On our last visit to Wintergreen, Virginia, we made a stop at Pollak Vineyards for a tasting. Then, we went to Veritas Vineyards and returned to Pollak Vineyards for a bottle of wine on the lawn while we watched a live band! We loved this vineyard for its views and its wonderful staff.

On our recent trip to California, we made a stop at Paradise Cove in Malibu. A great place to lay on the beach, have a good meal and enjoy some fun tropical drinks! Check out this quick video of the beach and the making of our favorite drink there!

For those of you on Lake Tillery or Badin Lake near Albemarle, NC, you may be familiar with the pontoon boat that delivers home-made ice cream to children and adults alike while they're enjoying a day on the water. We are all in luck, because Simply Scrumptious is now open at a small shop on Pee Dee Avenue in Albemarle!

Find the Simply Scrumptious menu on their website. My personal favorite is the Peppermint Pattie ice cream sandwich but everything I've tried has been wonderful! Stop by soon for a taste of summer on Pee Dee Avenue!
