Kyle and his girlfriend, Ana, came up Saturday. We did a little wine tasting that afternoon and then went to a lobster feed at the neighboring winery in the evening.
It was like a clam bake; we sat at long tables while big pots full of shrimp, sausage, artichokes, potatoes, corn and lobster bubbled away. Then we were directed to stand back and the contents of the pots were dumped down the middle of the table.
We dove in and got busy peeling shrimp, cracking lobster claws and chomping on the corn. I lost track of how many ears of corn Kyle ate. Kyle and Ana, who had not been to this event before, got right into the spirit of things.
We cleaned up everything.
This is my favorite winery event of the year. Great food, fun, live music and a view of the sun setting over the vineyards.
This morning we took the kayaks up to Jenkinson Lake and paddled around for a few hours; ate a picnic lunch on the shore, then paddled around some more.
Maybe summer isn't so bad after all.
