it has been a busy summer with guest, travel and of course the cabin/shack project ....little time for rest, but when you are with close friends....the time together can be the equivalent of a nice, long escape of a nap.
well, the weekend before last we had some friends from seattle and nyc in town visiting. of course they were chomping at the bit to see the cabin in its "before and very naked" state. so, we just planned a nice weekend in the wine country.
i have to say that i did bring my camera, but i did not take the time to scout some great shots (my friend john was the photographer and i am anxiously waiting to see the results and promise to post more then).
well, i was able to secure a wine tasting at scribe winery in sonoma and i couldn't have imagined a more blissful setting than this. you must visit this special winery on your next trip to sonoma valley. total local feel with an optimistic and young and careful energy. this place is protected from the growing commercial feel of the wine country. i can't speak enough about it, but can share a few shots.
the photo of the big spanish style home is a home on the property that they are going to start restoring soon. they told us to take a peak and explore our hearts out, so while i enjoyed a nice pinot, my partner in crime took them up and explored the home and discovered some great drawings on the walls (bee drawing). it is a diamond in the rough..with all the original elements to make this one a stunner.
the last photo is of this charming outdoor dining room out of odds and ends....one could say it is etsy gone wild.
photo's by myself and LDRC.
