....I'm not sure who took down the 'SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE, DO NOT BACK UP' sign, but it was obvious to Rich and I that it should be put back on the pole, so I did just that. I took down the one sign which was still there and then remounted them back to back with a piece of wood on one end to act as a spacer.....came out pretty nice.....
After I finished reinstalling the sign I moved over to the supply building to continue the reorganizing I had begun a couple of weeks ago when it was raining. There is an air conditioning unit in that building so it was the perfect place to work on a very hot day. By the time 2 pm rolled around the heat was beginning to overcome the small window A/C unit. I picked up TLE from the office and we headed for the Newell.
There are reported to be 40 wineries in the Ramona area, and one of them, Ramona Ranch Winery (Yelp gives them 4.5 stars on 33 reviews) is just a mile down the road from RORVR. They only do wine tasting on the weekends, and we had meant to visit them after work on a Sunday since we first arrived, so I took a quick shower, got dressed and we headed down the road arriving at the winery about 2:40 pm.
They have this lovely covered patio area just off the tasting room where we headed after tasting 4 of their wines. We settled on their Savignon Blanc (2017) to sip while we sat outside. They charge $2.00 per tasting, and a glass is $8.00. Even though it was 97° F the steady breeze we encountered, plus the very low humidity made it quite pleasant....
.....by 4 pm we had consumed two glasses of their Savignon Blanc and it was time to head home for a nap. Next time we go we will take some snacks to enjoy with the wine, and spent a little more time. This winery and the patio setting was a very pleasant surprise!
We spent the evening watching recorded FIFA Womens World Cup matches. We were finally able to turn off our A/C units around 8 pm when the temp got back into the 70's once again. That's the first time we've run our A/C since the first day we arrived at RORVR, and I am sure it will not be the last!
Thanks for stopping by!
