Loving Life after 50

Rainy Day People Drink Wine

Friday was a cool rainy day, one that called with the return of pants, a sweater and yep even awesome rubber boots. What is a girl to do on a rainy Friday, well this one likes to think about wine…  well thinking of wine is better than trying to figure out how to get a good picture under an umbrella,  a lesson I hope some of you can teach me in the future. For this Friday, which I am now titling FlashBack Friday, to heck with #TBT I am going with #FBF.
 September 2009, my first tour of Niagara’s Vineyards, heck my first tour to any vineyard, hard to believe I made it through 45 years without seeing a vineyard.  I will confess that I have done my best to make up for that lack of education since 2009.
Flashing back to a cool rainy September day….
a girl and her guy in some peoples definition of heaven, nestled amoung the wine barrels, sampling exactly what happens to grapes once plucked from the vine. We spent three glorious days in Niagara on the Lake, the final result, well let’s say I brought home a few bottles as memories.
 Miles/Acres of Vines stretching as far as the eye can see on the Shores of Lake Ontario.

We have been back several times but I thought I would introduce you to the ones I meet my first time, all hold a special place in my heart/cellar.

  • I have a cousin who lives in Ontario, it looks like such a beautiful place to live. I'm a real fan of coloured jeans and they go well with your fun wellies!

    • It is a beautiful province Lorna, you need to visit. and thanks, these were my fav wellies but they are so stained from wearing them during the Folk Festival.

  • Gorgeous photos! Adorable rain boots, also 🙂
