Wine Tasting Trip

Saturday Joe and I took off and went on a little road trip. We went to Clinton, Iowa to visit a local winery there.

The winery was having a dog contest for the cutest costume. Of course my dog is the cutest, so we had to enter.

We drove up there and presented our photos of the cutest dog ever, no matter what he is wearing. We had a blast. We arrived a little early so we could get back home before dark. There were not to many people there while we were, but that made it even nicer for us.

The girl working was so much fun, and I am sorry to say I do not remember her name for sure, and she even gave me her card so we could contact each other, but sadly I lost it. I intend to call and get her information again, so we can keep in touch.

I really would love to have her come our way and sit on our deck and have a glass or two of wine.

We had such a good time, while we were there we didn't see any other dog lovers with pictures come in. I was really hoping to see some of the others photos. But when you think about it, that could be good. Win because we were the only ones.. Naaa,

The name of the winery is Wide River Winery, and we love the wines. It is a good road trip and everyone is so nice when you get there.

It is a little out of the way but well worth the drive. Right now the road to get to it is a little ruff, so if you have a ruff riding vehicle, bring a pillow to sit on. It didn't bother me, but my husband Joe, yelled every time I hit a pothole. It is a dirt road and some sections were so bumpy you just could not avoid hitting a hole. Like I said it didn't bother me, there was wine at the end of the road, so onward hooooe
