I think a mention of wine and beer is in order to celebrate my son’s college graduation, which I’ll have to write about later. At the time of this posting, before family arrives, we have plans to drive to visit a vineyard on our way to Charlottesville, VA, which happens to make some of my favorite, flavorful, full-bodied, wine, at Pearmund. I hope we’re able to get there. Regardless, I imagine that there will be a lot of drinking this weekend with cocktail parties and toasts to celebrate the big occasion. I am of course writing this before the fact, since there will be no time this weekend or the week before.
Here’s a wonderful tromp l’oeil, beer-cellar mural with oak barrels that could fool anyone for underfoot cellar storage. The mural was painted by Marc Spijkerbosch at Queenstown Holiday Park in New Zealand.
