September 3, 2014 Cremona

A safe landing; check-in at our new favorite DC hotel, Capital Skyline; and a quick call to Walter.

We were all set for a visit to Cremona the following day. 

A couple of details. (1) Ila had fallen a few days before and was pretty bunged up. We knew nothing about this until we called Tuesday evening. 

(2) Walter had told us this would be his last year to be involved in the winery. Alas, when we arrived, he seemed as involved as ever and didn't say a word about quitting. 

James and Amanda drove down for the day! How nice to see them!

Just one of many scenes at Cremona looking at the Patuxant River from the back of the winery.

We had a nice visit with Nancy. She was very excited about the legacy she and Norman had put together. Her enthusiasm was infectious. 

James and Amanda wanted to tour around a bit and we headed back to take Walter home. Ila was feeling better - she wanted a visit. We didn't stay long, but I think it was long enough.

Later, we met James and Amanda for dinner and some good time with them.

Good first day!
