Barossa Bus Trip


 Woodpatchers Annual Bus Trip
This year we went to the Barossa Valley and a good time was had by all, enjoying the perfect weather and gorgeous scenery.
First stop was Country Fabrics 'N' Things at Eudunda, who put on a scrumptious morning tea with home baked cakes and lavender cream.
 We had a lovely time shopping...
... and some more eating with Lunch at Angaston. 
Quilts on display and helpful tips for all at Barossa Quilt and Craft Cottage, between Angaston and Nuriootpa, where we finished off with a cuppa and biscuits to see us home.
Many thanks to our patient bus driver for a smooth and enjoyable journey.
