We don't do big gifts to each other for our anniversary. What we do is experiences and travel. Our wedding was even overshadowed by our honeymoon trip to Maui. Why break tradition?
Our first stop was the Cottage Winery. Every trip we go on involves a winery of some type. It has since our very first trip together to the vineyards out east on Long Island.
We planned on stopping at a vineyard on our way to our mountain cabin, it wasn't going to be this one but when we passed it we had to turn around and check it out. Perched on the side of a mountain with sweeping views, excellent live music, the tastiest Malbec I ever had and stories of a local named Helen turned out to be a great start to our weekend.
It was REALLY windy!
Wine-high as we were, we decided a good short hike nearby would be a good idea to walk off our libations.
A quick 1/2 mile hike was exactly what we needed to get the juices flowing again and our legs stretched before we got back in the car to our final destination.
