Early Fall Mini Vacation and Vineyard Visit!
I can't believe it's October already! The summer is always over too fast but I managed to escape to the seaside for a mini vacation last week when it was still summer warm with blue skies.
Stonington, CT is a really gorgeous little seaside town close to the border of Rhode Island. I've been going there for years and I find it so relaxing to wander the streets and admire the old mariners mansions with their widows walks and sea views. I spent a few hours just watching and photographing the many sailboats that passed by from the lighthouse point.
Another fun venture is a visit to the local Stonington Vineyard. It's a tiny vineyard on a country road where they make their wine from grapes grown on the land and I've found some tasty treasures here. This visit I discovered their Pink Noir blend which really hit the spot on this steamy Indian summer day. Very crisp and light but not sweet, I could drink this all summer and be happy!
Hope you enjoy scenes from my mini vacation and next week I'll finally be diving into fall and blogging my famous gluten free Apple Cobbler recipe so stay tuned!!
