This morning Rich and I headed over to McMinnville, OR to the Evergreen Air & Space Museum. The drive took us through some small towns where we saw signs for pick your own kiwi fruit, fields of blueberry bushes, signs for hazelnuts and lots of wineries. I would love to have had time to explore some of the farms but we were there to see this...
I can't get a picture of the whole this because it is so massive. Howard Hugh's Spruce Goose. Amazing!!!
This is one amazing museum. Their collection is fabulous and they are always changing things.
They have an IMAX theater and also a space exhibit building.
Here are some helicopters.
Needless to say, we were here all day. Rich had a great time. The weather was perfect so I sat outside and did some stitching on this guy...
I think he will be my ornament for the Christmas All Year Long SAL. This month the theme is snowman. I hope that I don't lose the buttons.
Speaking of weather, I can't believe how perfect it has been. Clear and beautiful. It is such a pleasure to be outside, there seems to be no humidity and no bugs pestering you.
After the museum we headed to downtown McMinnville and had dinner at a rooftop bar on top of the Oregon Hotel.
On the drive back to Portland we saw the biggest harvest moon that I think I have ever seen. It was incredible. I love fall.
Have a great night, I am off to bed! Big plans tomorrow!
