What's Happening in Wine Country
White Pass   May always shapes up to be one of the most beautiful months of the year.  After an all time record cold April, we are looking forward to a warmer May. The passes are clear and the mountains are glorious. The pool and spa are open, the grass is coming up green and blooms are everywhere.  If you have been listening to the national news recently you have to believe that we live in a little bit of heaven.  No tornados or floods, just warm sunshine.  Now all we need is you!
  Spring Barrel Tasting was huge again this year.  We were concerned that our guests from western Washington would be put off by the snow in the Cascades but that is one tough bunch!  They came in droves to taste what will become some of the world's finest wines.  Our Saturday morning breakfast and evening microbrew tasting at Wine Country RV Park were also packed. 
  By the way, did I mention that asparagus is in full production?

Apps for Web Enabled Phones 


The new web enabled cell phones are all the rage but what's all the excitement about.  Not only can you make a phone call but you have the entire world of the internet right in the palm of your hand.  Email, twitter and facebook are just a touch away.  The real power comes from little tiny programs that address your particular need.  These are called apps and there is an app for just about everything that you ever wanted to do. Here is a beginners guide for Apps. 


 There is one app that really amazes  

me.  Google Goggles allows you to take pictures of just about anything and Google will give you information on that item.  Google Goggle for Wine will find tasting information, cost and who produces it. 

Now all I need is my new Android phone!!

Pain Getting You Down?

   As we age we seem to accumulate more and more aches and pains.  Bodies wear out and complain about overuse and the abuse that we heaped upon them when we were young.  
Very shortly the Yakima Valley begins harvesting one of Natures best pain fighters.  Cherries will be picked in late June through July.  This article tells the story of their health benefits.    
Come on over and get the best in the Northwest at our Saturday morning Farmers' Market.
