Mission Hill (x2) and Carmelis

Today we headed out to Mission Hill for their Discovery Tour, an hour long tour of the cellar, viticulture and four wine tastings. Such a delight! It's absolutely gorgeous there...

And then we headed to Carmelis Goat Cheese Farm to try their gelato...delish! I had some sour cherry and MrP had Mint Chocolate & Chocolate (he's so boring!). When we went to pay, we realized he lost his wallet (presumably at Mission Hill) so we headed back across the lake to Mission Hill again. The people there were truly great to deal with and as expected, he'd been so excited by his ice wine purchase, he'd forgotten his wallet! HAHA

As for the wedding on Saturday - it was pretty much torrential rain & heavy winds, so the 9th hole at Gallagher's Canyon was a write off, but we did enjoy a beautiful ceremony in their clubhouse, followed a while later by the cocktails, supper and dance. Of course, once the ceremony was done, the rain had let up, so they did get some lovely outdoor pics, I bet!

Again, an older card that I completed with some fave colors =)

  1. Thanks for sharing your pics, I love seeing where other people visit! We try to find new places to go every year, but it is still nice to see other pics!

  2. Lovely photos.

    River rock, black and white is one of my fave combos too. Nice, simple layout.
