Nola Visits Peaceful Bend


Meet Nola, a Burmese Mountain Dog, who visited Peaceful Bend on Sunday. I’ve never seen this breed before, but she is so pretty and friendly. Nola is a rescue dog who was saved from a puppy mill.


What a great adoring look she is giving her owner (and that tongue is adorable too)!  Nola had a lovely visit and enjoyed attention from everyone. However, Pepe got a bit jealous of all the attention (as usual) and had to try to upstage Nola:


Well, he’s either trying to upstage her, or figure out how to jump head first into the snack cooler!

Thanks for visiting Peaceful Bend, Nola. I hope you had a great camping trip and that your owners enjoyed their Dry Creek. Cheers!

Weather and the Weekend Update


The hot, hot weather seems to be disappearing lately. We’ve had lots of clouds rolling in this past week, making for a few fabulous sunsets. Then yesterday those clouds opened up in the late afternoon and made for some rain and hail too!


Whew! 5 and 1/2 inches was reported by one friend here in Steelville. We definitely needed the rain, so I won’t complain too much about all the gravel that it washed out of our driveway.

The storm has left behind some FANTASTIC temperatures. This weekend looks to be sunny and in the low 80’s for a high temperature. Come on out and enjoy it with us here at Peaceful Bend!

I will be on the road to Moberly MO tomorrow. I’ll have a table at the Safe Passage fundraiser wine tasting at the Municipal building from 4-8pm on Saturday. If you are out and about in Moberly, come on by for wine, food, music and to support a great cause. Find out more information by calling 660-269-8111.

Looking forward to a great weekend. Cheers everyone!

Perseid Meteor Shower Over the Winery


Last Saturday I arrived back at the winery around 11pm from my tasting and dinner with Laura.  I had just enough energy left to grab my camera and give a try at capturing the Perseid meteor shower that was happening over the weekend.  I saw quite a few meteors, but unfortunately they all seemed to be somewhere other than where I had my camera pointing!

Oh well.  At least I caught a cool look at the sky and can say I watched a few of the meteors before I fell sound asleep!  Did you see any meteors last weekend?  Cheers!
