Mornington Peninsular Victoria, I stayed with old friends Helen & Jack on their beautiful 20 acre property in Dromana & sampled many great home grown wines. The property next door is Stillwater where you can arrange a luxury wedding or birthday celebration.
Here is where it all starts.
Mornington peninsula s a popular holiday destination, famous for its beaches, wineries & outdoor activities.

Helen who along with Jack owns this lovely property was my girlfriend in 1982, It has been around 20 years since I last saw her. It was terrific to catch up with these great ladies from so many years ago.
Here are the girls as they used to be

The Mornington Peninsular Victoria is primarily a local tourist region, with popular natural attractions such as the variety of beaches both sheltered and open-sea and many scenic sights and views. Other popular attractions include the various wineries, mazes and the diverse array of water sports made available by the diversity of beaches and calm waters of Port Phillip and Western Port. Most visitors to the peninsula are residents of Melbourne who camp, rent villas and share houses or stay in private beach houses. It is known simply as “The Peninsula” to locals and Melburnians alike, giving rise to the expression “going down the peninsula”.
The iron horse
What a great garden ornament, Helen loves her horses.
Wonderful catching up with old friends
It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years since I last saw Jan.
Helen & Jack were great hosts.
