... night. This was a highlight for Cathy, completely enclosed and out of sight from prying eyes, she went bathing suitless into the hot tub (Peewee's influence?) and we soaked for a half hour before settling in to our first night in Anikin.

Our guidebook was indeed a few years old, so obviously since it was published, it isn't up there competing with the other local vineyards anymore! Well we felt pretty pleased with ourselves that we had bothered to find this place and be the sole customers for the day... and perhaps ...
