Hello out there! How are you doing? Any fun weekend plans? I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday and had a nice time helping people to make the most of their visit to the Columbia River Gorge. We sent them to see the salmon making their way up the fish ladders at Bonneville Dam, up to see Vista House and suggested they might stop for dinner at Tad's Chicken 'n' Dumplins. Not much water was going over the falls.. we're way short in rain this year.
When I arrived home in the evening, I noticed the Vine Maple in our little forest had deepened in color and the Hydrangea flowers have turned from purple to grape violet.
The Vine Maples really do add a lot of color to our forest byways.
What a neat flower.. it's been putting on a show all summer!
I was pleased to see the Dahlias are still blooming and putting on new buds!
Love the gold of this bloom tinged with orange.
3 pots of Geraniums blooming away.
Hello Mrs. PINK!
My son Travis went fishing again with his work buddies and look at this monster Chinook Salmon he caught! It is 38 inches long and 35-40 lbs! We're smoking this one today on our pellet smoker grill outside.
His supervisor at work - they caught 6 Chinook Salmon and Travis brought home 3!
A proud fisherman showing us the two smaller Chinook - we baked one for dinner last night and served it with buttered Yukon Gold potatoes and peas. Yum yum.
I'm going to go swimming today and then a lovely unscheduled weekend. What plans do you have? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
