This past weekend, I attended a day retreat sponsored by one of my local yarn shops, Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe. What fun we had! The retreat was held at Les Bourgeois, a local vineyard, and I was just blown away by their beautiful grounds! We had a casual get-together with food, wine, and knitting, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. I even won the grand prize in the door prize giveaways! Scroll through for a bit of a photo recap:
The drive to the bistro takes you right past the vineyards
I hear the A-frame is a great place to picnic!
Getting to the bistro requires a lovely stroll down a scenic outlook hill.
The view from our attic room!
Hillcreek's owner, Karen Cox, and I took a moment to enjoy the view from the sunny porch
The gang's all here, and knitting away!
I've never seen such a fancy presentation for french fries before! The burger was delicious.
I won the grand door prize with this lovely Nantucket Bagg filled with goodies!
All in all I had a great time and was definitely glad I was able to go. I hear Rocheport also has a terribily cute downtown with restaurants and antique shops, so I'm planning another trip out that way very soon!
