We then had a lovely meal watching the sun set over the hotel's vines...
...finished off with a Happy Birthday Rocky Road dessert:
After a relaxed breakfast in our room, we made our way back to Sydney along the winding back route after stopping in to buy some cheese for Christmas at one of the Hunter's cheese shops, The Smelly Cheese Shop. The cheese we bought lived up to the shops name, and was indeed very smelly.
Albie was delighted when we returned home - not only because we were back, but because of the smelly blue-cheese package he found in the cool bag!
