Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt was “From Down Low”. I put this photo up….it is the City Hall of Bellingham Washington. I took it a few weeks ago when we crossed the border to visit Trader Joe’s. It is a beautiful building.
My Sunday started with a power yoga class. I was a sweaty mess when I came out. And the clouds in the sky were very ominous!
When I got home, I made some birds in a nest and had them with fruit (figs, orange, mango).
Dennis and I then ventured out for a “date day”. Our favorite berry farm which is about 45 minutes from home, Krause Berry Farm, has opened up a winery and we went out for a tasting.
I wouldn’t have said I’m a fan of fruit wines, but the wines we tasted today were delicious!! Krause Farms has evolved and grown over the years, I’ve been u-picking berries there for years, and each year, something new and fun is added. Here I am with Mr. Krause himself!
Here is the general store area and grounds. So many treats and trinkets to see!! And yes, my husband is a good sport!
Here we are at our tasting in the winery. (I look a bit pie eyed in this shot…and this was only the first of the 6 we tried)
As you can see, the winery has a western theme. LOVE the saddles at the bar, the little glass boots for tasting glasses, the western entertainment (‘Slim, Clare and a pig’) and the whole ambiance of the new building. Cheers to Krause!
The bees liked the flowers too.
We bought some of the early season strawberries and two strawberry shortcakes. I’d like to say they made it home…they didn’t, the strawberries were eaten in the car, and the cakes (lunch of champions! ) we eaten at our next stop!
We took the VERY long and very scenic way home via Crescent Beach. We took off our shoes and had a good walkabout in the tidal pools. Walks in the sun like that are good for the soul! I took a trillion pictures, here are a million of them.
This last one wasn’t on the beach, but it was by our car, and I loved it.
We had cocktail Sunday when we got home….today’s cocktail was a Shandy. Part beer (we used ginger beer), part lemonade (leftover from last Sunday’s brunch) and a little soda. Cheers.
I also had a little piece of Canadian Asiago cheese.
Dinner tonight was a glass of white wine from Krause that was delicious with our baked salmon, brown rice and steamed beans that was all drizzled with Bolthouse honey mustard dressing.
Wow…hard to believe the weekend is over already. (I say that every Sunday night! ) I’m off to hit publish, then watch the end of the Tony Awards. Have a great week all!! Your turn…what was the highlight of your weekend?
