Old Dudes Retirement trip

June 25…Wally’s last day of wearing the Intel suit (khakis and a polo shirt) rolled by in a blur as we rushed around frantically getting the Roadhouse ready for its first trip which also coincided with Wally’s birthday. Our destination was the Columbia Sun RV Resort in Kennewick Washington.

I am guessing many of you are wondering…why the heck Kennewick? Well, 37 wineries in 37 miles, golfing, bicycle trails, farmers markets, Walla Walla winery’s only 60 minutes away….are you getting the picture??? Okay, we have some great friends who offered to host a party at their place on Canyon Lakes Golf Course for the old retired dude. PLUS if that wasn’t enough reasons, it was a really easy drive from Portland in the Roadhouse…except the wind. But that’s another story!

The resort was beautiful and a some friends had the site all decorated when we got there.

We had a wonderful weekend with friends, visited some great winery’s and feasted on amazing food provided by Chef Steve and his dessert chef Leslie.

We did manage to squeeze a trip over to Walla Walla to visit some winery’s and of course we had to go to Wally’s favorite haunt from college, The Ice-Berg. Best burger , fries and shakes ever…ate so much we practically couldn’t even taste wine. Don’t worry we did make it to Isenhower, Beresan, Balboa and Basel Cellars.
