The beginning of the month meant another birthday and good friends came out to help me celebrate by a wine tour around the area. We rented the FART Bus otherwise known as the Foothills Area Rapid Transit and safely jumped from winery to winery tasting delicious Sierra Foothills Wine. I have to say my favorite was Holllys Hill. The view and the wine were superb. Though, there was this amazingly delicious chocolate port wine that I fell in love with at Narrow Gate. The wine adventure had a theme and it was certainly fun dressing up. The next day, most of us got up early and ran around my favorite lake, Jenkinson, (A.K.A. Sly Park) in Pollock Pines. I jiked w/ a friend who does not run, but did manage to get her going for a little bit! She did awesome and I’m thinking, “perhaps I will make a runner out of her yet.” I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends in my life. Don’t know what I would do without them really and am very happy they came out to see me!
