Anybody thirsty? I don't drink myself, but I know many people don't think it is a picnic without beer.

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   White Wine
White Wine
We enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Lava, the restaurant connected to the Blue Lagoon. The late setting light outside made the restaurant's massive windows
bright; they in turn created great reflections on the surface of my wine in the glass, and lit the carafe behind. So I had to make a picture!

I know beer is more traditional, but, well, I don't like beer, so here's a really nice chilled white to go with that fish.

  The cyber picnik was so fun! The company was great, the food was awesome, the beer was cold, the wine nicely chilled, the Canon vs Nikon game went in to extra innings, and our surroundings were lovely. Overall it was a great time and thanks to Melinda for hosting and a special shout out to Bob for picking up the empties! LOL....where we meeting next?
