A brave new world!!
IT happened. IT really did HAPPEN!
The Fat Lady has sung. Finally, she really did SING!!
After a roller-coaster-like week, Joe Biden DID finally defeat DT!
Around 11:30 on Saturday, my brother sent a text to the group-chat us siblings (and in-laws) have.
He wrote, “WHAT is happening. Turn on CNN”.
And, I did! And THERE it WAS!!
Joe Biden is elected President. I could hardly believe it.
I admit it, I did shed tears. OF true happiness!!
America-- and the world-- is a little warmer, kinder and more human now!!
You all have seen pictures from DC, and the pure euphoria when people were celebrating outside The White House.
People were cheering all over America, and all over the world. What a DAY! I’ll never forget it!
Celebration galore! What a good day then to go visit a winery!!
To continue the celebration there! I can tell you one thing—the weather was PICTURE perfect on Saturday!! Sunny, clear blue skies and so warm, 73 F (23C).
It was like Mother Nature was smiling down on all of us.
And by that it was time for us to head west together with our dearest and nearest neighbors, Ingrid and Richard.
Yes, in separate cars of course, because Covid …
So, we drove west an hour plus from Reston to beautiful Linden, Virginia.
The winery we visited this very Saturday is called Fox Meadow Winery.
And, let me tell you, it is the prettiest winery I have ever been to.
The views are beyond gorgeous, ridge line upon ridge line facing the south and west, mmmm ….
The customer service at this place was wonderful. YES, WE EVEN got to drink from real GLASS ware. What a huge difference that makes. You all know from previous wineries I have visited during c-19 that they have stopped using real glass ware, instead they are using plastic cups. I am SO happy that this place did it differently.
We were hanging out for two hours plus.
Nowadays (during c-19) you’ll have to make reservations at many of the wineries around this area. You cannot just show up, like you could pre-c.
It is kind of a good system, you have your table reserved, they have a limited amount of people at the winery at the same time. The drawback is that you book a time slot for two hours, and then you’ll have to leave.
We would have loved to hang out for sunset, but our table was booked. One thing is for sure, I’ll return to this wonderful place. I cannot wait!!
The wine? Decent. I think Virginia is getting better and better at producing wine.
Time to head back down the mountain and drive back to Reston again ...
In the evening we watched Joe Biden and Kamala Harris deliver their victory speeches.
Beautiful, touching and unifying. Outside neighbors around the golf course celebrated with fire works! What a day for America!
For the world!
I think this will be good, really good!
