After a month in our Mobile Home Park, our friends  Jim and Neila have left on the next phase of their Journey. Goodbyes are hard for us so we just say "So long for now." There were many evenings of cards, sharing meals and laughs

In between their appointments and schedules we packed a lot of fun in July... A Picnic at Haag Lake
Fourth of July Fireworks in Estacada, Oregon

An afternoon at Timothy Lake near Mt. Hood

A trip to Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood

We picked Cherries near Kaiser, Oregon

We enjoyed a day on Suavie Island

We invited them to the annual Tarr Family Reunion near Estacada that also included a Horseshoe Tournament. Joe's daughter and Son in law took first place again this year.

This is a stop at the Gorge White House on our annual Fruit Loop around Mt. Hood   

Ready to board the Oregon City Trolley for a Oregon City Historical tour.Oregon City Trolley

An overlook on the Willamette River at the John Storm Park in Oregon City

Following the Oregon City Tour, we took off for Hood River to watch the Kite Surfers on the Columbia River

What a relaxing day!

Before they left, we went to the horseshoe pits in Oregon Cit where Joe gave them a few pointers on throwing shoes.

We expect to see some tournament champions in the future.


  1. What a wonderful, fun-filled July you had. Great photos of "Just Relaxing." You two may need to do more of that in August.

  2. Not much better than so many great times with good friends. Lucky you to have had so much fun.

  3. It looks like so much fun and relaxing with family.

  4. Looks like you had lots of fun while your friends were there with you. Enjoyed your pictures and the recap of your adventures.
