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.

I look.
I listen.

I see my daughter.

She is laughing.
A Robin hunts for worms.

I am comfortable.

City Of Roses

is known as the City of Roses.

Rose gardens dot the city landscape.

It could also be known as the City of Hydrangeas.

Today I visited the Japanese Garden.

I pack light.

I always think if I need something I can pick it up while I am away.
This is exciting.

My camera equipment is another story.
I need everything.
I bought another battery.
I am almost ready to leave on Holiday.

We leave in two weeks.
I am ready.
I have checked off everything on my list of needs.
Tomorrow I get my hair cut, pedicure and manicure.

I am excited.
