This was the best day. It started off being a very windy trip there but the Driver was wonderful even went out of his way taking us to The Chocolaterie and ice creamery for something different. The drive home was The Best has he had some good ol' rock n roll music so we sang all the way home. Don't forget that was after a day of tasting beer and wine!
