I’m back! We had a fun trip, the first pictures are from the Orchids, the others are from the Vineyard and the Sound. Enjoy!
Martin’s Orchard & Vineyard, Knotts Island NC
This is where we picked peaches. We didn’t go to this particular Vineyard, we wanted to go to Moonrise Bay. The weather turned out to be great it was around 80 degrees and mostly cloudy.
All I can say is there were peaches EVERYWHERE! We had a good time picking them, they taste great. In fact we ate a couple while we were picking them.
I love this picture! Tim and I brought a picnic lunch with us, we sat down right in the middle of the orchids to eat.
There were apple trees galore at the orchids. This is a Gala Apple tree and they were already ripe, they had every kind that you can think of. Most of them will not be ripe for about another month though.
We tasted several different kinds of wine while we were at the vineyard. Our favorite one was a raspberry flavor. We bought a bottle of it and a bottle of blueberry wine.

This is a picture of behind the counter where the wine tasting is held.
Barrels for tables and a cow skin rug, how rustic.
We stopped on the side of the road because I wanted some of these cat tails, Tim picked a bunch of them for me.
