...stitches road trip: day one...

Well, Ettamae, and I have finished our first day on the road to Stitches. We left home today about 8:00 a.m. and pulled into Ashland at around 1:00 (after Starbuck, of course). We planned on lunch there and what do you know......they have a lovely knitting shop! Web-sters is a beautiful shop with a wonderful selection of yarn and the biggest collection of Lantern Moon bags I have ever seen! After our visit there we had a wonderful lunch at a cute restaurant called Greenleaf. Delicious! They offered us wine with lunch, but since we had many miles to cover before we slept, we declined. :{

After a stop at our favorite gas station (more about that tomorrow), we were on the road again. Up over the summit in good shape, with no need for chains, we met this.........
Beautiful Mt. Shasta. So pretty!
We pulled into Redding, CA. about 5:30, checked into our room and went down to the lobby for the managers beer and wine reception....nice! A little knitting, a little wine and then back to the room to reflect on our day. Tired, but a good tired! Tomorrow......day two.........

    From Ashland to the Bay Area is also a great drive! Both Web*sters and Greenleaf are required stopping places when we go to the Shakespeare festival every summer there.

    Safe drive, and see you tomorrow!
