The city of Ashland and its Oregon Shakespeare Festival is pretty much Disneyland for intellectuals, summer camp for theater fans. For more on the festival, http://www.osfashland.org/index.aspx
The town, itself, is a delight of tasteful shops, comfortable hotels and B&Bs and wonderful restaurants. Eat, sleep, go to the theater, repeat. In between, go shopping or eat ice cream (every second shop seems to be a gelateria).
We got into town mid-afternoon yesterday after leaving Portland at about 9:30. It’s blisteringly hot, as so often it can be, with temps in the upper 90s.
We are staying at the McCall house, where we have been for the past several years.
Today, we see two plays, Comedy of Errors and Coriolanus.
