For those of you who might remember my June post "B&B&BEER" - this is a more unusual mix. The Miller Tree Inn in Forks WA has been designated the CULLEN HOUSE. The Cullen's are a family of vampires in the famous Twilight book series and people come from all over the world to visit for the "twilight" experience. Here is picture of the Miller Tree front porch. All the flags represent the countries that our current guests are from. If the guests are twilight fans, they also get a personal letter from the Cullen Family. It's little touches like that that make B&B's really special.
As INTERIM INNKEEPERS Kirk and I try to represent the "feeling" of each property we work at but we do have trouble being scary. Maybe we should just serve bloody marys at breakfast? HAH! Although we have not personally had any vampire experiences here, there are some mornings when the mist coming in over the medow does seem very spooky!       For more information on the Cullen's at the Miller Tree, check out thier blog

Wine Ride

There are many ways to tour the wine country of Walla Walla WA - car, bike, foot and HORSEBACK. That last way is my favorite as you can see by this photo. While working in the area, we took a little time off to do "research" and have some fun. We rode to several of our favorite wineries, tasted wine and had a great pic-nic lunch.

We also bought a few bottles to put in our saddle bags and take home. Here is a pic of Kirk and Doc at one of our favorite vineyards - VaPiano Why don't you comment and let me know what your favorite winery is?
