Spirit of Washington Dinner Train, 30th May

This was Gennie's birthday present. We finally got around to using the gift certificate five months later! Unfortunately it was a bit rainy that day.

The roses were part of the present too.

These are wine barrels at the Columbia Winery in Woodinville, at the end of the railway line.
