OCTOBER 23rd, 2011

It was a beautiful Sunday morning!  Scheduled departure was delayed but we were off @ 10am!

First Stop was Chateau Lafayette.  18 wines were offered!  That's the way to start!

The next stop was Hazlitt Winery, home of the famous "Red Cat" wine!   These were some friendly and profession folks!  We had lunch here and really enjoyed this stop!


Then a quick stop at Tickle Hill Winery...


and an unscheduled stop at The Rasta Ranch, very entertaining and the wine was good too!

Last Winery was Penguin Bay!

You know we needed a beer after all that wine!!  A quick pit stop at The Boat Yard in Ithaca and we were headed home!

People make the party! This group was fabulous!  Limo Bus was provided by Superior Limo, Cortland NY,  Personalized Bag Lunch by The Three Bear Inn, Marathon, NY and the customers took care of the FUN!

Thanks to all who participated!

Susan and Don (who forgot to bring his TBI T-shirt...) just came back (10/03/08) from a business/pleasure trip to Paris, France.  I included the photograph from the top of the Arc de Triumph.  We can enjoy their experience vicariously!  Isn't that exciting!!



Lynn and Tony went to the French Alps in September 2008.  They took a Gondola across to Italy for a brief (20 minutes...) stay.  Those T-Shirts look good no matter where they are!!!  Hope you guys had FUN!!




This is cousin Chris from New Jersey looking quite employable in front of the Eiffel Tower. He was in Paris  for a much deserved vacation!


Our part-time cook Mike Harvey has a brother stationed in Iraq.  You still don't want to fool around with anyone wearing the Three Bear Inn Colors!  ARRRRGH!        Daniel is a Specialist in the 4th Infantry division.  He is a M1 Tank driver.



Here is a picture of my friend Bob in front of Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, Oregon.  Haystack Rock is about 250-300 feet tall, and one of the largest monoliths on the west coast.



Here is Lyn Ryan, local Marathon resident and  traveler extraordinaire..

She has recently been to Tunica , Mississippi to visit the casinos and ride a river boat!  Sounds fun.  Did you win anything???




John Brooks visited Ireland a couple of years back and had the presents of mind to pack his TBI Shirt!

Here he is at The Blarney Castle.
