The Chocolate Tour

Today we went on the Haigh's chocolate tour. (Homeschool activity) I found it really interesting. The building above has been owned by Haighs for nearly 100 years. It is quite a famous landmark in Adelaide. My parents tell stories of meeting friends at the Beehive Corner when they were teenagers. Of course the kid's most important question was answered - yes they give you a taste of chocolate on the tour!
Even Miss 16 wanted to come with us (our recent homeschool defector who now goes to high school) and her teachers helped out by going on strike this morning! (Fortunately!!!) Which meant that she could come with us and then go to school for the afternoon. I spent the afternoon sewing. I managed to finish a pair of overalls and a jacket for my grandson. Hopefully I will have a photo to show you tomorrow. This week has just flown and I'm not sure what I have done! Tomorrow holds more sewing and then a trip to a friends place for the kids to play.

It's a fascinating tour isn't it. I liked the behind the scenes equipment like the chocolate spinning contraption.(the samples were mighty fine too)

I remember seeing this store front on a flying visit to Adelaide. We never got to go in. What a shame, I would have enjoyed a chocolate tour, and a sample whilst going around. x
