Walla Walla Here We Come

Dean and I are spending the night in Yakima, WA, on our way to do a wine country tour of Walla Walla, Washington. We have been told this area is the "fifth best wine-producing area in the world," a sort of Tuscany of Washington, so to speak, and we can hardly wait to see for ourselves.

We had dinner tonight at Gasperetti's in Yakima. Fantastic small town restaurant! The cocktails were smooth, the calamari with green aioli was superb, the caesar salad was yummy, and my veal chop was to die for. Dean's prawn linguini was good, not the best, but you can't have it all. Gorgeous artwork on the walls. And a very relaxing evening.

Ahh . . . looking forward to a relaxing few days off.

Walla Walla is fantastic and have the best Pinot Noir in the country after Oregon's Willamette Valley. I had some great wine when I read at Whitman College there. Some great food, too.

I played Beethoven at Whitman. And that's where Othere Voices was premiered, the 1st piece I wrote with my composer. By the way, he loved it when you approaced him at Elliott Bay and said Aren't you her composer?

R: LOL. That is so sweet! Glad I didn't say "Aren't you her _____? "
