I was in McLaren Vale, the heart of the wine growing region, trying to find a well-known winery called Fox Creek.
I didn’t have a GPS in the car but I checked on Google Maps before I left so I had a pretty good idea. Pretty good, as anyone can tell you, is not good enough.
I knew it came off Almond Grove Road. Locals would know where that was.
I asked some passers by. Some said it was a little north, another somewhat east, a third said ‘straight ahead’, the honest ones shrugged their shoulders. Dunno, they said. I stopped and asked a guy in the coffee shop. He was adamant it was the next road to the left. It wasn’t.
Honestly, does anyone know where the ^%$&* they are???
* do you know where you are?
