Christmas in July

Christmas in July

My friends here chide me constantly because I head south to Mexico at the first hint of snow in the fall. Stay for the tree lighting. Stay for Christmas. Well……I did experience Christmas here in Leavenworth. The setting was the Upper Valley Museum on Wednesday night. I even have some photos to prove it!

The tree lighting? I prefer to watch that online where I don’t have to brave the frigid temperatures or contend with the traffic jams caused by all the tourists who invade this quaint Bavarian village.

Last night I enjoyed a spectacular performance of My Fair Lady out at The Fish Hatchery. I am amazed by the local talent found in Leavenworth Summer Theater. And what a setting in the background! The occasional drone of a helicopter as well as the smokey haze are constant reminders of the wildfires at this time of year.

This afternoon we went to Wenatchee to see Momma Mia Here We Go Again. Excellent music and a great cast. Cher hasn’t changed a bit over the years and we should all be like her at that age.

I did find time to visit my tree in Cashmere the other day. Even though it’s still completely green it is still absolutely gorgeous.

This will be my last post for a while as I’m off to the San Juan islands for a few days. Come August I will have more photos and anecdotes to share.
