No strangers to the art of winemaking, the Wetzel family?s roots run deep into the vineyards that surround their winery. For four generations, they have crafted award-winning wines in Germany, and for the last 35, they have called Oregon home. Chateau Bianca Winery peeks out from the Willamette Valley, where pinot noir grapes flourish across the estate vineyards. These carefully cultivated grapes eventually fill bottles with varietals such as the 2009 Chateau Bianca Estate pinot blanc, a dry, clean-finishing wine that makes a refreshing apertif.
Guests visit the tasting room to sample some of Chateau Bianca?s wines, where each day a rotating selection of six bottles are uncorked for swirling and sipping. On days when the summer sun dapples the fields and shimmers playfully off Bacchus?s lampshade hat, sippers relax on the outdoor patio to enjoy a glass or share a bottle while looking out across rows of vines.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Since 1990, Kandice Champion's expert tutelage has propelled horses into being victorious in dressage, hunt seat, and Western show rings. Champion Training Center's expansive facility accommodates participants of all ages and skill sets as they enrich their riding prowess atop trained school horses during daytime, evening, and weekend sessions led by Kandice and her squad of qualified teachers. In addition to lessons, Champion Training Center supplies devoted equestrians with horses for sale and equips riders with new and used accoutrements, including saddles, boots, and equine tiaras.
Once a small artists' colony, Cannon Beach still plays host to a number of local galleries scattered throughout the town. Cedar-shingled boutiques dot the downtown shopping district, where visitors can also find several restaurants and wine bars.The town’s greatest draw, though, is its natural, coastal grandeur. Paying a visit to Haystack Rock is a must, but nearby Ecola State Park offers a more panoramic view of the Oregon coast. Here, hikers navigate forest trails once traversed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition, passing through towering sitka spruces, douglas firs, and western hemlock and pausing at ocean overlooks to espy migrating gray whales in the distance.
Warmly reviewed by the Oregonian, Kayak Tillamook County tours explore over 800 miles of Oregon's coastal and tidal waterways. After receiving some basic paddling instruction and a review of the water cycle on dry land, each participant gets their own thermos of hot apple cider with a fresh cinnamon stick and a side of a Skout Bar before hitting the water. Kayakers will share the water with up to seven rivermates, paddling in the gentle wake of an expert guide over the course of the two-hour tour. Winter voyages can occur during salmon runs, so keep an eye out for a host of wildlife including eagles, harbor seals, and dads in grilling aprons. Temperatures are warmer on the coast during the winter than in the interior of the state and the tide is at its highest, enabling intrepid paddlers to delve deeper into nature while enjoying the crisp, clear winter skies.
