the harvest party

I attended the Wolffer Estate Vineyard Harvest Party
on Sunday.
Each fall, I look forward to this event.
To me, it's the quintessential fall experience.

In fact, the Harvest Party is so wonderful,
that a few years ago
the Today Show filmed a segment on it.
L & C participated 
and of course, loved it!

(I loved going in the Green Room
at NBC with Hilary Swank
& Kevin Bacon!)

 I also loved meeting Meredith.

 The Harvest Party always brings good weather
and this year was no exception.
The sun was bright, the sky Hampton blue,
and it felt more like summer 
than a crisp fall day.

all afternoon.
They were the perfect band
for this event -
providing a great mix of classic rock,
folk, blues, and reggae.

The food stations were mouth-watering.

And everyone gathered -
food, wine, and friends
on long picnic tables.

The Derby's
Jump Off was the first event
and it was pure pleasure to watch the riders.

The winners!

Watching the Barrel Rolling was great fun!
(Even if John didn't retain his championship...)

We spent the afternoon with
good friends.

Jenn & Geoff
Kerry & Mike walked over after riding.

Jenn & Babi
As always, having fun!

And as the sun began to set,
we gathered on the terrace
for the last few minutes 
of good conversation
until we meet again.

So long, Wolffer.
I hope to be back soon!
