We are rounding the bend. (Just like in the Olympics.)
Tuesday, August 7 – some spent the hot Oregon afternoon swimming at the reservoir in Lithia Park while others spent it in shops on Main Street in Ashland. For some, Tuesday night was spent in the outdoor Elizabethan Theatre, seeing OSF’s production of As You Like It under the stars while others had a wonderful dinner with Michael Maag and Gwen Turos. (As you will remember, Michael is the Lighting Department Manager and Gwen is a Stage Manager extraordinaire here at OSF.) The report on As You Like It (from those who attended) was that it was good. “Beautiful night.” The report on the dinner with Michael and Gwen? “Beautiful night.”
Wednesday, August 8 – morning coffee in town, trip to the Rogue Valley Creamery to buy blue cheese, the chocolate shop to buy (wait for it) chocolate, and then to the Weisinger Winery to sit out on the back deck to sip wine and chat. The time at Weisinger’s ended with a lovely performance by a local wind quartet. Very nice. Dinner at Past Piatti and then more hanging out.
Storing up energy for tomorrow which will feature a theatre double-header for the Chervs (MMC matinee and The Very Merry Wives of Windsor, Iowa in the evening). Bob and Chris are also headed for the evening’s performance in the outdoor Elizabethan Theatre.
Trip is winding down, but there are still plays to see, dinners to be had, and hanging out to be done. More to come. Stay tuned.
Will try to post recent photos from the past several days.
