Northern Neck adventures

My friends, Phil and Elizabeth, invited me down to the Chesapeake Bay Wine & Harvest Festival at Stratford Hall this past Saturday, so I loaded up the Man Truck and headed down to the Northern Neck with Sammy. Phil & Elizabeth kindly offered us the use of the spare room at their place so I didn't have to worry about making the long drive there and back in one day.

It was blazing hot and the sun was out in full force, but fortunately the humidity wasn't too bad. Elizabeth had a tent set up where she was selling some of her art so we hung out with her in the shade and caught up for a bit. My friend Gretchen and her mom stopped by for a little later in the afternoon; Gretchen had been working at the festival earlier in the day and had been unable to partake in any of the tastings, so she and I headed off to try some wine while Sammy stayed in the shade in the capable hands of her mom and Elizabeth.

After sampling some of the offerings, I purchased a few bottles of wine from the Oak Crest Vineyard & Winery and Vault Field Vineyards; they'll come in handy when the in-laws visit later this week.

I blink and you've done a bajillion posts. Or maybe I'm just that out of the loop. Great seeing you this weekend. I'll have to send my mom a link to that pic. She can live vicariously through that for a while... :)

I'm posting more because I'm afraid my brain my atrophy from lack of use these days!. I'll send you the link to photos--Sammy's always up for some surrogate grandparents!
