Travel has opened up enough to allow us to reschedule our Oregon wine country trip that was canceled earlier in the year.
Leaving San Diego, the airport was pretty empty. The only shop open was a coffee shop and everyone was wearing masks. We flew on a brand new Embraer E75 which has 2+2 seating. Couples and families occupied the same side but others were had empty seats next to them.
Once in Portland, we headed south to McMinnville, our base camp for the trip. We stayed at a renovated old building that was very nice. About half of the business still looked to be closed. The restaurants that were open were doing pretty good business and were glad to have customers.
Over the next 3 days, we visited many wineries. I overdid the tasting the first day but remembered to use the spit bucket later.
