Leaf Peeping
As you can see I live near the beach. All that sand and sun are great, but I miss the trees and leaves turning those beautiful colors. So we are off the do some good 'ole New England Leaf Peeping! Please come back on Monday so you can see what I did while I was gone. Everyone have a GREAT Halloween and be sure to take lots of pictures!

I'm going to to the opposite this week end, I'm leaving all these leaves for the sea....

Ilva, that's very funny! I just love the beach but after looking at your site and Farmgirl Fare, I had to get a tree fix! We went last year and spent a week in New Hampshire and I just could not get enough of all the fall foilage! We can compare pictures when we get back!

You've picked just the right time to go North, I'm sure it is absolutely beautiful! Please share some pictures when you return!

Though, for what it's worth, it's a really cold beach right now!

Hey V, it sounds like you are right in the heart of Virginia Wine Country! *beam*
Afton was okay, but right down the street is Veritas, which I HIGHLY recommend to go by- it is literally down the hill, before you get to Afton.

Another recommendation, and not too far a travel time, would be Kluge Winery( and King Estates ( These are all linked on my blog. And if you are looking for a place to eat in the area, it's more towards Wintergreen, but Basic Necessities (Nellysford area) is so personable and fun.

If you feel like going on a bit of an adventure on the way home, take 29 back, going towards Charlottesville, and visit DelFosse winery. They are new, and amusingly off the beaten path, but not too far, and some of the wines are quite enchanting. In fact, DelFosse reminds me of the way Veritas used to be when I first went to it.

I'd love to know where you are staying- are you guys doing a B&B? It sounds like a fun trip, and what a great time of year to do it!

ps thanks for the offer to pick up something, but we are planning to do another tour sometime soon!

S'kat-we are staying in Staunton so everything seems pretty close. Thanks all the recommendations. We will try to hit as many as we can. We have to do the winery thing tomorrow because we are going to the Farmer's Market and downtown Staunton on Saturday. Sunday we have to come home. My youngest is hopefully coming home from Iraq then. We will need to pick him up from the airport. We planned to stay a day longer but he called to say he will be headed home at the same time we were here. The best laid plans! We had planned to go to Cozumel to scuba dive but guess what?? lol! So we have just about given up on vacation plans this year. Maybe we can go to FL next spring to scuba with the Manatees then.

Well, it sounds like the trip will be worth the wait. Manatees are awesome! Have fun!
