Did you know that all of the wineries in the Coshocton area are closed on Sunday? All of them but Raven’s Glenn. They were open 11-4 so Don & I headed that direction after lunch excited to do some wine tasting 🙂
When we arrived the tasting counter was full of people so we spent some time checking out some of the cool & unusual things in the gift shop.
Excited to try all of the different wines and noticing that the counter was still CROWDED I started to whine a bit so Don yelled for me to come over, told me to behave myself and pointed to this
Then he noticed that the taste testing counter was empty! WooHoo ~ now I was really pumped!
For $2 you could pick a category and try all the wines in that list. Don started with the semi-sweet wines ranging in price from $10-14 per bottle. I went right to the high dollar wines starting with the $33 wine and ending with the $18 bottles. I was hell bent on getting my $2 worth!! haha. A few more people came up to the counter and started tasting & commenting on the variety of wines. A fun time filled with lots of laughter and group therapy! lol
8 glasses (well more like swallows) later, we decided on purchasing 4 bottles of the semi-sweet (yes, I was helping taste test Don’s too) and 2 bottles of the Vitner’s Reserve wine (grapes grown on site) They gave us the carry bag and even let us keep the glasses!
On the way out I saw this and thought of my youngest daughter Jaci. She just LOVES wine and she LOVES shoes. Made me laugh cuz it fit her personality to a tee!
As we stepped out onto the porch all that wine just sorta “hit me” and I noticed a row of rocking chairs close by. I told Don that maybe I needed to sit for a bit. He just shook his head, called me a lightweight and took a seat. I reminded him that we were in this situation cuz he kept telling me how good his semi-sweets were and made me try them. Next time I’m sure he won’t do that!
Once my eyes focused I noticed that directly across the street were some fun and unusual shops. Next stop, the Unusual Junction!
With some odd-looking signs and unusual set-ups! hahaha
And what is up with this?
And as soon as we entered the store we saw this sign
The place was a money pit with tons of tourists stopping to buy strange trinkets complete with a diner.
We decided to see if we could get into the trains. All the doors were locked but that didn’t stop Don from trying them all! LOL
Had enough of this Unusual Junction but couldn’t leave without getting a pic of Don sticking his head through this! hahaha
We then headed off to go “glamping” ~ that’s glamorous camping for those not familiar with the term. I don’t do tents or campers however I will do a fully furnished cabin.
So we headed off to find our “home in the woods” in Fresno OH
10 minutes later we found the driveway and the sign
And then saw this!
But there’s way too many pictures and stories to tell so you’ll have to check back tomorrow. Time for me to get ready for my 6PM CrossFit class!
