Friends, Wine and Fun

Yesterday, a bunch of us went to the annual Friends of Children camp. There were 8 of us, we drove down in the late morning to get there just as lunchtime was getting over. (Close shave, that!)

We spent two hours with the students, talking to them and trying to give them a little advice (though as one of us put it later - we feel inferior talking to them as they seem so much smarter than we were at that age). Our only regret was that we had so little time, for the hours just flew past. 

We were all eager to visit a well-known vineyard not far from our way, so we made for it after we left the camp. Entry to the vineyard had closed by then, so we sat in the little restaurant, drank wine and ate and made conversation, while the setting sun scattered its golden rays around us. For summer the weather was wonderful - a cool breeze drove away the warmth. 

We sat there till afternoon lengthened into evening, and then made our way home. We had a lively discusssion on politics on the way back. It was a long day, and I should have been tired by the time we got home, but it was the wine or the fun I had that day that kept me excited and happy till late at night.

D and Saima: :-) That restaurant was the icing on the cake. Right on the highway near a small town - not what you would expect.
