Well, we've been busy since I "saw" you last! After my post about our tree being taken down, I headed off to Multnomah Falls to volunteer. Gosh, it was busy for a Thursday. We helped many people plan fun hikes and visits to the dam and fish hatchery and trips up to Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood, among many other questions to answer. I pulled out in the viewpoint on my way home and snapped this shot of Rooster Rock and Vista House on Crown Point.
The mighty Columbia River on a brisk Autumn day.
Before we went to the falls we met for lunch at "Celebrate Me Home" - a shop with a cafe inside - we had a nice sandwich and salad. Then we had time to duck into "The General Store" and I was thrilled with a massive collection of Halloween decorations! Here is the old soda fountain they have in there.
More of the decor items.
What would you buy if you were here? I'd love to have that tablecloth!
I'm kind of eyeing that life size skull candleholder! :-)
Yesterday was a goof off day.. I crocheted and enjoyed time with the boys. Today hubby and I headed off for a late lunch in Troutdale at a Sushi restaurant and we tried several things to share. This is shrimp tempura with avocado and asparagus. It was YUM!
We also shared house fried rice and yakisoba noodles. (We brought lots home for lunch tomorrow!)
I like sushi as long as it's cooked. :-)
We ran some errands and then on the way home we drove up to see how the Vista House in Columbia River Gorge looked today. They have been predicting a stormy weekend and it has been. Rain and wind.. but warmish.. weird.
I love going up there to "blow the cobwebs out of my head".
We're home now and it is dusk, Dayle is making roasted potatoes, grilled ham steaks, sausage gravy and buttered corn for all of us for dinner. And I'm visiting with YOU! :-) I hope you're having a fun weekend.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
