Elephants and Wine

On Saturday, a friend of ours invited us to attend the Elephant Grape Stomp: An Afternoon In TUSKany at the PAWS Wildlife Sanctuary in San Andreas.  She works there taking care of the elephants.   There are just a few times a year that visitors are allowed to come to the sanctuary.  This sanctuary houses lions, tigers and bears…and elephants.   

 All these animals have been rescued from various zoos, circuses, and other places. The employees and volunteers were on hand to give us the history of each animal as well as information on the species in general.

Many of the local area wineries were also at the event offering tastings. It was a great day!
