After lunch at the Brick Farm Tavern we walked over to the tasting room at the Sourland Mountain Spirts. Erica Disch (the owner’s wife) has given me the heads up that limited bottles of the new bourbon would be on sale. It turns out Ray Disch was there as well. We walked in just before another couple walked in behind us. Ray wanted us to stay for a while, but we explained that we had to pick up a child from an event at 2 PM, which prompted a conversation about how Bhavna and I would soon be empty nesters and that we would have a lot more time to hang out at the tasting room.
Bhavna wanted to cheer me up. I’ve had a challenging week with my eyes.
She suggested that we eat lunch at Brick Farm Tavern and sample the latest craft ale from Troon Brewing. We dined on the patio for the first time. The weather was perfect. I had a caesar salad and the delicious home cut fries. Bhavna had the falafel plate. We both enjoyed our late lunch before walking over the tasting room at the Sourland Mountain Spirits.
I saw the tractor this morning on my drive for breakfast at Aunt Chubby’s. It was parked in the gravel parking area at the trailhead for the St. Michaels Farm Preserve. I wanted to stop and capture some images, but I was hungry and wanted to get breakfast. On my way home, I stopped to grab a few photographs, but I think that by this time, the sun was too high in the sky. The images are too backlit with too much contrast and shadow. I’ll try again tomorrow for some early morning light.
