A bear created by cartoonist Phil Frank, found in the Sierras by The Big Guy & given to his Lady. I now travel with them when they go on adventures.
& I can't forget this one, called Warm & Fuzzy. We took a picture just for @i_am_fuzzy
This one was named after a pope, John Paul II. Even in plain white it looks great & has a lovely fragrance.
This one was called Crimson Bouquet. It looked like scarlet velvet.
This one was called the Abbaye de Cluny.
There were so many to look at it was hard to know where to start.
These were called Walking on sunshine. It is called a test garden, but how do flowers take tests?
A lot of the roses were late in blooming because of cold damp weather. But the ones that had were beautiful.
They had a big crowd for season opener, so we had standing room spots. Great view (& good beer & sandwiches)
The next night we went to Eugene to see the Emeralds this is their mascot Sluggo. He was fun.
This is their mascot Crater. We weren't sure what to make of him. I think he is part dragon, part baseball.
But when the wind came up we decided to huddle together in the Bear Bag. Much warmer. Pass the hot dogs.
We started in Salem-Keiser. We had a pretty good seating arraingment.
And was it windy.
This was the oceanside of the bar at the mouth of the Columbia.
The sand on the beach had interesting patterns, two toned.
You don't see many Rivers with waves in them. This is about 2 miles inland from the sea.
But there were lots of pretty flowers. After the fort we went to the Mouth of the Columbia River.
This was the kitchen area, kind of open for an area that gets lots of rain.
This is a recreation, but you got an idea of the primitive conditions.
One day we visited Fort Clatsop where Lewis & Clark wintered after exporing the Louisiana Purchase.
