A bit of typical McMenamin’s kitsch/hippy/history, staying in the William T Newby room at Hotel Oregon. “He was a man of strong and vigorous mind, indomitable energy and perseverance.”

Lovely view at Anne Amie Vineyard
All wineries should be required to provide their guests with hammocks. Kudos to Anne Amie vineyards.
