Sauvie Island


A twenty minute drive
from downtown Portland is a shore birds habitat.
We watched the gulls and the herons.
Skippers visited the wild flowers.
An Osprey watched us.
Birds, butterflies, blooms, fresh peach cobbler, corn on the cob, top down birding, laughter and music; life in Portland is lovely.
Daughter's hugs, tomato sandwiches, fresh figs and Farmer's market, sweet sleep and theater: I will miss her.
Off to Olympic National Park.

Today I will see more song birds.
I miss you!

Hi Housefrau,
We were tucked in tight. I do not know why I could not post but all is well and we had a wonderful vacation! Best part was seeing you!
