Thank you, jon boat joe! Just another Sunday morning in or near Paradise . . . .
[I still like the D90, especially with the battery pack; unfortunately of course neither it nor the D5300 could be described as "robust" cameras. Or waterproof.]
Nice work Bernard. Thanks for the warning, without it, I would have thought it genuine. L
It was a wonderful visit--hard now to believe it was only eight years ago! It was our first trip to Belize, and our only trip to Guatemala; but both Sheila and I wish we could return! I'm very glad you like it!
Thanks, Corey! This was carefully designed and built by the present owners, and the stable motif is carried through the whole building--although there is no room for horses; and it is very comfortable!
Thank you very much, Corey! One great attraction of the new wineries is that we are allowed to visit some of the classic farms--some of the farmers are not as welcoming! I'm very glad you enjoyed the photograph!

Now, this picture is running with about 50 visits per day.
Now we have more than 300 000 visits by Panoramio or GoogleEarth.
I am glad, that you have estimated this photo, you have make 447 "LIKE" and 58 "bookmark - favourite".
Hi Tony! This is one of the most recently opened wineries in Virginia, and it should be a very solid attraction for Surry County. I'm glad you like it!
Thank you very much, CorpsStories! Virginia has in general been a very kind preserver of its classic churches, and it is a pleasure to be able to record and share them using our 21st-Century technology.
Hi, jon boat joe! Welcome back!
It seems intended to shelter (note the lightning rod, which is probably a nice and perhaps necessary touch) and to provide climbing exercise for goats, of which there are three now enclosed in this pasture. I of course attempted to photograph those as well, but they followed me closely along the rails of the fence, I suppose thinking they would be fed or given treats, so I could never get a clear shot of them--the pictures were mostly of the white fence. And it was a very hot day, so I too easily was discouraged. But they are small, attractive goats, and should delight visitors to the Winery!
