I'm not going to apologize for my pitiful lack of blogging... because I'm on vacation, people, and even this cowgirl needs a break from reality.
That said, I am having a great time out here.
I am STILL brushing sand off my body from yesterday's excursion to the coast (we got sandblasted by 65 MPH winds), even though I was appropriately hosed down in the shower.
We had the most spectacular excursion to King Estate - a beautiful winery in the Willamette Valley. Our tasting host was too kind - normally only five wines are offered during the complimentary tasting, but since we were cute, deep and bubbly (we sound like a wine ourselves, right?) he padded our experience with an extra five vintages.
The lunch was dynamite - I plan on waxing poetic on my selection at a later date.
Tonight, I've got a hot date with a washer and dryer (I've heard naughty things about the spin cycle...) and then I am going to observe the happenings at Denae's TV station, Eugene's CBS affiliate, KVAL.
Tomorrow - we trek to Portland.
A couple days in to 2009, and I am so grateful for life's blessings.
