Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Sheep and Wool Festival, Fall Color, Harvest Distillery

Oh, yes, we had a very busy day and it wasn't all about chocolate this time. Though, at the Sheep and Wool Festival, Kim did get an Aztec hot chocolate. I got a soy latte. Mores the pity. The Aztec hot chocolate was pretty good. Taste Buds was a decent coffee and dessert venue.

We went to the amazing Sheep and Wool Festival, for Kim's photos go to Inn&Around. These are the highlights. We saw a lot of Sheep and Alpacas and Llamas, as well as some goats.

We also saw a lot of sheep.

I have a ton of pictures on Facebook. So, follow me on Facebook and you'll be able to see them all.

One of the highlights was the sheep shearing. Here's a sample video.

I hope that that works on Blogspot. It may not.

We also went to Golden Harvest Farms and the Harvest Distillery where they make wonderful Rare Pear Brandy, very expensive but worth every drop, as well as very nice Apple Jack, pretty good grappa, and a wild apple vodka, Core Vodka.

I tasted all of their products. The Grappa was good. The Apple Brandy, zero years old, was harsh but nice, the Pear Brandy reminded me of zero aged Scotch and I bought the very beautiful Core Vodka, made from apples, the Apple Jack, aged 1 year. I already have the Rare Pear, aged 2 years. Wonderful.

On the way back, we were treated to a wonderful fall colors display.
