Walked Five Miles, Tasted Wine, And Had Dinner With Friends!

Paul hit the trail a little early today and did the walk around our local community. It took an hour and forty-five minutes and 10,500 steps but he made it!  Good for the ticker! See some snapshots!

This is what file miles looks like!

Upon return, we did some chores before heading to Newport Harbor Elks for an afternoon of wine tasting!   The wine tasting is for charity, as most Elks events are.  We bought a case of various wines and had a great time with Nita, Bob and Donna, and Will and Iris.  Great fun, please join us!

Fun fun fun

Our kids were out and about also… Amy and son Joe and the little ones were at Disneyland.  We got this text picture. Looking good!

At 4:30 we went over to the The Winery in Newport Beach and had a great dinner!  Craig and Marianne joined our group for dinner.  Paul tried the Organic Turner New Zealand Venison and it was outstanding!  Donna, Bob, and Paul killed off two bottles of an excellent wine!

It was an elegant setting... We really had a great time

We headed home to do the treadmill and the sun gave us a nice surprise!  It stayed beautiful for almost 15 minutes as we got off the freeway and made it home.

It was a magnificent sunset!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
