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.
