On my Wenatchee trip, I dined at Chateau Faire La Pont Winery. I highly recommend the Rolled Chicken Washington with ham, cheese, morals and a wine sauce. Super tasty and big enough to split!

How did I not know about larch trees? So glad I got to see their fall glory before their yellow needles drop.

Yellow is one of my favorite colors and HWY 2 along Stevens Pass is dancing in gold. So beautiful! *
What is your favorite color?

I have to confess. I'm not an oyster person. But, this year I've tried oysters two ways and really liked it. The first were Willis Bay fried oysters at Bob's Chowder. The second were grilled oysters with Drayton Harbor Oysters. Do you like oysters?

Pork BBQ ribs is one of my favorite dishes, but for some reason I rarely eat them these days. I remedied that this weekend in Lincoln City at Rusty Truck Brewing. They did not disappoint.

Loving this amazing weather we've been having. It's got me thinking of my favorite scenic fall drives in Washington State. This photo is from SR 20 that goes through the North Cascades. On Friday, I'll be heading to Wenatchee, and driving along US 2. Looking forward to seeing the #fallfoliage!

I love finding hidden gems. The Connie Hansen Garden is a small oasis in Lincoln City, Oregon. Avid gardener Connie Hansen developed this garden for 20 years and after her passing the conservancy was formed to save it. It is FREE to visit and a pure delight to walk along its paths. *

My time on the Oregon Coast went by way to fast! Thankfully there are photos to bring it all back.

How do you know when your dog had a great day on the Oregon coast? When she is sleeping beside you and snoring. We are now in #lincolncityor and have plenty of more beach fun ahead of us. *
