My husband is from Colorado. I’ve learned this means he’s happiest in the mountains.
I’m from surreal America (aka southeastern Washington). This means I am happiest where there’s no rain.
He went to what was at the time the #1 party school in the US. I am Catholic. This means we both enjoy our beer.
And we just had a fantastic weekend where all these things came together.
The husband had to speak at a conference in Bend, Or. It’s about 3 1/2 hours from Portland, in central Oregon. It’s classified as being high desert, but it’s also less than a half hour to Mt Bachelor. And it’s home to the largest brewery in Oregon.
It was the things we love, managing to come together in one place.
And to top it off, we had delicious food too.
The flatbread is half eaten because we were too excited and started eating befre I took a picture. Whoops.
And of course delicious pitas.
So full. So good.
Then we went to 10 Barrle Brewing for a drink. It was dark and packed with people, so just imagine this
With the window open, full of people. Very fun.
Up next: more beer, Oktoberfest, and Mirror Pond (yup, just like the beer!). But for now I need to go do some laundry. Leaving town = messy house.
What would your ideal town have?
Bend seriously just may be our ideal.
