A quiet interlude before the end of the Tour

My dear friend Pam and her daughter are staying with us until they leave for their new life in Virginia. It is wonderful to have this kind of time together; they have been in Saipan for two years, and Skype just isn't the same (although very much better than no Skype!).

Yesterday we drove down to the Willamette River, rode the ferry across as pedestrians (free), and walked through Willamette Mission State Park. The blackberries and wildflowers were plentiful, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Last night I skeined off my last yarn (skein #6) for the TdF. I’ve continued spinning the white alpaca on my wee Bubinga Kuchulu, and have it just about filled to capacity. But this post is already photo-heavy, so I'll share spinning pictures tomorrow!

That's it for today from . . .

That berry photo reminds me of the illustrations in "Jamberry"; do you remember reading that one to your son?

My knee didn't think so, Sara. :-/

Thank-you, Nancy Kay; it is a GREAT place and very close to home!

Yes, yes I do, Sherry! Good memory, that. :-)

There is nothing better than enjoying a friends company in person. I'm glad to hear you are able to spend time with your friend and daughter before they head onto their next destination.

Beautiful pictures of the bird, water, family, friends, and berries.
