Apr 29, 2017 - Visit A. May and then onward to Nehalem

5/1 We arrived in Tigard at A. May's and were met by Molly, her daughter, as she was receiving med. equipment related to hospice care. When we arrived the driver of a medical supply truck was parked in front of the house. At first , I feared we were too late but Molly assured us that, although she was not feeling well, Aunt May was looking forward to seeing us which indeed was the case. She was in pain from issues related to her legs, the doctor having told her that he could treat the symptoms or amputate. Aunt May opted for pain relief....

To Joe and Gayl Balden's...fellow travelers and appreciators of life in general. It is such a great joy to laugh and enjoy travel exchanges with people, and especially when they have a similar background/point of reference. Of course, it helps when our views of the world coincide as well i.e. political/social/economic point of view. Loved our stay, tho too short as it seems is always the case.

Oct 4, 2009 - A wonderful Oregon State Park

. We couldn’t have asked for a better travel day for the 98-mile drive to our latest destination, Nehalem Bay State Park in Oregon. Although a bit cooler than past days, skies were mostly clear and we encountered no wind whatsoever.

We said our good-byes and drove onto the Yaquina Bay Bridge with Len snapping a few quick photos of our little home passing over the span. He emailed the photos and I have...
