Bill and I left Cathedral City yesterday. Our destination is Oregon to spend three plus weeks with my brother Keith and his wife Joanette. They are on their first post-retirement summer and have gone totally mobile.
Our plan is to spend about a week in the Willamette Valley, including a 138 mile bike trip, and then a couple of weeks on the Oregon Coast in Florence. More about that later.
Yesterday, we drove to one of our favorite California wine growing areas, Paso Robles. We are attending a weekend sponsored by Rainbow RV. The prime event for this weekend will be the 21st annual Winemaker’s Cook-off, a fund raising event by the local Rotary Club. The entry fee gets you in, and then the wine and food is all included. I’m told, far more food and wine than you could possibly consume.
Last night, the local hosts suggested that we check out, Bruce Munro’s Field of Lights at Sensorio
So, we did! Amazing, and my Iphone camera did not do it justice.
The fact that the lights are installed on slopes and in valleys added to the impact.
All solar powered.
We had a great time walking through the lights, enjoying the gentle evening breeze. Afterwards, we returned to camp. It was a long day and the nice queen bed was our next destination.
Tonight is the Cook-off.
