    What a fun getaway! Hubby and I love that area – Maryhill is our favorite winery, and we’ve stayed in White Salmon, Hood River and The Dalles. We should stop in at Syncline the next time we get down that way, it looks like fun. It was so nice to have good weather over the holiday, wasn’t it?

    Off topic, I have a great book to recommend – Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. I had read some of his YA Alex Ryder series years ago, but this one is a great adult mystery in a mystery. It had me guessing until the end and I already have 2 people I’m going to buy copies for 🙂

    Enjoy your short week after the holiday!

      It was a fabulous little getaway weekend! We had so much fun. We didn’t make it to Maryhill, but I had intended on trying to! I haven’t been to Maryhill in years. I think the last time I was there I saw Crosby Stills & Nash in concert there.

      Thanks for the book recommendation. It sounds familiar. I think I read the first book in the series, but I’ll have to double check.

    It must have been very fun weekend. There is nothing better than spending time with the people you love, running away from everything if even just for a while!
