A beautiful morning for hiking. This was our view as we stepped out of the van.

Checking His Melons
This was a hike through acres of farmland which included melons, grapes and almonds.

Farmer in the Field
This farmer was kind enough to stop and pose for a photo.

Doesn't That Look Yummy!
Our guide, Sebastiano, plucks a fresh melon from the vine to give us all a taste. I'm not a great fan of any melon, but I have to admit, this one was good.

Sweet and Fresh
Jim is enjoying a fresh melon right out of the field…doesn't get much better!
Onward We March
Our hike continues through the grapes as we hike towards our destination…lunch!
Fresh from the Earth
These grapes were just harvested and placed on the truck right before our eyes. Aren't they beautiful! Tons and tons of them ready for the table.

Deb is probably thinking it's better than a day at work. ;-)
On an Everlasting Honeymoon.
I don't think I ever saw Ted and Reggie without smiles on their faces.

Deb always seemed to be at home where she was.
