We have some friends visiting from Chicago, so today we took them out to some of the Willamette Valley wineries. We went to Domaine Serene, Domaine Drouhin, Maresh Red Barn, and ended the day at Erath, where we saw this large, fragrant wisteria. We had lunch at a table beneath the trellis.
My girlfriend tried to open a thick plastic container with a plastic knife. I reached into my pocket to get out a real knife, but amazingly she managed to cut through the plastic with the plastic knife. We were all impressed, and decided that her special title for this trip would be Plastic Knife Ninja.
Though swarming crowds will overrun the wine country later during Memorial Day weekend, today was fairly calm, with light traffic. It was a great sunny Oregon day.
