Looking to the northeast, across the vines to our hamlet, then across the river valley.
I just got a message from Ken that he has arrived safe and sound, if not a bit tired, in North Carolina. He's been up for nearly 24 hours, so I'll bet he's ready for bed. As for me, I've got some errands to run this morning. And it's another freezing morning, so that's good for the growers. When I passed one of the guys in the vineyard early yesterday morning, it was quite nippy out. He smiled and said, "Feels good, eh?" In French, of course.
