Hello there! How are you doing? Yesterday I volunteered at Multnomah Falls with my friend Shirley. It was a wonderful time of meeting the most interesting people. I headed off to get us each a coffee at the espresso cart and while they were making it I hiked up to say hello to the falls. It was roaring away.
The Benson bridge had many hikers crossing it, heading up to the top of the falls and back. Some just go as far as the bridge and enjoy seeing the water pass under them and then cascade once more.
This is the lower falls.
The top of the upper falls.
WAY up top.. whoosh..
Zooming in to the top of the lower falls.
On my way back down to the lodge I was thrilled to see these gorgeous pink flowers on this bush. Unfortunately, I cannot identify them. Argh. (ETA - this is a Pink Flowering Currant". Thanks, CJ, Jane and Jacquie!)
But whatever they are they are GORGEOUS!
Here are Shirley and I on duty. Can you believe we met in 7th grade and have been friends for.. ::gasp:: 53 years? She came to visit me when I lived in Hawaii and also after I was first married in Louisiana. I visited her many times while she lived in Seattle. She's my BFF.
When we went to get in the car I snapped this shot of the Licorice Ferns growing up the side of this tree in the moss.
Oh look at the blue sky!
The moss on the rock wall was in full neon green.
Our squirrel has taken to sitting on the garden shed.. I think we need to name him. Any ideas? Rocky?
When I was looking at other Midori journals on google images I saw several had charms on them. So, I looked through my jewelry box and found a pendant and a charm and added them to my book. Do you like it? The little string with the little charm is actually a built in bookmark!
OK, I need to hustle.. instead of swimming today we're taking the boys to see the Tulip Festival in Woodburn. I may run in to Gracie and her granddaughters as they plan to go also. Fun fun! I hope you're making the most of your day. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
