Hello, Sunshine!

{View from the deck of the Willamette Valley Vineyards}

Being the first full weekend of sunshine in Oregon for months, the last thing I wanted to do was stay home.  I admit to constantly whining about Oregon weather, but when the sun comes out, the Oregon landscape offers breathtaking views in comparison to the smoggy skies of southern California.  I spent the day with a fellow resident exploring the beautiful wineries in the Willamette Valley and gained a greater appreciation of Northwest viticulture.  Impressively, there are about 400 wineries in the Willamette Valley alone, so I’ve barely made a dent on the list.  But, at least I know there are places I can escape to just minutes away from the busy I-5 Highway to sit, relax, and enjoy the sunshine.
