Bottles of Sugarcane Syrup
On our way to the east coast last February, we stopped at the Ortona Cane Grinding Festival, for Louis to buy the syrup. The festival was held at the Ortona Indian Mound Park (NYTimes article about the archeological discoveries at this mound), and it was all things delightful: a cool, clear day, barbecued chicken and ribs cooked outdoors, and bluegrass music under the large live oaks.

The photo of these bottles of amber sugar cane syrup remind me of that perfectly lovely winter day with so many people I dearly love.
