Off to Prosser and the Washington Wine Country last weekend, first trip in many months and it couldn’t have been more welcomed, as well as therapeutic. Then on Wednesday I spent some time on Magnolia, easily my favorite district of Seattle.
Wine O’Clock Restaurant in Prosser has been a favorite of ours for years, sadly this visit was not as stellar as anticipated, it seemed a bit tired – chalk it up to the challenges they face trying to keep up the quality during the open-then-closed uncertainty of the pandemic. Will go back though, as we all have off days.
Milbrandt Vineyards tasting room is next door to Wine O’Clock, best patio for tasting in Vintner’s Village. There were pink dogwoods all over, I do love the colors of spring.
Tricia and I discovered a new place, 7 Gables Mercantile and Farm, they just re-opened under a new owner on the first of May, a treasure trove. I even found new demitasse cups. Check out Tricia’s post for more wonderful photos from the trip.
Back home I did a bit of ink drawing with my fude pen.
Had a bowl of chowder on Wednesday at Highline at Fishermans Terminal in Seattle.
Some mountains at l’heure entre chien et loup.
It was a good week, looking forward to the next adventure. Hope you are well, vaccinated, and getting out more. I love that the CDC says we don’t have to always wear masks, easier to breath for sure. Keep traveling and sketching.
BTW the mystery location for the sketch I posted a couple of weeks is Hogland House in Mukilteo.

Hey Terry! I’ve been thinking about you 🙂 Are you doing any classes… anywhere? Let me know if and when and I will see if I can get a group of us together. Blessings! Katie Standley
Always nice to be thought of, thanks. No classes at the moment, not sure about the future. Of course took quite a break for 2020, and pondering if I want to start up again and if so when. Hope all is well with you.
Yay for the vaccine!! I’m so glad you are starting to travel again. Your weekend sounds like it was as wonderful as your sketches. Thank you for sharing this…
Thank you for always being so supportive
