All the Fun of the Fair

Darren and Kim came over this evening for a polite drink and a viewing of the final two episodes of Carnivale. I finally gave Darren his (month or so late) Birthday gift - a bottle of Port produced by Belmore Cellars in Balwyn and a pair of Port Sippers. These were brought about by his previously mentioned love of a good fortified wine, and a suggestion by a co-worker that Belmore produced an interesting one (onsite in Balwyn in the same barrel for a good number of years).

We caught up over a few bottles of Holsten Bier, trading camping horror stories and discussing Darren's imminent trip to Indonesia, and then settled in for a couple of hours of Good vs Evil at the Carnivale. It only left us wanted for more (hurry up Season 2!)...

Watson and Holmes enjoy a pipe of Port.

During the television watching, Darren knocked the top of the Port and we enjoyed a Sippers-worth each. It's not a bad drop and certainly an interesting way to imbibe it.

With the dutifully employed on their way home, it's time to bring in the aforementioned unmentionables from the line and batten down the hatches for this evening's impending storms.


  • I think we have to perfect our grips on the pipes to something a little more elegant. -DFV
