Mermaids…..In Montana???

As we move forward, we have run into a few issues that require some learning.  One is our cameras, a Canon EOS Rebel T3 and our GoPro 3Plus, which led us into learning how to edit.  For this task, we chose Adobe Premiere CC.  While we find all three to be very easy to work with and become decent at, we needed to practice on some older material to kind of get the hang of editing.  To that end, we have posted our first rudimentary edit of a video we shot around 4 years ago. It was shot on an older iPhone, specifically a 3GS.

The subject is a very interesting bar in Great Falls, Montana called the Sip ‘N Dip Lounge at the O’Haire Motor Inn.  It’s claim to fame, mermaids, yes, mermaids.  At any rate. we have completed our first edit and would like to share it with you all.  There is much, much more to come. Oh, and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel while you watch.

 

Quails’ Gate Reserve Pinot Noir

Quails’ Gate is a Canadian winery, located in the Okanagan Valley of British Colombia.  The wine, a reserve Pinot Noir, approximately $45 CAD.  As we usually find for wines from this region, it is very earthy, not something I find desirable in a Pinot.  We like our Pinot’s to be very fragrant to the nose and light and flavorful to the tongue. This is my common complaint for wines from BC.  Having said that, I would very much recommend this one for a variety of reasons.  First, many people prefer the earthiness exhibited by this bottle, so I must disqualify myself from being overly critical, just not my cup of tea so to speak.  Second, I have had many wines in this price range that were inferior to this one.  Finally, it is a Canadian wine and I must support it just on that alone.  You be the judge after you have tried it.  I give it a 3 out of 5 on our personal scale, and will stick to the French or California Pinot’s.
