
