Today's Visit to the CornerStone Gardens






Today my brother and sister-in-law met us (my husband, Jim, and my daughter, Kristina) for wine tasting at Gloria Ferrer Champagne Caves. We didn't tour the caves but we sat on the huge veranda overlooking the valley and toasted them for their twenty-eighth wedding anniversary. Then we crossed the road to see the gardens and shops at CornerStone Gardens. It was really windy, which was great in the kinetic sculpture garden. These giant sculptures were spinning around in the wind and looked like they were dancing. A wedding was being set up near the water lily pond. The shops were great fun. The mermaids were still there (see my last post) but I seemed to remember their price being $160 last October and now they were $250 each. They weren't singing my song so they continue to live at CornerStone.

We all had a really great time today.
