Holiday w(h)ining

bottles

While relaxing in the backyard on Memorial Day (and the end of my long vacation), I noticed one of my old friends (Shutterbug) sent a message on Twitter that she was looking for an adventure companion for the day.  I definitely wanted to make the most of this vacation.  It was just my day and I responded in time.  (say what you want about Twitter, but I get the greatest deals and find out about cool stuff even in only 140 characters)

We made a date to visit a local winery, to allow Shutterbug to take pictures and so we could test out the free wine tastings.  It was a gorgeous day in a wonderfully beautiful and peaceful location.

We packed some cheeses, chocolate, and other assorted goodies for a picnic after the tasting.

It was such a perfect ending to my vacation.  Perfect weather, beautiful scenery, good wine (maybe too much?), good food, wonderful company, and fabulous conversation.
