Seasons Greetings Barossa Style

8.17pm, Wednesday 21st December, Murray Street, Angaston, Barossa Valley, SA

Evening folks, as promised we’ve just gone for a bit of a drive through the Valley to see a few of the Festive Barossa sights. Here’s a few to get you started :

Santa on the front window at Beaurepaires Tyres in Tanunda

Santa – still in Tanunda – at Northern Plumbing Supplies

Santa with his sleigh modified to be whipped through the skies by a team of kangaroos. This is a famous local Barossa landmark – in Nuriootpa, on the road out to Greenock – and each Christmas – as long as I’ve been in the Valley anyway – it appears in the front yard of an old timer retired maintenance engineer. As soon as it gets dark, the kangaroos start bounding along under spotlights (pretty impressive what a whole dose of bicycle chains can do) and each year something extra seems to be added into an already jam packed front yard.

So four more sleeps kids………..and tomorrow I’ve got some more sights in mind, but will have to wait until after 9 pm when it all lights up. See ya tomorrow when it’s our official end of year lunch and breakup.
