Winery day

A beautiful day in the northwest-sun, blue skies, and 70s. What more could we ask for?

Started out the morning by going for a stroll in a park along the water in Kirkland, just north of Bellevue. Beautiful scenery and beautiful flowers.
From there we took a drive around Lake Sammamish which is pretty long. No pictures, we didn't stop, but beautiful scenery.

Then we headed up to the Woodinville wine country for some wine tasting. Started out at Chateau St Michelle. Taking the short tour then wine tasting - we were impressed. Tasted quite a few wines and ended up purchasing 6 bottles being shipped home.
I was quite surprised by their quality, hospitality and beautiful location.

We went onto several other tastings, but nothing else measured up.

Columbia was our last winery which wasn't that good.
Then we headed back to the hotel. Probably walk to John Howie steakhouse for dinner tonight. Then we head out tomorrow a.m. Flight at 9:55. So that means leaving for the airport at 7 a.m.

It has been quite enjoyable experiencing the cool weather!
