A Lovely Break

Holiday Time

The ocean in California

Giant Redwood Trees

Coastal Fog in Oregon

Sweet air from the ocean and thousands and thousands and miles upon miles of trees along the Oregon Coastal highway and up into Washington. 

No cooking, laundry or cleaning

DS did all the driving, I read while travelling

Time to not think, plan, work

No dogs to look after, no email

DGS time, swimming, reading, talking, walking, travelling.

Many many long hours and we were back home for 2 1/2 days.

Didn't know how much I needed a break 
until I got home again.


And then there was more...

We drove to the Okanagan to visit V and P. DGS has had so much fun with Auntie V and has talked up a storm (garden discoveries and water hoses and chasing were also involved).

Many hugs, lots and lots of visiting.

Big change in scenery from Oregon and Washington.

More visiting. Great meals together. Giant tomatoes bigger than two of my fists. Heritage.

Thrifted in towns new to me. 
Worth another trip now that I know 'where'.

Sitting on the deck in rocking chairs with more visiting in the dusk and late evening on this bench wrapped in a blanket while the sprinkler watered the cherry tree.

Catching up. It has been 5 years since our last visit.

Thank you DH and DS and P and V.

Bit of a blogging break

Hi all. Got caught in the gmail spam mess. Put my camera card in my cd slot - and it doesn't come out. Working hard and not catching up. Shortest least colourful post ever. Not complaining but I am taking a break from blogging until I get some stuff caught up.
