Walter Peak Gourmet BBQ Dinner

I sit here and have to take a moment to take it it all in. Infront of me the beautiful Lady of the Lake; The Earnslaw toots it’s horn, people meander around the shoreline marvelling at the pink sunset infront of us and a gorgeous concoction of smells from the bbq behind me meanders towards my nostrils.

I’m at Walter Peak Station with Real Journeys.I don’t want to be anywhere else.

A few days later I think about being over there. A forty minute boat ride on one of the oldest boats known to man (I may exaggerate, stay with me), history and family right at your feet. A beautiful homestead to wander the gardens, a sheep sheering show and a delicious eyes-pop-out-of-your-head-at-the-selection bbq to round it all off.

A chance to see a part of the lake you don’t normally see. A chance to experience an oldie-worldy way of life that still stands the test of time. It’s beautiful and still standing and I love that.

I had recently been on a Real Journey’s trip to Doubtful Sound and was aware of their trips being A** and this one did not disappoint.

After all that gorgeous deliciousness (you’re getting the picture) we headed outside to a lovely sunset and the old woodshed where we watched the amazing sheep dogs gather their sheep in for a show. The sheering of a sheep is a sight to behold in itself, quick as a flash there was a sheep ready and ripe for Spring. Two dogs sat ready for more work and I hadn’t even had chance to take my coat off. Legends!
