I've Been Chasing Clouds Again
Whenever it is even thinking about raining here, the clouds put on a wonderful sky show. This show lasted from about Thursday night until yesterday, but we got very little rain – just enough to make me worry that my camera might get wet.
I've had to go home to process orders almost every day, and I took advantage of those trips to Templeton to chase clouds at most of my favorite wineries with great views of the sky. In the past few days I've been to Doce Robles, Peachy Canyon, Castoro, Venteux, and Tooth and Wine, which took over our local castle. The picture I've shared here came from next door to the castle.
I walked all over the castle grounds, climbed the spiral staircase to take photos from the second story verandas, and then circled the castle. Next door to the castle on the right is a small farm that often has cattle in residence. In summer I often see them resting under the large tree you see in the photo.
I went to Venteux Vineyards on the way home from my doctor appointment yesterday and discovered they also have a windmill hidden in back. Next to it was a small basketball court on which a youth team was practicing with a coach whle I was there. One of the staff gave me permission to walk up the hill where the water tanks were to get a view of the countryside, and I'd never been there before. It was invigorating and made me feel completely alive to look down at those views in one direction while looking up at the green hills in another.
I hope to be able to share some of the hundreds of photos I took soon. But my blog always gets first priority now. By the time I finish it, I'm witten out. It's harder to work writing on these sites when I have to go to the other house to process orders. I'll also be starting physical therapy for my knee by next week and that will also take up time. I'm back on my going to meetings schedule my surgery gave me a break from, and I've had two meetings in the last week and will have another tomorrow night. So you now know why I haven't been here much this weekend.
What interesting things have you been doing?
