Mostly we ate at Vicki and Sandy’s cabin. Sort of cheesy as camping goes, but easy. One night, however, we decided we needed to cook at our campsite. The menu… baked potatoes, in the fire, steak cooked on the fire, and corn on the cob, also cooked on the fire. The gnats were gnasty… LOL… but it was a great tasting meal. Add a beer and it was down right splendid.
We had a terrific time on Sunday with our pals and all the pups. Thanks guys for a really nice time. Not to mention the after hike lunch at the St. Johns McMenamins Pub. Tasty. Nothing says healthy more than following up a physical fitness activity like enjoying a burger and a strawberry lemonade at the pub.
We ended the weekend with some weed pulling at the house. They have somehow taken over all of our flower beds. They must be thwarted. They must be vanquished. They must be… well… pulled. So we started that process in the big bed. And let me tell ya… it’s a process. But damn… our place is looking lovely right now. And again I’ll say… we are lucky. In so many ways.
As to the photo above… you can see Benny’s paw in the shot… we were only missing Weston and Riley’s and it would’ve been perfect. Maybe next time?
We had some company over for dinner yesterday. We didn’t invite them, they showed up unannounced. But even so, we enjoyed watching them. I love where we live. We get to see this all of the time. I could do without the cougar who sometimes lives at our house, but these beauties. They are welcome any time. Even though they do tend to eat our flowers, plants, grass, trees, etc. We love them… yes, we do. At least we know if they’re around the cougar isn’t. Always a plus…
We left our place last Wednesday, July 16, after work at about 6:00 PM and pulled into the Davis Lake campground at about 10:00 PM. Nothing like good music and good company to take a person down the road. We got to Davis Lake, set up our tent, blew up our air mattress, threw in our sleeping bags, and then chatted briefly before heading to bed.
The next morning Don took me out to see this little batch of flowers growing in this old stump in the water. Very pretty.
I posted a similar one to this over at my photo blog, image – ination. Check it out. This was, again, taken at Cathedral Park earlier today.
We went to Cathedral Park yesterday for Weston. You know, give the little guy a long walk in a nice place. He sometimes gets to meet new people, which he did yesterday, and to play with other dogs, which he also did yesterday. It rained a little, but nothing true Oregonians such as ourselves can’t deal with. It was actually a nice day and a lovely walk.
