Yesterday afternoon, Lisa Costello and I went out to McMenamin's Edgefield. Located at the old Multnomah county poor farm, the place is basically an 80-acre art project, featuring architectural preservation, glass blowing, ceramics, sculpture, wild gardens, vineyards, a winery, a distillery, a hotel, a spa, about a dozen bars and almost as many restaurants ranging from casual snacks to fine dining. It was amazing. We will be going back, probably a lot.
A friend is coming to town this afternoon for a few day's visit. We all have a fajita party tomorrow afternoon on the porch of AH and tillyjane (a/k/a my mom). And it's a cool, rainy Oregon autumn.
