Visiting new places is my favorite. Well, traveling in general really. Earlier this week I was in Portland and little did I know but there is a lovely wine country nearby and I got to experience it first hand. Just look at those views! It was like I was uprooted and transported to some other country. We drank wine, snacked on cheeses, took in the gorgeous views, and even got in a game of girls vs boys bocce ball. We lost but I maintain that for only ever playing maybe once before, I was not the worst participant. And there was amazing local wine so could anyone really lose? Exactly.
