  • Chilly Hands and Fried Clams

    Fried prawns on Christmas Eve are a family tradition. And some years, when we’re lucky, there’s a clam dig. Then we have fried, fresh razor clams too. There were two days of clam digging this year. The first you’ll see here where Bob, Keith, Cindie, and Zach easily dug their limit for a total of […]

  • Visiting Ed and Mary

    On our way home from visiting Ed and Mary, we stopped at this canyon. Since we stopped there last, a new bridge is in place. They left the old bridge intact which allowed me to take the above photo. The last time we stopped here, we were with Rob and Cindie when their dog, Cali […]

  • A Stop at Crater Lake on Our Way Home

    A Stop at Crater Lake on Our Way Home

    We took a little side trip to Crater Lake on our way home. On the road in to the park we stopped at this little gem to get sandwiches and chips. I admit, I wasn’t prepared for how incredible Crater Lake really is – I choked up. A nice passerby clicked the above shot for […]

  • Merry Moments in Sebastopol (in no particular order)

We ate dinner and played games at Suzanna’s place. Dori and Dave made Dates stuffed with Blue Cheese and Almonds, […]

  • Redding High(and HOT)lights

    Let’s be honest about Redding in late July – It’s hot. Really hot. But, despite the 105 degree days and 77 degree nights, we had so much fun! Two of our favorite people in the world. (They’re sweet aren’t they?) I’m kind of attached to that guy on the left too… We started our visit walking […]

  • On our way to Cali…

    The sun shines bright on us driving down highway 97 from Bend to Redding. We stop once along the way at our favorite rest area near Weed, CA – Grass Lake. We take a little walk around, admiring the art (ahem.) and the wispy grass swaying where water stood two months ago when we made the trip […]

  • Bob’s Birthday, Scouting for Campsites, and The Metolius River

    The day before Bob’s birthday – Happy 69th! (again) – we took a little road trip to see the Metolius River and scout campgrounds north of Sisters in hopes of some August camping trips. The Metolius River is unique in that you can take a short stroll down a path and see it’s mouth – […]
