A Day in "The County"

On Friday, Bill announced that he was in the mood for a trip to visit Prince Edward County (translate that to mean the vineyards west of Picton). We had a look online at our options, and settled on the Norman Hardie and Rosehall Run Vineyards. We took the scenic Loyalist Parkway, along Lake Ontario to the Glenora ferry, where in spite of the long line we crossed quickly due to the use at this season of two ferries. FYI, this is the same route that the Yarn Harlot will cycle this week on her epic charity bike trip between Toronto and Montreal.
Now, I'm a non-drinker, so what was I looking forward to on this little expedition? First, a stop at Rosehaven Yarns in Picton, and second, a day in the idyllic summer countryside. I wasn't disappointed.

A day to knit, basking in the sunshine eating crisp pizza just out of a wood-fired oven, listening to nearby Quebec visitors quietly conversing in French, all the while watching wildflowers toss in the wind. Perfect.
