About a month ago I took a trip back home to Walla Walla to visit family. We are big planners so the weekend was fully packed!
On the agenda starting Saturday 4:30 AM –
-Drive to Walla Walla
-Arrive just in time for breakfast with the fam at one of my favorite cafes Bacon & Eggs (Cinnamon Roll for the table, Smoked Salmon Benedict, and Coffee)
-Farmer’s Market walk
-Checked out the Museum of Un-Natural History – AMAZINGLY cool weird items!
-Relaxed at home on the back porch
-Wine tasted at Tranche
-Then at Bontzu Cellars
-Dinner at grandma Maca’s house
-Enjoyed coffee outside with my Dad on the back porch
-Walked the grounds of a “new upscale hotel” in the middle of nowhere (definitely farmland, a true getaway)
-A late lunch at grandma’s house outside of course, I live for the sun!
The farmer’s market was peaceful to walk around on a Saturday morning with live music. I saw the cutest flower cart (or truck). We then talked with local coffee brewers, beer brewers, and sampled fresh produce. I saw the most beautiful rainbow swiss chard and other veggies and fresh bright red currants.
Next we stopped by the Museum of Un-Natural History! They’re only open on Saturdays from 9 AM – 2 PM, free to the public and ran by an 90 year old man who has collected all these items throughout his life. The museum has a Beetlejuice feel and packed with all sorts of weird artifacts. Check out these photos!
A great way to wrap up the day – Tranche Winery was one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve had. You drive for awhile through vineyards to get to the winery location, surrounded by greenery. Once you’re at the building, you walk into a beautiful bright, white space. As the servers take you through the wine tasting selection, they are calm and at peace. We then sat on their gorgeous covered patio full of table, chairs, and couches – made to have people stay awhile and enjoy a great bottle of wine. I will definitely be going back with a picnic in hand and purchasing a bottle of wine to share!
