day trip

Hello all, This week I am on vacation. Tomorrow I am heading to Seattle for a couple days. Yesterday I went on a day trip with a friend. We drove up to the Maryhill Museum in Washington. It was a beautiful drive and I got to see some country I have never seen before.

Here are some highlights of some of the things we saw; some very aggressive squirrels who seemed ready to jump on us if we indicated we were carrying (food), huge wind turbines we got very close to, lush green land, big buttes, vineyards, a replica of Stonehenge (perhaps not to scale, but close), a darling old lady who gave us directions in a very small town we drove through, gorgeous views of the Columbia Gorge and a museum filled with a very strange mix of exhibits. We ended it all with a late lunch at Tad's Chicken and Dumplings on the old Columbia Highway.

Here are a couple images. A few more here. Hope you are all having a good week!

That place looks neat! Glad you had a good time. I'll need to visit that place sometime. Had no idea it existed.

Those photos are gorgeous. I love Washington so much!

(P.S. I tagged you in a meme on my blog if you do those kinds of things.)
