Vineyard Visit

Haibun

A patio of filled tables and empty bottles. A trio plays the Beatles, the lead singer tapping a tambourine against her thigh.

We stopped at the Torne Valley Vineyard on the way back from Harriman State Park. A far different experience then the last time we had come, when it was closed for a wedding.

Only the late hour and fatigue from our hike prevented me from getting us a table, a bottle of red and a bread-and-cheese platter.
