Remnants from the evening

When plans go awry – the restaurant you hoped to visit is closed for the holiday weekend, the state park scaled back hours due to budget cuts, the attendant isn’t at their post of the observation deck… These things can wear on you when you’re trying to be a good ambassador to your town.

But that disappointment becomes very distant when you’re sharing wine and conversation.

An extra special thanks to Chris over at Full Pour for these most excellent selections from Bonny Doon Vineyard.

Now I’m not good with adjectives and wine, and for these I was sold just on the label alone – which afforded a good bit of conversation. But the contents of the bottles made up for all the things that went wrong over the weekend, and even inspired me to recall some Beastie Boys lyrics (from Hello Nasty), which for me is an indicator that things are going right.
