...and my photograph every day for my blog has slipped a bit recently. I still take at least one picture every day because I do my 365 self portraits. I belong to both the main 365 Flickr group, with currently 14,556 members, and to another smaller group with only 216 members. The latter are very supportive and fun, so we comment on each others' photos and it is quite an incentive to post one. The blog takes a little longer to do and I don't have so many interesting things to talk about on a daily work grind basis- but I try!
Today, we did the usual chores and finally ended up at Sycamore Creek Vineyards for their 2007 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir release. The Chardonnay was their oaked version, but I prefer their Naked Chardonnay. This is only their second Pinot release and it is really nice. The grapes come from their Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards and it is a really good balance between fruity and smoky. It's still young, so will only get better but we like it! To accompany it they had three different kinds of dressed oysters, shrimp, cheeses, nuts and fruit. There was also some good live music. It was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon :-)
