Thanks P.G. Almost finished posting the trip.

Yes indeed, Marmee, and a good chuckle is right up there with good wine.

You know, I've always wanted to "like the taste of wine." But I could never acquire the taste. The glasses are so elegant and pretty. People look so sophisticated when they drink it. Oh well. Love the photos!

Dear Brenda, because I love to cook, wine has been an important part of enjoying the whole experience. My children, now all grown, embrace the love of cooking, gardening, and joy in tasting fine wine (a hobby that goes hand-in-hand with gardening and love of the earth).

I suppose wine is an acquired taste but we have much more in common ... like 'big toilets'!

Wouldn't a giant bubble bath right
in the middle of all of this beauty at sunset with glass in hand be simply fabulous !
