My Cherrie amor...

So much has been going on lately that Alex and I decided to take a trip to our favorite place, the San Sebastian Winery in St Augustine, to just enjoy the atmosphere and see what new wines they had in store. As always click each photo for a better view.

It was your usual wonderful Florida day filled with flowers despite the heat.

I love San Sebastian Winery because they change the tours as they introduce new wines so each trip is an adventure.

It also changes with each tour guide because different guides decide to highlight different aspects of the wine production process. This time we got Mike who was a wealth of information in addition to being a fun guy!

I say that because he seemed almost as happy to pour for the tasting as we were to drink. And later when Alex decided to buy a few new bottles, the glow of the last few drops caused me to begin singing "My Cherie Amor" to cast my vote for some of their great Sherry. Alex made his purchase and pushed me into the upstairs restaurant to get a little food and let the tasting wear off.

We later rode our bikes into St. Augusting proper and stopped by the Visitors Center, a place we have passed a million times but never entered. We found out what we had been missing was considerable.

And then Alex caught sight of this little scooter shop.

He settled on this three wheel job and we spent an hour spinning around the City with Alex returning the favor and singing "My Cherrie Amor" with each turn of a corner.

What a guy and what a day!


  1. That 3 wheel number is cute!.. Now, how was Alex's version of " My Cherrie Amor"?

  2. Sounds like you guys had a great day. I have yet to go to one of the many wineries around here. I think I would enjoy the tour. I would love to see one of the three wheeled scooters around here.

  3. Chrissy and Dan,

    The winery is always a lot of fun for us because you get the local context of wine making. The three wheel job was completely out of the blue and Alex was a madman around those corners singing at the top of his voice (slight Russian accent included)!
