Spectacular Spring Day

IMG_3628Today was a spectacular Spring day.  Weather in the Upstate of South Carolina was just perfect – a very pleasant breeze, low humidity and comfy temps.  Good times indeed.

So wifey bought a set of patio “ambiance” lights – I call them glorified Christmas lights – and today we hung them on the pergola on our back yard.  Yes it took some doing to get them strung just right but the end result turned out quite impressive.

A few minutes after I took today’s featured picture, we had dinner under the warm glow from the lights.  Turned out nice actually.  Too boot, if you look closely at the picture you can see wifey gazing at our handywork, and Cooper – our Welsh Pembroke Corgi – watching over his domain.  He really takes watching over his realm seriously!  And yes, since I am partial to British cars, I am partial to the Corgi breed.  Cooper’s mate, by the way is Didi… She has been featured previously in this post.

Finally, to top everything off…  We enjoyed a wonderful Petit Sirah from Vina Robles Winery in Paso Robles, CA.  We have visited the winery and became members of their wine club,  the last time we were in Paso Robles – and it is highly recommended!


Good times indeed!!  :mrgreen:

    Hey those glorified Christmas lights look pretty sweet! Nice way to set the mood. Wine club members? You are classy people! Too bad you’re at the opposite end of the country or I’d invite myself over for a glass…

      “Classy people!” – not hardly!! The wine club thing is just a nice way to get something unavailable in our neck of the woods.

      What I agree on is too bad we don’t live closer. I would love to go on one of those “road trips” like the one to Skull Valley you recently posted about… And about the glass… Yes indeed! 🙂
