Suzie stayed in N.O. during Ida, but left on Monday to come north until power is restored. Yesterday, Jan, Suzie, and I took a day trip to Enoch's Stomp, a vineyard and winery near Marshall, TX. It was so much fun and such a beautiful setting--on top of a hill overlooking the vineyards.
We were so busy talking and looking that I didn't even think of taking pictures, so I pulled these from the website.
The pizzas with cauliflower crust and figs and honey were delicious and their Chardonnay was so good, I bought a bottle to bring home for Fee.
After lunch, we stopped by Bear Creek Smokehouse and browsed their gift shop. I did take these pics of the turkey and the longhorn cattle.
I have to remember that there are things in Texas worth visiting and celebrating. I loved visiting Dallas museums, Jefferson, and Blue Moon Gardens until Covid and the disgraceful tactics of state government. Texas has so much to offer, it is such a shame that the state has become synonymous with voter suppression, mask denial, and an ultra-conservative state government.
