I haven't had time to unpack yet.....getting my house in order from being gone.... so I don't have any pictures of my loot yet. But I will share the grandbaby and road trip photos up this time;) Hope you enjoy;)
Getting used to grandma being there;)
Helping grandma do the dishes;)
I think he is part ham;)
First time at the lake....loved it!!!!
Us Girls at Lake Frenchman, CA. Three generations;)
Mom made cookies......YUM!!! YUM!!! YUM!!! I will have to share her recipe soon;)
We rented a car for the road trip. We saved SO much money on gas it wan't even funny. We made the cost of the rental up the first day alone. That, and it was fun to drive!!
Quiltworks, Bend Oregon...super fun store with a gallery upstairs with a rotating display of local quilters. Really worth the stop.
Our reason for heading back to Oregon...Mo's;) Not fine dining by any means, but a true greasy seafood diner. If you ever go there, try the Shark Bite....super Yummy;)
Sand!!! Beach sand at that!! Bare feet!!! Happiness!!!!
Florence, Oregon. They have so many of these cool bridges;)
Oh, yeah...forgot the stop in Sisters, Oregon. In my opinion....if you want to say that you have been there, go ahead and stop by. As far as quilt shops go, I would rate it a 5. Not impressed. At all. I will talk more about my experience in the next blog. The shops in Bend were much more fun than this one.
The restaurant I want to buy. Really. But dreams are okay. You wouldn't believe the price on this.
Winchester Bay....I fell in love with this place. I will be back to live there soon. Clearest water I have seen in the years I have been back in the States.
Will pose for chips!!!
Lupine on the coast. It is sooooo green there it's amazing!!
Oregon coast...late afternoon.
Self portait at sunset, Oregon Coast.
Not the greatest picture, but it's Mount Shasta. She was shedding her hat of clouds for us as we pulled into the area.
We headed back out of Oregon, taking a side trip into Lassen National Park. Needless to say, this was the end of this particular branch of the trip. We stopped for lunch, and then headed back the way we came.
Lassen National Park. Beautiful.
Rented another car for the ride home. In the distance is where some of my fondest childhood memories developed.
I am home. I have fallen officially in love with Oregon. I felt good, healthy, and alive. I know I talked about this last year, but I had to go back and make sure that it wan't just infatuation. As soon as we can pull up roots here, we are gone.
Hope you enjoyed the photo tour;) I will blog on the quilty stuff in the next entry. Hope everyone is well, and Happy Quilting!!
