As many of you know my Hubby and I recently took a road trip to visit a few places in Southern Oregon. One of the places we stay was Ashland, Oregon. It is truly a beautiful little town and in a lovely location nestled in the foothills of the Siskiyou and Cascade Mountain Ranges. We had been there once before, briefly, stopped to have dinner while on a road trip to California. We promised ourselves a return trip, so four years later here we are. The weather was perfect, the first real Summer days we have experienced this year, it was long over due. :)

Our primary reason for staying in Ashland was to go to a play at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival
For years people have told me how wonderful the Festival is but being a bit of a theatre snob, thinking that nothing in a back water in Oregon could come close to my precious West End I made excuses not to make the 5 hours drive to Ashland. But I couldn't have been more wrong. We went to see "The Merchant of Venice" on the Elizabethan Stage. It is an open air venue and as the sun set it truly became a magical experience. I was completely captivated by it all. I now can't wait to go back and see more.
Have a Magical Day :)
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
P.S. Don't die of shock people, no photos by me (He! He!)
