Geneva-on-the-Lake

Next Monday Tami and I will be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe how fast time goes. Since we got married at the Lodge at Geneva I planned for us to head up there and stay overnight somewhere. As a surprise I booked us a room at the Warner Concord Farms B&B which we haven't stayed at before. It is located in historic Unionville (about 10-15 minutes from the lake) and is situated on 130 acres of vineyards. It turned out to be a really nice place with great hospitality. We will definitely be back here again. Here are a few photos of the place and our room...

After checking in around 2:00 we drove up to Geneva-on-the-Lake and stopped at Eddie's Grill for a bite to eat. Even though the weatherman said there wouldn't be much rain today until after dark, it had been raining off and on almost all day. Tami said that maybe if we were lucky we'd see a rainbow. Sure enough, as we were walking down the strip, out came a big one...
After a footlong hot dog and some fries we then drove over to Chalet Debonne, one of our favorite wineries, for a few drinks. They're just beginning to brew their own beer now too under the name "Cellar Rats Brewing" which is pretty cool. I tried their Rat Tail Ale. After leaving Chalet Debonne we headed back up to the lake to see "The Professors" play at the Lakehouse Inn.

A quick storm moved through and Bill and his partner were forced to move inside to finish playing. We stuck around until they were done and then headed over to the Firehouse Winery to check out their entertainment. Just like the rainbow we saw earlier in the day we were then treated to a beautiful sunset...
Today seemed to get better as it went on. Unfortunately I don't think the same can be said for this kid who had a little bit too much to drink...
