Weekend in Wine Country

So it turned out to be a really neat time up in wine country. As mention in the last post this trip had nothing to do with work, but rather just to relax and enjoy the time off. The weather on Friday was wet, but we made the best of it.

Even though the weather was not the best we still stumbled upon some really neat places. I didn’t take the camera out much on Friday because of the weather. Which turned out to be fine as it gave me a chance to just sit back and enjoy.

On Saturday we continued the trip, but with some amazing weather. The sun was out the food was good, and yeah of course the wine too. Ended up with a few bottles this day. My dad met a wine maker and got a new friend. He took us out back and explained some of the grapes and some additional info about the wine making process. Even got a free bottle out of it.

The day continued on and turned out to be a great time. So now we are back and ready for another week. Maybe another relaxing trip won’t be too far in the future…
