A town where a ship load of German immigrants were given a parcel of land
We had been looking, casually for leather belts, for some time, and while I was thinking about what we would do today, it occured to me that there was once a leather shop at Hahndorf, and it would make a nice drive on a sunny day, so off we went, in hope of it still being there. Whizzing down the freeway, passing trucks, instead of the other way around, we got to Hahndorf just as the villiage was comming to life. So we started to walk down the street, looking at this and that, when into sight came the the "leathersmith" What a delight, we hadn't been here for 11years and it was still the same, almost like a time warp. We enlisted the help of the young leather worker and finally left very satisfied with two new belts. When we got back we bought a latch for the pipe holder at the front of the van and then went to the caravan repair place to have it attached. Then lunch and rest. Sort of sounds like a holiday!
