Oregon State Capitol in Salem, Oregon

Today we visited the State of Oregon Capitol Building in Salem.  We had a private guided tour of the Capitol building.  Afterwards, we drove over to Mr. Angel and had lunch at the Glockenspiel Restaurant.  I picked this place for two reasons.  First, Debbie loves a good fondue, hard to find in a restaurant today and secondly, they have a glockenspiel.  Our starters included a salad for me and mushroom-sun dried tomato soup for Debbie.  Then we shared the fondue with bread cubes and sliced apples.  It was good!  We finished with Yager Chicken for Debbie and the Brat Sampler for me, along with sauerkraut and spaetzle.  Then went outside to see the Glockenspiel in action.  I tried to download the Glockenspiel video, but at 13:04, it must be too long to download.
