    Starry Nights @ Veritas Winery & Vineyard
    July 14, 2007
    Afton, Virginia

    Talk about a crowd! Andrew and Patricia know how to throw a bash. This past Saturday night at Veritas Winery & Vineyard , the crowd of at least a thousand rocked to the tunes of The Beatles by the The AbbeyRoad Band . The weather cooperated and the food, excellent!

    Crowd toast
    The night started with a toast from the crowd to the band.

    AbbeyRoad plays
    AbbeyRoad dressed to a T entertained the crowd way into the night.

    Jag Couple
    A huge display of foreign cars were on hand as part of the English theme. A perfect backdrop for sipping a little wine! We kept looking for Bond, James Bond.

    Ed Rust
    Now here’s a couple that can tell you all about England! No surprise Ed Rust and his wife made this one!

    Kids nets
    It’s not just about wine & song, it’s about the hunt … for bugs! Just ask these kids.

    And the catch!

    Yvette & Jan
    Yep, Yvette kicked back for a bit between pictures too! And for a change Jan Smith of Heards was actually able to enjoy a performance rather than being the performance! Jeff was there somewhere, just not in this shot!
