Friday favorites

During our long weekend, we joined friends for a little trip through the Willamette Valley. We stopped at one winery that was new to us, and then made a trip to the Rogue Hop farmstead. Hops, fruit trees, filbert (hazelnut to you non valley people) and various animals were there. Good food, strong beer and lovely summer weather.

This made for the perfect recipe. Wine for us, beer for the boys, and sunshine and music for all.

If anyone is ever in our neck of the woods, I highly recommend visiting some of our wineries, and of course Oregon is home of micro brew.

Wow, MaryGene these photos are incredible. I love them. And that horse one is CUTE. I see the ears back...I don't think they appreciate their picture being taken....I had many who had their ears back, also. AND, once the horse almost bucked its rider off, because I was taking pictures. :)

It looks like you had a wonderful time. :) And seriously, your pictures are beautiful.
