We had a good week up in Seattle last week; Joel attended the annual TESOL conference and I hung out, met up with friends, and shopped for goodies. The weather was dreary and freezing, and this was the first time it’s really struck me that Northern CA really IS warmer, if only incrementally.
Before driving up to Seattle, we stopped in Ashland, Oregon (home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival) for a two-day mini vacation. Folks: Ashland is BEAUTIFUL. Seriously. The weather was abnormally perfect. We stayed in the most beautifully renovated B&B I’ve ever seen, the Ashland Mountain House, and saw a really wonderful rendition of “As You Like It” as well. Here are some pictures:
Our trip to Weisinger Winery. We tasted all their wines and came away with a bottle of their 2004 Gewurtztraminer – highly floral (rose) topnotes, would go well with Thai food .in love with the bathroom (a 6′ long clawfoot tub!)
