Caches, Cemeteries, and Catses
Off with Ms. B. to Stonefield Cellars Winery in Stokesdale this afternoon, where both the wine and their resident cat make for quite the attraction. On the way over, we stopped for a couple of caches, then paid a visit to the Old Union Cemetery, off Harrell Road, where veterans of both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars are buried—which I had discovered quite some time ago on a caching outing. The graveyard is set back in the woods a ways, and the stones are so ancient that most are completely illegible. A scenic and very tranquil little historical spot.
Noah, the Stonefield Cellars Winery mascot, is a beautiful Bengal cat, with a very sweet temperament. I want one. And their wine is superb. Afterward, there was a new cache in Eden, so we detoured over to give it quick hunt. Ran into fellow cachers, Team Collab, and shared first-to-find honors with them. Yay.
