Vineyard

The vineyard adjacent to Klipsun Cottage in Benton City, WA. The bunches of grapes were amazing! The Vineyard seemed to stretch as far as the eye could see up this hill next to the house. There are dirt, service roads for access. Decades ago you had to travel to the three California counties to tour vineyards ( Napa, Sonoma and Mendicino), now Washington and other areas of the NW have quite a wine industry of their own and have become a destination.

Views from Klipsun Cottage

The Mothership docked along Klipsun Cottage in Benton City, WA. I probably should have done some sort of Panorama-type image of the hills on the other side of the valley, but…… you can use your visual copy and paste skills and maybe put something together?

I wouldn’t call this house a cottage, but I guess it works as a marketing strategy.

Reading Material on the Road

In the cockpit: When I’m not piloting the Mothership I usually shirk my duties as navigator and have my camera poised for something interesting. There can be long moments between using the camera and waiting for something of interest to appear. There seems to be no shortage of reading material on the road. The only thing this trailer is missing is the “How’s my Driving” sticker.

Leaving Seattle

Over the Cascade Range and into Wenatchee, WA. Headed towards Benton City, our first stop on the way to Weiser, ID. A longtime friend of our son in law has a ‘cottage’ on the land that is a vineyard, which his family owned till last year when they sold and retired. Mark’s friend, Alex, decided to buy the two cottages adjacent to the vineyard to live in and rent out. Amazing place, as you will see in following posts.

We followed this older ‘ship’ for a few miles on I90. On the back is the words: El Apartamento’. You never know what you are going to see on road trips. The cloud formations were interesting throughout the voyage.

Enjoy and safe travels.
