After having a nice breakfast we headed towards
the Old Mill District-
We walked and walked all day
passing by patient dogs waiting ....
Walking by old schools having
a second chance of usefulness....
The city of Bend has been smart at reusing
old buildings, rather than tearing them down
and blending old with new....
Artists do the same creatively recycling
old parts into new art.....
One example of affordable housing
Meanwhile geese look for lunch while
families float by on the Deschutes River...
a lovely way to spend the day....
Finally we discovered a great neighborhood
watering hole suitable for families
The Riverside Market....
That bison looks almost steampunk.ReplyDelete
What are those two rings in the water? Oh, and I love the bison creation!!ReplyDelete
Wandering the town and eating where the locals go is the best way to see a place and get a feel for it. Looks like a great trip so far, and i hope it continues that way!ReplyDelete
I haven't been to Bend, OR in years. It's a neat little town indeed.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day. Hugs. ☺
Lovely, I hope to get down there before summer ends. I love the place.ReplyDelete
It's a great feeling to look at blog photos and recognize each and every one of them! Come back soon, please.ReplyDelete
Bend is a great place and just the spot when we Portlanders get tired of rain and need some sunshine, which Bend has lots of.ReplyDelete
Love the picture of the dog just sitting so nice. Sweet!!ReplyDelete
