That left me the rest of the day with "no where to go and all day to get there," so I hopped on my bike for an adventure.
Instead of heading into town, which is my normal routine, I headed in the opposite direction, through our growing neighborhood and into farmland. The road was a tad rough, but the scenery was wonderful. Although I didn't get a photo of it, there was a beautiful deer nibbling on brush right near the road, then field after field of cows and horses. It was wonderfully peaceful and NO ONE yelled at me to get off the road. Awesome!
While I was out wandering, I passed the local winery (Messina Hof). I didn't have any wine as a few sips make me tipsy (what can I say, I'm a cheap drunk), but I loved biking past all the grapevines, not to mention the facility itself (which includes an inn and a restaurant) are beautiful.
I was only gone about an hour and a half, but it really set the pace for the day, slowing me down to enjoy the gorgeous blue sky, calm breeze, and mild temps. May every day be such a beautiful adventure!
