Santiam River We took a drive on Oregon's Over the Rivers and Through the Woods Scenic Byway one day last week. But it is Oregon and the rainy season is here -- so we only looked at all that scenery... Continue reading

We had two wonderful family Thanksgiving celebrations. (Not on the same day -- one was an early celebration to include family who wouldn't be here on the actual date). And I took no pictures at all . Because it is... Continue reading

We are still getting organized in our new Eugene home. It does already feel like home except for the kitchen, where everything seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. There's a lot of storage space, just... Continue reading

There were Autumn reds in last week's post and red is beautiful, but October around here is really more about the gold and amber. The collage below is a combination of photos from city and country walks. We've had bright... Continue reading

October blue skies are the best blue skies in the world. Knowing those bright days won't last much longer makes each perfect day even more special. To celebrate the new month, our daughter and I took a walk to Fern... Continue reading

The last of September was about enjoying beautiful Fall flowers all around the City .... ... and the rich colors of Autumn in the country ... here, on a walk to Kirk Pond. "Leaves of three, let it be." Unfortunately,... Continue reading

A bit of Autumn color from Saturday's first-day-of-Fall walk in the country (near our daughter and son-in-law's home). It's fun to see the seasonal change and I like Fall. But this week, I'm still blogging about summer fun. Siuslaw River... Continue reading

It's somewhere around 300 miles from where we live to Arcata California, the destination for our August RVing adventure. A couple of years ago, our daughter and son-in-law drove to the same place to pick up their new puppy from... Continue reading

This week's post is a bit of a ramble, with pictures from various walks over the last few weeks. We are leaving Saturday morning on a camping trip, so I'm putting the post together earlier than usual. I'll take my... Continue reading

Beautiful bouquet! I take pictures of flowers often... we no longer garden, so I just admire other people’s hard work and “steal” their flowers (only with my camera]. I saw your blog on the TypePad FB page... I’m obviously only an amateur, but yours looks great to me...and I’m glad you linked up there.

Thankfully, our summer temperatures are back down to where we like them and so it was a great week for walking in the City. This one was kind of my version of a penny hike. That was something Girl Scouts... Continue reading

It's hot here in Eugene! Temperatures were in the 90s all last week (it cools down at night). Still it's hot enough that we don't have much desire to go for long walks. But we're urban dwellers here and it... Continue reading
