Scrapping Optional Girls' Weekend (part II)

Sat., after our marathon run at Ruban Rouge, was spent mostly in and around the pool. We floated, played a little volleyball, ate lots and had a drink or two. Linda brought the most amazing cake for our sweet tooth (picture on Kip's blog) and I picked up an Italian four foot sandwich from Publix for our lunch. Around four, all eleven of us got 'prettied up' and headed to the Castle Winery here in Tarpon Springs. The courtyard is beautiful with overhanging grape vines and a pink rod iron gate. There are nooks and crannies and seating in the shade with a fountain and lots of interesting pottery and glass hangings on the fence and in the trees.

I'll post the pics of Joe, the winery owner, and of us at the tasting later today. For some reason, blogspot is only letting me post 5 pics per post. We did manage to buy a case of assorted wines amongst ourselves, some tee shirts and some wine labels for our scrapbook pages. (Winery part II b to follow later today).

What a great weekend you describe! The winery looks very pretty. Will they let you go back again?
