play ball!

 Last evening we went over to the campus to take in a baseball game between the Walla Walla Sweets and the Winachee Apple Sox.  Even though it was hot at 7 PM, there was a good turn out.  These teams are made up of college baseball players from all over the country who join summer leagues for the pure fun of playing ball for three months.  

This was our view from behind home plate.  When we left at the 7th inning stretch, the Sweets were behind, 4 - 2.  In the bottom of the 8th, they finally caught fire and pulled a win.  We believe it was our departure that allowed them the win!

No ball game is complete without a beer - Rolling Rock a special on $2 Tuesday ~ and fries.

Not the good garlic kind, but pretty good, with a nice aioli dip.

This afternoon we're going to check out a couple of local wineries, and tonight it's dinner at Saffron.
They have Moroccan Lamb Tagine on the menu; I'm ready to order, thank you.

Tomorrow morning we're off to Missoula, MT for the night.  Travel report to come.
