2Towns Ciderhouse was having a 50% off case special, so we bought a little cider :) They are having a grand opening of their new tasting room on September 29th. Looking forward to it :)
We went to some estate sales this weekend, and I bought a new (vintage) suitcase that I plan to use as a briefcase!
Later a friend came to visit. While we were sitting and talking in the living room, a bat flew into our house. He flew around the living room and kitchen repeatedly, unable to find his way out, until we turned off the fan, and he left.
The morning after the Dead Can Dance concert, we had a little breakfast at the motel. Rob accidentally sat back on a cream cheese covered bagel. I had to take a picture :-P We laughed so hard :-D
Once he had changed to a clean shirt, we drove to Woodinville to check out some wineries.
First we went to Chateau Ste. Michelle.
Yep, that's the direction we'll be going :)
I didn't realize that there is actually a chateau on the property.
We didn't take the tour, but we did get our picture taken with some giant fruit.
The grounds are really beautiful.
Rob got a kick out of the smoker's pole :)
Then we went across the street to Columbia Winery.
We drove home with a lot of wine. Yum!
Before the show, we explored Marymoor Park. We rode our bikes from the motel in Bellevue to the park. I thought I was going to die a couple of times because the hills were so crazy. At the park there was a windmill,
a kung-fu tree,
and a totem pole
with lots of carvings.
The musician who opened for the Dead Can Dance was from Switzerland, and he played a type of steel drum that looked like a flying saucer. It was really cool!
The Dead Can Dance were awesome. Here are some videos that can never really capture what this show was really like. People were in tears. It was amazing!
This last song is my favorite, so I videotaped the whole thing. So beautiful. I was so glad that they played it.
During the five-song encore, we took a picture of some people who were silhouetted against the red stage lights.
