Vanity and Vines-Part 2


When we arrived at Dunolly Jo had to go and schmooze with the owners for a bit, so I took the opportunity to have a little lie down and a good guzzle of water.
Then we needed a costume change, some bubbly and we had a little stroll amongst the vines!


I told Jo to pretend she was in a Fellini film.

Get you strolling round the vineyards like a pro! I adore that frock and cape combo and Jo ain't too shabby either!
Love how ghostly those shrouded vines look, you're making me crave a glass of vino in the sunshine but that's a bit naughty at 2pm I suppose!
What fun, I wish I was there with you!
Love you!
