I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

SkyWatch Friday January 23, 2009


Not much sky here because it was raining that day, but I liked the colors on the vines, which are now resting. This was taken in December at Ridge Winery. It seemed very restful. For more SkyWatch photos, please visit Skywatch Friday at http://skyleyblogspot.com/.

Great contrast between the green vinyard and the milky sky!

What a pretty scene in spite of the gray skies. We've been getting a lot of much needed rain, lately, eh? Hi from San Ramon.

That looks like "Big Wine Country." I've never been able to develop a taste myself. I was together with friends a couple weeks back, and upon seeing a $75 bottle I was shocked and asked my friend if he actually bought such an expensive bottle. His response was that it was the cheapest one he bought. Suffice it to say, I'll stick with my water with lemon juice, and an occasional sip from a more modestly priced bottle. (That being said, I really admire the people that know their wines well.)

Please don't think you HAVE to have a $75 bottle of wine! There are many, many reasonably priced California wines! Our goal is always to find some that are around $20 or LESS!

Yes, it does look very restful! There is something so satisfying about seeing such a lot of land under cultivation, too... beautiful!

Thanks for visiting me, and for your kind comment. :)
