Day 168 - Wining

Saturday, May 16, 2015

What a fun day today! Our first experience with the Lake County Wine Adventure was a blast! We hit 10 wineries in all, and I was really good about my food and wine intake. We visited a couple wineries that we'd never been to, and one of them is in the most beautiful spot overlooking a verdant valley of manzanita and pine trees that took my breath away. The owner is a young guy who is passionate about wine, and wonderful at making everyone feel at home in the tasting room. Our friends Alex and Slava were great partners to steer us to certain wines, and there was nothing disappointing about any of them!

We will go out tomorrow and travel along the other side of the lake to visit some more wineries. I really expected to blow the calorie budget today, and after tracking everything as carefully as I could, I still ended up with a deficit of about 400 calories - even allowing myself a little ice cream treat this evening! I may have to plan to eat a little more tomorrow!

I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend doing something fun too, especially if it's with people you love!

    If I visited that many wineries in one day, someone would be wheeling me around in a wheelbarrow. LOL I love wines too much. Glad you're having a fantastic weekend!

    That is so great that you are able to keep your calories guidelines and still enjoy yourself! you must be very disciplined. I think for many of us enjoying our time going out and doing things and being around other people eating and drinking is the challenge, and you seem to be handling it really well. Good work! emoticon
