Last Minute But Really Needed!

We decided to drive down to Portland on Saturday. The weather was supposed to be sunny and Chuck had the day off and we were ready for a change of scenery! Sharaya and Ally (she wants it spelled with a 'y' now) 😊 decided to come with us and we had such a great time!

First stop was a viewpoint overlooking the Columbia River.

That little dome was our next stop

This is Vista House, built in 1917 and it was so pretty up there but SO windy!! We could actually lean into the wind!

The trees were all like this, branches facing one direction!


 Can you see the one branch wrapped around the trunk?

 Next we were off to the waterfalls ~

Sharaya and I walked up this little path to get a better view

I needed a bit of nature this weekend.

Then it was off to the next one ~

I hope you all get a much needed break this week!

Some of us need them more than others!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Looks like you had a great time, in spite of the wind! Yes, sometimes you gotta just go!! We did that with our kids a week ago, and it was such fun to get away and see the mountains. Gives us a new perspective on "life" down here. God bless you all, and Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
