Replied to Tuesday Photo Challenge – Treat by Hopewell Valley Vineyards %nameFrank Jansen (Dutch goes the Photo!)
Enough of this heat, though! Time for a break in the weather, so that we can enjoy the outdoors. Those perfect days that we enjoy so much are a real Treat! Yes, there are many ways to enjoy a treat, as we each have our own favorite ones. Therefore, with this week’s challenge, feel free to go in any direction that you consider a Treat!
Checked in at Hopewell Valley Vineyards.

The vineyards lie at the base of the Sourland Mountains and in close proximity of the Delaware Valley with heavy soils of clay and shale agriculturally classified as clay loam.

Bhavna and I decided to treat ourselves to an outing to the Hopewell Valley Vineyards. Her treat was a bottle of Pinot Grigio and my treat was listening to our friend, Matt, play classic rock and pop in their band, Acoustic Road.

We dined on a rustic pizza, Pizza Pinot Grigio, which was suggested as a good pairing with the Pinot Grigio wine, while listening to the band play U2’s Where the Street Have No Name, We Can Work It Out by the Beatles, and many other billboard hits.

As the evening moved on and the sun went down, Bhavna pointed me to the left side of the open courtyard, toward the grape vines and the evening sky. I was treated to a fabulous evening sunset.

My mom came up to visit just in time for our annual attendance at the Montgomery Township United States Independence Day Fireworks at the Montgomery High School. We’ve attended the fireworks since my kids were in elementary school. The colours are spectacular. I love it when the right combination of colours equals the red, white and blue of the USA flag.

In the beginning, it was just me, Bhavna and the kids but over the last few years, we’ve been joined by Bhavna’s family and friends. Our little blanket has grown to a circle of blankets.
