Postcard from Lebanon, a moveable feast
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans. ~ Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
(Entrance way, Chateau Ksara, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. We will enjoy the crisp taste of their wine here, soon. For now, a glimpse of the glittering vineyard.)

Great photos from your past posts section.
That time went by fast, I bet you could have easily spent a month over there.
But good to be back!
Thank you Maureen for taking me on this wonderful journey that I have yet to make but hope to do one day!
Totally agree with Diane!!
Diane, maybe we can go together!!
One of our favorite wines is Chateau Musar. Once in a while we splurge on a bottle of one of their better wines, but the reasonable priced Chateau Musar Jeune is a staple in our household. Matches well with so many different foods.
Wonderful. I like the idea of the Musar Jeune as a staple at home!! Delicious. Thank you for writing, Adele!
