Brian in Friesling

Accidentally got pulled into a great bierfest in Friesling. This is the brief moment no one was on the table.

Schwangau (Schloss Neuschwanstein):

oday we hung out at a pair of castles. Fun, but navigation when the train track broke was tricky. Relaxing now with an Austrian red wine.

A weekend with Shelley

My cousin Shelley came for a visit. She is a chef, so there were one million places I wanted her to try in Portland, but predictably only made it to a few.  

We did have a lovely lunch in our garden:

And followed that up by driving to wine country in Dundee for a few tastings. We stopped at Argyle (Shelley wanted to try their sparkling wine), Winderlea and Torii Mor. Brian and I joined the wine club at Winderlea which will encourage us to go more frequently.

Mt Jefferson in the background looks quite large from here in real life but my old phone doesn't really capture it
