Off We Go With The Chartier's In Hot Pursuit
Pete and Lisa stayed overnight from the July 4th celebrations and are joining us in Temecula with Jon for a while.
We had lunch at Falkner Winery and then dropped Jon off to see his great grandmother Feltz for a short visit (it's important for kids/young adults to visit their family).
Pete and Lisa left from Temecula to go home (Lisa has to work) and we headed back to Los Angeles to go to the Himalayan Grill for dinner!
Life is busy!
We Arrive At 11:45... Perfect For 12:15 Lunch Reservation
We have arrived
We were greeted by Brianna
Once we read the sign, we were careful!
Leftovers from July 4th!
They are set up for a party
It was a beautiful day!
Flags were everywhere
Bob? Donna? We see dance floor
Love their signs
We just watched "Up"...
To Pinnacle For Lunch!
Pete looks so innocent
I think we pooped him out during his visit
Paul and Lisa... Always up to something
"What do you mean there is a limit on wine?"
"M-m-m-m M-m-m-m good!"
Love the lobster mac-and-cheese
Dressed to celebrate the July 4th weekend
Best seat in the house
See you guys later!
Loading Up The Car
We had three cases to stash away
Jon checked it out and that was good!
He did not have his order!
The ladies catch up with us
Must look at the signs one more time!
"My liquid diet isn't working.... So far I've only lost 3 weeks"
Jon was getting hit on but did not realize it... She was a cutie!
Great to have a grand "child" with us to carry the wine!
Guess what Jon noticed!
Saying goodbye to Dad until next time
"Come on boys... We gotta go!"
Sue and Lisa... Bye until next time
Heading to great grandmother Juanita's for a visit
Beautiful weather... In the high 70's
Jon walked up to see his great grandmother... We tasted wine!
We Stopped Nearby At Frangipani Winery
We went to the local winery
39750 De Portola Road
Temecula, CA 92592
Up the dirt road and through the vineyards
It was nice and cool on the inside
Flags were flying
The old piano was a classic
Make a selection
Sue and the staff got along fine
Sue has a new friend... Bob, our server, offered Sue
some treats to give to the baby dog!
He is eleven years old and really a sweet baby
Him like him doggie treats
It was indeed dry but the grapes looked pretty good
Can you see them??
Juanita's place is high upon the neighboring hill
Down the road to the highway
Thornton Winery For Champagne After Picking Up Jon
The grass is sort of green
We saw the cook staff watering the herbs and flowers with
left-over kitchen water ... Excellent idea
The tomatoes were starting to ripen
One too many.... Teasing of course
We had to drive home so drinking was severly limited
We tasted white wines and two champagne flights
Jon was carrying two cases of champagne
Their fountain has a rubber duck collection!
Silly Us, We Decided To Do The Himalayan Grill For Dinner
We met up with Greg there
The sky was Red, White, and Blue! Pretty amazing!
