Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I start French lessons this afternoon and put on my walking shoes this morning.
Anyone who knows me is probably laughing right now. There have been many “new starts”. The funny part about is, you never know which new beginning will stick.
Let’s just say my first morning’s walk has already reaped benefits. It led me to a part of Uzes I’ve never explored and to an interesting “Village Scene.”
“Are they washing wine bottles?” said me to me. “That would be interesting to see.”
My curiosity was piqued and I headed down the entrance road to find out what was going on.
They weren’t washing bottles, they were bottling wine.
Apparently, when the wine is ready to store in bottles, they back a bottling truck up to the door and work from there.
…to packing the final product into shipping boxes.
…. to placing the cartons on pallets.
... with a backup
Plus wrapping the cartons tightly for shipping.
Perhaps another day I’ll return for a full tour.
