Journey To Oregon, Days 3, 4 & 5 - A Tiny Home, Wineries, Cats and... Oculus Anubis
Day 3 was a rushed drive across the State of Idaho so we could get to Oregon where we were supposed to camp again but it was so hot and dry at the campsite and after not sleeping well the past 2 nights we opted for a comfy motel in Baker City, Oregon where we both fell fast asleep.
Day 4 was our first vineyard stop at St. Innocent Winery, where we met owner and winemaker and chef, Mark Vlossak. He shared some delicious Pinot Noirs with us and an excellent Pinot Blanc (only 1% of Pinot Blanc is grown in Oregon) and some amazing food! We were very satisfied.
Then we made our way to our tiny home Air BNB in the forest of Damascus, Oregon. This place was lovely and so cozy, I didn’t want to leave!
When I found out we would be staying in Damascus, I started to read up about the area and I found out about this weird place called The “Oculus Anubis” and I thought, “Wow we have to try and find this place because it looks really weird!” Ironically when we got to the AirBNB, it was right down the street! You have to read about it here, mystery and fraud abound! The neighbors even have a guard dog to keep people away!
The next two days we drove throughout wine country and visited Left Coast Winery, The Argyle tasting room, Domain Drouhin Winery and Illahe Winery. There were other wineries I wanted to go to as well but we only had so much time and Tim only had so much patience.
