Tune in Tuesday: A Soundtrack for Fun.

This weekend, my brain needed a little vacation. After staying at work until almost midnight on Friday and a 12-mile run before heading out to Richmond to get our Mini serviced, my mind was just non-stop!

My solution? Chiles Peach Orchard!

What a peach!

We’ve been a few times – for strawberries a few months ago and peaches twice last year – once just the two of us, and the other time when my mom and sis came to visit πŸ™‚

Photo fun!

We had fun wandering the rows of peaches, and picked 13 of them (randomly that amount – we were thinking about 10, but the size variety was so crazy – some small as a baseball, and one almost grapefruit sized! I am so excited, because after my success a few weeks ago of baking my first pie (cherry, mmm) I am going to attempt a peach one!

After the peach-picking, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and take a scenic drive through Nelson County – which took us to our late-lunch/early dinner spot: Wild Wolf Brewing Company.


The menu was extensive, but I just HAD to get the nachos after I saw people order them…and besides, I had to compare them to the Blue Mountain Brewery nachos, right? πŸ˜‰ Heh. Hubs ordered a pork tenderloin meal (came with mashed sweet potato and brussel sprouts) – kinda pictured above – as well as a sample flight of their beers on tap – Hunny Ale was my favorite πŸ™‚

…and speaking of HUNNY!


Yay, Black Bear Cafe at Wintergreen Resort!

Okay, so what if the cafe was closed and this photo op is really about me nearly jumping out of the car when we saw the bear statue, while hubs asks, “do you want to stop and see the bear?” MUHAHAH, yes he knows me so well…

Since we had driven all the way out there anyway, we decided to drive around the resort (had never been) and do a little walking around on the nature paths. Much to our surprise, the temperature up there was significantly cooler than in Charlottesville – about 70 to our 90! NICE!

I don’t know if it was the clearer, cooler air up there, or just the idea of getting out of town for a little bit – but I felt a lot better when we returned home πŸ™‚

And to accompany that happy feeling: a Fun. song:

How do you recharge / unplug?


  1. I love peaches and I have the best recipe for a Peach Caprese Salad, oh my it is so good.
    Every time that I am reminded that you love bears I smile… #BearSisters πŸ™‚
