My in-laws recently moved from Dallas to Portland, so we went for a visit. It's hard to believe places like that really exist, the exquisite beauty of water and mountains and huge trees.
Ted and I decided we need to live next to the ocean.
We couldn't believe how big even the fruit was in Oregon.
This is the view from Garry & Rachel's living room window. Sigh.
Rachel & Garry with their "babies," next to a community garden. I wish we had one here!
Their house- just kidding! I saw this in the woods and had to take a picture. I'm not sure where I'm going to use it in my art, but I just love the crumbling structure.
After lunch, we walked on the trail nearby. It was like stepping back in time.
Suddenly a curve in the trail revealed this waterfall!
Ted wanted to get in, but I wouldn't let him. I'm a stick-in-the-mud, I know.
Multnomah Falls is breathtaking.
At the bottom of the falls.
We took a trip down the coast and stopped by these amazing trees. They don't grow this tall in Texas!
Our view when we looked up.
It was pretty chilly there- a welcome relief from 100+ degree days in Texas!
Did I mention we want to move to Oregon?...
