This past weekend marked the Memorial Day Weekend here in the USA. Canada celebrated Victoria Day last week with a long weekend. But I’m in the American mode now.
A fabulous brunch at Wild Huckleberry on Friday was a great start to the weekend. This restaurant serves the most amazing eggs benedict and also boasts a magnificent view of the golf course.
My friend Laurel and I decided to go hiking at Ohme Gardens in Wenatchee. Flowers were beginning to bloom and the views were spectacular. With the aid of walking poles, we tackled some of the more difficult trails. The steep, rocky terrain was well worth the effort. And it was definitely strenuous for yours truly with two replaced knees, although Laurel was more like a mountain goat.
I attended an Alpine concert at Snowy Owl Theater with some friends. The music was delightful and the Alpen horns stole the show. The first time I ever saw one of these horns was decades ago at Epcot in Florida. They are 12-1/2 feet long and are quite a difficult instrument to play.
I was so entranced that I went downtown to the gazebo the following day to see them perform once again. Out at Snowy Owl there had been only three horns. Have a look at the number of horns that played at the gazebo.
