OK, first stop was Wildrotter Vineyard. One bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and we were on our way.

Then we stopped at Dobra Zemlja Winery and the first thing we saw was this sign. Actually this was the first of many signs around the grounds. So you know me, while the trio was tasting wine, I went looking for a Rattle Snake. Nope, didn't find one.
But I did find another pond. The only thing about this one was the shallowness of the water. Don't think it would sustain any life.

Had a great dinner. I had Wild White Mexican Shrimp chili/ginger rubbed with lemon/garlic sauce served with Basmati rice. My wife had the steak special, but I don't know what our friends had because I had my face in the shrimp.
Oh, I didn't mention that the Imperial Hotel is slightly haunted, did I? Here's a little excerpt from the website Ghosts-Mysteries.com. Laurie has experienced the paranormal at this hotel, but the one experience she will never forget is when in 1988 she saw a full body apparition of a cowboy in Room 1 of the Imperial Hotel in Amador City.
It's a cool area we live in.
Fishing this week.
I didn't associate Northern Cali with rattlesnakes.
Did I miss something or did you buy any wine?
Wow, way cool area. What a great trip. Like your photos. You just got to get a pic of Doggie D.ReplyDelete
Love pomegranates, I too have never seen a tree. I think it has been nearly 20 years since I had one.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the flash back.
its a sickness, anytime a fisherman sees water, mind always wanders to what possibly could be swimming in there!ReplyDelete
