I usually take my camera any time I go somewhere that I think will be photogenic. Honestly, I should always take my camera every time I step out the door. My business and career revolves around caring a camera so sometimes it’s a needed break to not lug the heavy equipment and just rely on my iPhone. If you’d like to see more photos visit my Instagram feed.
I’ve enjoyed a few Oregon sipping locations this summer. I wanted to share a few fun spots for you to check out. If you prefer coffee, beer or wine I have a location for each for you to try out. I give all three places two thumbs up. Enjoy sipping.
Coffee: I met a friend at Torque Coffee for a latte. I always love photographing coffee cups and cute coffee shops so I enjoyed snapping away in Torque. (The lead image was also taken at Torque.) I had lunch at Sugar & Salt. The cafe is cute, friendly and of course they have tasty treats.
Wine & Beer: My husband and I went with our friends, Kevin & Bee (of SpicyBee) to Hood River. We’re both wine members at Marchesi Winery so we made a date to pick up our shipment together. We started off with lunch at Pfreim. I don’t have any photos (except on my Instagram Feed) but I wanted to mention the brewery because I really enjoyed my first visit and will definitely be back. After our Marchesi stop we drove around trying to find Cherries. We had no such luck. Cherries weren’t quite in season. So we gave up on the cherry search and found another brewery. I was thinking about not posting this next spot because I don’t want it to become so popular and crazy (so don’t tell a lot of people) but if you want a brew with a view check out Solera Brewery in Parkdale, Oregon. I enjoyed the tasting flight (I always do a taster when it’s my first time trying their brews) and seriously the view is outstanding.
