Sunny, Cold, Bainbridge

Hopped a ferry and spent the day on Bainbridge Island. We toured various artsy-craftsy places that were part of the 13th Annual Bainbridge Island Christmas in the Country (including such kitschy locals as The Christmas House), visited Island Holly Farm (where we found out the owners are going to be tearing out the holly trees after this season and turning the place into a U-Pick Blueberry farm instead), and did a wine tasting at Bainbridge Island Vineyards (which resulted in me leaving with a bottle of their delightfully aromatic dry Müller-Thurgau, their yummy late harvest Siegerrebe, and a bottle of their award-winning raspberry dessert wine). We also had lunch at the Big Star Diner and, later, the Worlds Best Lattes (as sworn by John) at the Blackbird Bakery. It was a really good day for this sort of excursion, clear and sunny and just cold enough to make it feel wintry but not unpleasant.

Photos to come later. For now my feet are cold and I'm going to attach myself to the heating pad Chris brought home to me last night.
