It's Awww Monday! September 21, 2015

Our Awesome Day...
Yesterday we drove up to Jacksonville   
which is close to Ashland Oregon.
I had signed us up for an afternoon
of wine tasting. Here are a few photos:
There were several Trolley buses
that shuttled us from winery to winery....
The Daisy Creek winery was especially
pleasant with a grape arbor and lamas
nearby. They raise the lamas for
the wool and I bet the fertilizer helps
grow all the luscious grapes.

This lama was especially friendly as
I was feeding him fallen apples
from their orchard.
There were also oodles of different butterflies.
After touring 5 wineries we opted
to get a bite to eat at Deja Vu .
Fred insisted on joining us....
Needless to say we had to tuck him
into bed once we got to our B and B!
We stayed at The Bybee Historic Inn .
It was only a little bit out of town and
was a beautiful place to stay. It was
incredibly gorgeous and was built in 1857.
Two years before Oregon became a state! 
Check out below for more Awww Mondays
and don't forget
to thank Sandee of Comedy Plus!


  1. Wow, that bed and breakfast has been around for a while.
