Just a couple of jackasses in wine country!

Tiny adventures in Spain:  Today's tiny adventure would be a union of jackasses in wine country.

Most who know me might describe me as being a giant jackass.  I'd like to think that those same folks would go as far as describing me as their all-time favorite jackass, but the title nonetheless remains the same.  Total jackass!  

Today, I would find a few other actual donkeys on my daily walk in the wooded vineyards.  You see I was becoming quite the expert on getting my students to reveal the secrets of wine country during my lessons.  I would love getting them talking about their favorite things, places, walks, restaurants, etc.  During a recent class, one of my students revealed that she loved running in the vineyards.  Now, hold on just a minute!  Running in the vineyards? Where the heck was there enough vineyard to run?  I had discovered my fair share of short little walks lined with grapevines in this place, but sprawling vineyards?  I thought that I needed a car to see such things.  

Well, who was the jackass now?  I believe you know that I was implying, it was yours truly again!   My students had informed me of a lake that people walked around that came surrounded by sprawling vineyards.  Now, for someone that while trying to retain the title of Indian Jones of wine country, I was falling a bit short not having not found this bespoken treasure.  So, I was on the hunt again!  Today I would wind through that amazing cemetery I had discovered the week prior, and then I found myself crossing over what seemed to be a busy road leading to a dead-end.  But was it a dead-end?  

Of course not people!  It was the beginning of discovery, yet again!  However, today, it would not be the lake that I discovered (although it was so close I could taste it).  Instead, I would find a couple of real jackasses that called an upper wooded trail in this vineyard home.  As I walked by them, I found myself waving to them and then giggling at my assinine behavior.  In the end, it seemed it was the title of jackass that stuck to me like glue even through my attempts to replace it with a much cooler title of the Indiana Jones of wine country.
