I thought I'd try something different this week.
Not sure what you call this-but I hope you all
enjoy it! Visit Magpie Tales for more great poetry!
Cheers and have a great weekend.

I am here in Manzanita Oregon...sitting in the local library...unable to post photos...BUT just visualize the most stellar day you EVER had at a beach...and that's what I am experiencing
Photos to follow when I get home in a few days....aloha!
And now....presto...the promised photos.........
The beach was simply wonderful
We went to the dump one day to recycle
stuff plus take out the garbage...

we always do! Could it be the fun times playing trianimos? Here's Bill
patiently keeping score and patiently ignoring our pouting (me)
and gloating (Russell).
Or could it be the always fabulous and delicious meals prepared by Ewana?
Nope! It's the fact that they are just doggone good friends we enjoy sharing adventures and good times with.....such as the Yreka Golden Fair.
We went to the fair for 3 days-it was fun watching the families
and kids having so much fun!
Here are a few photos from our time at the fair:
First there was the C and W concert...
Then the rodeo! Yee Haw!
Finally, the Destruction Derby with one of the cars having Russell's name on it
as Bill and Ewana had cooked up this scheme to surprise Russell...it worked!
What a hoot.

Our most favorite group Sasparilla Jug Band was playing
and is all this month from 6pm-8pm...go see them if you can!
The Mountain Man Rendevous. All weekend
they were camped out having fun recreating the past
wearing circa clothing and shooting black powder rifles.
While Russell shot at targets, I sat peaceably reading at the campsite.
The cattails by the pond....
and grasses blowing in the wind.....
Saturday I drove down to Neahkahnie Mountain to
celebrate John and Amy's 22nd Anniversary,
Laura's 47th Birthday and Zan's upcoming move to Florida
(only for 18 months or so...)
Here's a shot of Laura and Zan enjoying sister time...
A shot of Saturday's dinner...lovely time

We hiked the trails at Silver Creek Falls-
