Summer in Ashland, Oregon

Every Summer, we head to Ashland, Oregon for the Shakespeare Festival; the highlights were The Pirates of Penzance, Measure for Measure, The Imaginary Invalid, August:  Osage County, Julius Caesar, and Ghostlight.  My favorites were Pirates, Imaginary Invalid and Osage County.

The streets are never this clear, except it you are walking to the park at 6:30am, and then stopping at Starbucks on the way back to read.

The Elizabethan Theatre, just before the pirate flag was raised for the start of "The Pirates  of Penzance."  It was fabulous, by the way, and the first musical to grace this outdoor theatre.

Here's the fam eating at "Amuse" - one of our favorite restaurants

and at Taroko, where Kat Wok used to be.  Really good sushi

The annual "serious" Scrabble game; only the brave can play, and I'm not ever going to be sitting at that table

Pelton House - where we have stayed for eight years.  It's like coming home!

  1. Always great to see your "Ashland" post every year. The Shakespeare Festival is a magical place. I think I left a little of my heart there.
