Local apples and grape juice

Today’s breakfast was courtesy of Uncle Jim, who brought apples from Catoctin Mountain Orchard to a family gathering last week. So delicious; they didn’t even need the sprinkling of cinnamon I gave them.

Later in the afternoon, Mr. HP, Mr. Cheenius, and I (poor Cheenius wasn’t feeling well) visited some of our wonderful local vineyards. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful, bountiful area.

First stop: Flying Fox Vineyard, where we learned about the new Nelson 151 Trail, home to 7 wineries and 2 breweries.

Some very fancy people were chauffeured to Flying Fox to taste wines. We were not those fancy people.

We stopped at Cardinal Point Winery, home to possibly our favorite local wines, and finished the day enjoying the fabulous views at King Family Vineyards.

It was a lovely afternoon! Missed you, Cheenius!
