Out the Hotel Window - Charlottesvile, VA October 2012

The autumn colors are creeping into the afternoon sunlight illumined trees. The weather, although warm, is turning cooler with each passing night. The vineyards have harvested the grapes for the upcoming winemaking season and the preparation of the 2012 vintages are well underway.

It was an awesome day. I is a stop along a busy weekend that began last evening with the O's first playoff victory in over 15 years. Today was sampling wines at many of our favorite and one newly discovered vineyards.

Tomorrow a visit to Monticello and then home for a busy Sunday in the middle of a busy three day weekend.

It is becoming an annual event--doing something special on the first weekend in October. The weather is beautiful with the summer still close enough to remember and the autumn rain and chill still something that yet has not arrived.

But it will. Until then, enjoy life, drink wine, and love deeply.
