There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

Wine country

Sunday's are the best because of the variety of things people can do on this day : church, watch sports,  go to the movies, perhaps a picnic or a visit with family and friends. The possibilities are endless. This last Sunday was spent roaming endless vineyards immersed by green mountains and blue sky.
The Napa valley in Sonoma County, California, is home to arguably some of the worlds best vineyards. I wouldn't disagree.
Mansions stand out like Greek Gods, inviting all travelers to stop in for a wine tasting. The vines are just starting new grape buds, flowers blooming in the warmer weather.
I imagine I'm a bumblebee, flying freely on the warm, soft breezes sniffing the glorious scents in the air.
Lakes shimmer brilliantly in sunlight, nothing seems wrong or out of place here. Nature is calling the shots, taking her sweet time, mulling perfection from the soil. I find artwork made from scrap metal the perfect juxtaposition to the endless gardens.
At the end of the day, I taste a California Cab, velvety smooth and abound with flavor....
Intensely red with color, yet powerfully balanced.
