Picnic Bridgeview Winery ~ Cron? ~ Macadamia Nut Day

Good 49º morning. Yesterday we hit triple digits at 100º.
One of only a few this year.
Brian and Jen set up a birthday party picnic for me at Bridgeview Winery...
in Cave Junction. The winery has been there since 1986.
Their Blue Moon Chard is outstanding!
Sami got a ride in on the ice chest.
Jen and Jean had brought lots of goodies .. cheeses and sandwich fixin's. Jeannie brought a fruit tray.
Jen made lemon cupcakes and the frosting had
red sprinkles!

Lots of ducks, geese, 3 swans, and a gazillion large trout in the ponds.

The 'kids' (Tucker, Sami, Brian, and Bill) had a great time
feeding them all...

But then Sami accidentally dropped some little toy of
hers in the water... Brian and this fellow who worked there went into action to find the missing-probably-eaten-by-a-swan-or-duck-or-trout pink thingy....

No luck.
A wonderful relaxing afternoon with family and friends
and some good wine.
On the way home I captured the following pictures of
a local farm stand signs...
