Today’s blog is a bit brief as I returned very late last night from a trip to Oregon to visit my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter Lucy. I had such a wonderful time! I only see them once or twice a year, but knowing that they live in such a beautiful place with outdoor nature-focused activities available year-round makes me happy that their life out there is a good one.
Oregon is incredibly beautiful with many diverse ecosystems. I’ve been to the Columbia River Gorge, which has a major waterfall and a rainforest feel to it. There are many vineyards, which produce excellent pinot noir, my personal favorite wine. There is a rugged coast with beaches and also a desert area, which I have not seen yet. I will share some photos next week.
Before my trip, I finished and delivered the Cinco de Mayo rug, which was a wedding gift for friends of my daughter. I really went bright and happy with it, including gift-wrapping it with a piece of thin, brightly dyed wool and tying it with rainbow ribbon.
There’s a lot of beauty out there in Oregon and also in a gift for a happy occasion.
