A Few New Things

Before you get to see pictures of what I've been up to, here is "she who rules the house" soaking up some sun this morning. She is wearing one of her latest coats made by her "grandma". Today we have had sunshine, rain, hail, rain, snow, rain..... I wonder what I'll wake up to tomorrow morning.

Columbia River Gorge Road Trip!!!!

Last Saturday Hubby and I decided it was time to get out of Portland for the day. We were tired of the rain and Oregon gray we have been enjoying for the last few weeks. So we sent Trixie to our son's for the day to play with Meeka, loaded the car up with some junk food :) and off we went to explore the Gorge. We take this trip several times a year and always find something or someplace new to explore. This time was no different.

Mitchell Point
Looking west toward Portland.
Downtown Hood River, Oregon. We spent several hours exploring the little shops and had lunch at 6th St Bistro. Yumm!
We had miles to drive so we did not take the tour at Full Sail Brewery. Maybe next time!
Memaloose Island

Vicor Trevitt's grave marker on Memaloos Island.

Looking east from the Memaloose Lookout. I see BLUE sky!!
We decided to drive home on the Washington side of the gorge. Just look at what we would have missed if we hadn't crossed the river in The Dalles, Oregon.
Exotic Deer
and my favorite
American Bison!!!!
Fine end to our trip.
Sunshine and Bison.
