I’m home from a busy weekend, after spending last night in Seattle. We watched my brother-in-law’s band play at a little hole-in-the-wall pub a couple of hours from home. Jon and I went down a bit early to do a bit of wine tasting in Woodinville, then met Jon’s parents for the evening.
The band was good, and the venue reminded me that I’m old, and I’m terrible at staying up late. Being out until after midnight is brutal! Today we slept in, and before coming home, we visited the Seattle Art Museum and saw the Impressionist exhibit, a collection on loan from the National Gallery of Art. It was a great exhibit, and we had some time to check out other areas of the museum too.
Now, at home, I’m enjoying a glass of Raspberry Hard Apple Cider, by the Blue Mountain Cider Company, in Milton-Freewater, Oregon. If you haven’t heard of Milton-Freewater, it is right next door to Walla Walla. The Raspberry Hard Cider is a great balance of sweet and tart, with just a hint of carbonation. Delicious! If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and grab some – according to the Blue Mountain website, it is only available in the tasting room.
Cheers to the end of a great weekend!
