Catoctin and Kimpton – Cocktail Combo.

Leave a comment

Visited the Lorien Hotel (a Kimpton) in Alexandria for an evening where friends of ours from different lands and lives unknowingly were working on the same project – a tasting of Catoctin Creek’s locally distilled and bottled rye and brandy’s paired with Chef’s choice hors d’oeuvres from the Lorein.  Our friends Becky and Scott Harris have created a high level distillery in Purcellville, VA and Steph Vogel, another amazing person-friend runs the Lorien. The perfect cocktail storm.

The Laundry Series..

Omnipresent in European towns and villages – laundry hanging, drying, billowing. Lovely but tired scenes of buildings and light enhanced with signs of daily life.

While nature is paramount in the Norwegian mountains, humans have develpoed some some cool habitat-ness. Also, they are so tiny compared to mountains and waterfalls!
