Barers Of Maple Valley Return From Trip


Deb and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend in Seaside Oregon. Deb's Mom was with us as we had a relaxing time walking the beaches of Gearheart, Seaside, and Cannon Beach.  Seaside, of course was a family tradition growing up, one that was easily passed on to Deb's family.  We stayed at Worldmark resort at the famous turnaround, where these pictures were taken.

Labor Day Weekend In Walla Walla III

The tasting room for Doubleback Winery,has a very unusual design.  All of the signage is inside the store, visable through the picture window.  Doubleback is the brand created by retired NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe, arguably the best athlete to come out of the region.  Bledsoe is a graduate of Walla Walla High School and Washington State University.  He helped transform the New England Patriots from one of the worst organization in professional sports into one of the best.  He is a member of the Patriots Hall Of Fame.
The tasting room is available by appointment only.  It is located at the 3 way intersection of Palouse, Boyer, and Main in Downtown Walla Walla.
