|Rain Chain at Tiger Mountain Vineyards - I want one.|
Crane Creek Vineyards in Young Harris is on an old farm - as so many vineyards are. The tasting room is in the old farmhouse - very nice people. I don't know much about wine but I did buy one bottle of blush - need to support small businesses you know.
We stopped at Hightower Vineyards on the way back. We had a frozen peach belini - wonderful!
I sat on the back porch and chatted with a young lady - Professor of Medieval Art at Young Harris College. Really interesting to talk to her. The vineyard owner invited us to come back Friday evening for "Swine and Wine" - barbecue sandwich, slaw and first glass of wine - sounds like fun.
We saw a zip line - Seestah wanted very badly to zip down the line - but since her foot is still healing, we decided to skip the zip. I didn't want to go zipping without her - that would not have been good. Maybe next time.
This morning - 60 degrees - high this afternoon - 72. Absolutely perfect weather - perfect day. There are so many birds eating from the feeders on the decks - I think they come just to visit with us. Leisurely morning watching the birds, playing Scrabble. We headed down the mountain about 11:00 - drove to Clayton - really nice little town.
There is a store in Clayton that sells restored stoves and refrigerators made from the 1800's through the 1970's. They are completely restored and ready to use. The older ones have the original porcelain and chrome finish. One stove was made from copper. They are beautiful. He ships them all over the world - does a lot of custom work for people.
There are several nice shops along the streets of Clayton. We had a great lunch at Clayton Cafe - fried chicken breast that was huge - can't imagine a chicken that big. Field peas, greens, cornbread squash casserole and lots of other vegetables on the menu.
|All kinds of stuff to look at. RC Cola and Mini Moon Pie for $2.50. We did NOT get one.|
We are watching "House of Cards" on Netflix - evil people. But we can't stop watching...
Seestah brought home a couple of left over cornbread muffins to try to bait a bear into coming to the cabin. I tried to stop her - a man at the Cafe told her it really wasn't safe to feed the bears so she told him it was for the birds.
