I went to my first ballet! My sweetheart and I saw The Nutcracker, and we were not disappointed. The set, the costumes, and the music: all wonderful.
They had, I believe, silk backgrounds. They were lovely, and depending on the light, we would see different sets. I don’t really know how it works, but it was cool.
After the show, we went out to eat at a nice restaurant. I got the cassoulet, and it was RICH. Definitely worth a to-go box home!
Did you think I forgot about hiking? Nope! We walked around an open shopping area before the ballet, and William Sullivan (OR hiking guru) was selling his books. I picked up this gem and he signed it. Woohoo! I’ve already scoped out some fun ones to do (hopefully) this winter, weather & roads permitting.
