If you still can't guess where we are or even what state, I'll post it in a few days.There was also a car show with a lot of the classic cars motoring through the gardens. "You missed the lagoon!" One of our favorite quotes from the movie "The Private Eyes" couldn't help but come to mind as we walked through this arch which was used in the movie. But instead of the lagoon, which is quite a ways away, you walk into the old stable area where we had a wonderful lunch...and ice cream for dessert!

After lunch we toured the other 3 floors of the house, which we were not allowed to photograph. Sorry! But besides absolutely gorgeous rooms and awesome architectural details, the basement actually had a bowling alley and swimming pool! Before leaving the estate we drove past the lagoon to the winery, where we participated in a wine tasting. It was interesting and a lot of fun.

Thanks Jess and Drew for a great surprise and wonderful 34th Anniversary gift. As for it being a reward for all our hard work, it was much appreciated, but not expected as we would help just because we love you. We are so proud of you both.

What a beautiful surprise for you both! I have no idea where this is and am VERY tempted to cheat and look it up online, but I won't! :-) I'll just wait for the answer from you!
