Berry picking without the berries

A trip just south of here brought us to tiny Raphine, VA. Since the name "Raphine" is derived from the Greek for "to sew", it's fitting that we stopped at the Orchardside Yarn Shop. Since shopping for knitting yarn is not an activity that appeals to my male counterpart, it's fortunate that this aptly-named shop is part of a larger orchard. We tromped around in the January snow and pretended it was summer.

Other things to visit in Raphine include (and may actually be limited to) alpacas, wine, and flour.
