My Story, Yours Too.

Ashland Aesthetics

My Dears,
   I needed a getaway. So when I learned that Ashland, Oregon is only 3.5 hours away, it became my destination. 
   Ashland hosts an annual Shakespeare Festival. Well, it did until COVID hit. I'd heard it was a great place. I'm glad, too, that it wasn't swarmed with people there for the Festival. 
   Folks in Ashland very courteously wear masks, even when walking down the streets. They're friendly and nice. Buildings and benches are tagged with the four-letter word, "love." (Imagine gangsters deciding to tag public property with "love.") 
 
   On my way home, I caught these white beauties out of the corner of my eye. I'd keep driving, though. Wait, no, I gotta turn around! A few minutes later, I pulled into a bike lane. Camera-phone in hand, I rolled down my window. No, that won't do. I got out of my car, walked closely to these glorious creatures, and took a handful of photos. 
 
   Here's the most exquisite scene I've ever captured, plus a few more:
 


 

Dining by a fire-pit.
Note the man's fingers in my hair. A little creepy, but I didn't mind. (Downtown sculpture).






Green, green, green.

  1. Love that shot of those gorgeous white horses! I envy you your little getaway, Robyn! I'm feeling SO housebound right now. I think it's because Spring is finally getting here in Edmonton. Guess I've got Spring Fever! Or something like that.

  2. Hooray for getaways - and for sharing them with less courageous more stuck people.

    1. I'm sorry that you're more stuck, EC. I won't agree you're less courageous, though.

    1. It's silly of me, Janie. I've been here 10 years, and this was the first time I drove into OR. It's not so far but far nicer in many ways.
      Love.

    1. Oh no, Mike. The third must've been camera shy.

  9. I love the horse photos, beautiful animals. If you're into Shakespeare, I recommend Cedar City, UT where there is a top notch Shakespeare festival every summer and a short fall season. There used to be a neat summer festival at Sand Harbor on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe (it may still be going). I remember sitting on a blanket in the sand watching "Midsummer Night's Dream" but that was in the 80s.

    1. I'm not that into Shakespeare as to visit UT, Jeff. Yeah, it's very fun catching those Shakespearean plays outdoors during the summer. I was able to do that in Oakland years ago. Thank you.
