I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday with my BFF Shirley. We've had a lot of rain lately and the Falls was RoArInG! When I went out to get some espresso for Shirley and I, after putting in the order at the coffee cart I walked up towards the Falls to snap a photo and to just enjoy watching the water rush down the cliff and over the rocks. When it's high flow, there are 7500 gallons PER SECOND going over.
I got this shot from the volunteer parking area which gives you a different perspective. It's on the other side of Multnomah Creek which was also rushing and deep.
Benson Bridge... see the massive amount of water behind it?
I zoomed in to the top of the Falls.. roar!
The water coming over from the first pool.
This is the other side of the creek.. there is a big patch of lime green lichen which I love seeing. I tried to show you how much moss covers the trees and branches, too.
I took my blue booties to work on and I was happy to finish the 2nd one. These are for my son's friend at work, the one who took him Salmon fishing. He and his wife had their first child, a boy. I was able to send them to work with Travis today. I hope they like them.
Done.. woohoo. Now I have a pair of pink booties to do and the baby boom is over in my life.. for now. :-)
My cousin Nancy received the booties I sent to Texas and delivered them to her youngest daughter for her first baby.. and she sent me this photo. They seem to fit just right with a bit of room for growth. Sweet!
I found two more hearts that were given to me by two blogger friends, the one on the left is from Helen Philipps who is a wonderful crafter and author of several books. The one on the right is from my friend and swimming partner Gracie. Both hearts hang all year on my grandfather clock and TV stand.
One of the other local bloggers and friend, Kathy, from Running With Rocket blog, was in Hawaii and had a giveaway contest which I won and look at this big bag of Macadamia nuts she sent! NUMMMERS! Thanks, Kathy!
And look what greeted me this morning! Kristi brought home this bromeliad! It's just starting to open and should be very impressive when it is all pouffy!
A pretty color, isn't it?
It's a swimming day. I'll be on my own as Gracie has things to do. I hope it's not too crowded! My blog friend Anne in England has started to swim, good for you, Anne! I hope you love it. I hope you have a great weekend. We're going to visit our older son on Saturday because their flight was delayed last week and we had to go home before they arrived. Do you have any fun plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
