Sisters, Bend, Ashland, Crater Lake and back to Seattle

Here are a few photos and notes that I failed to include in my previous post but thought should be included.

Syncline Winery, Lyle, Washington. I had never visited a winery so I’m glad this was my first. What a peaceful, relaxing, gorgeous setting, the wines that we tasted were superb. It was $10 a flight and the fee was waived when we purchased 2 bottles or more. Kim and I settled on the ones we liked and our fees were waived. The rest is history and we enjoyed the wines the rest of our trip. If you are visiting the area, I recommend a visit.

The last vacation home we stayed in was the 3-bedroom Meadow House at the Willow-Witt Ranch outside of Ashland, Oregon. What a priceless gem this place is. Secluded and somewhat difficult to find (but so worth it). There was fresh goats milk in the refrigerator for us (yummy). The grands enjoyed going up to the farm to help milk the goats, collect eggs, play with the farm dogs and run free. They made friends and we all got together one night at the Meadow House for dinner after which we played Uno. We laughed a whole lot. The meadow house gets it’s name honestly. It sits facing a meadow at the base of a couple of hills. The deer would feed in the early morning and at dusk. I loved watching them from the wraparound porch. A very memorable vacation.

Emigrant Lake Recreation Area, in Ashland, Oregon (we spent the day here so the kids could enjoy the slides and swim in the lake). They also offered Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking. It was a beautiful day.
Enjoying a cup of tea on the front porch of the O’Callaghan’s home in Seattle, Washington. Time to pack up my bags and head back to sweltering Mobile, Alabama. A very memorable vacation with my beautiful daughter’s family.
