Then across the city for fish tacos. (We are on the hunt for the best fish tacos. For the moment Colima's in Santa Ana holds the trophy).
A ukulele lesson on Monday eve. All about finger picking the melody line. I was lost, Tom enjoyed.
Mendicino Art Center in Mendicino. Lots of family history and good camping times tied to this area.
Driving through one of the redwood trees you can drive through. We drove up the pacific coast and through the impressive redwoods. It had been years.
Art Museum in Eureka, a former Carnegie Free Llibrary. It had been headed towards distraction but was saved and it is marvelous.
Portland has amazing food. The meat and potatoe folks might be a little too faint of heart, or however that saying goes.
DAY 9 of this adventure. Off to sort of near by Sauvie Island for berry and veggie picking.
Today we made Orange Ginger Marmelade. We brought oranges from our tree at home. And we made blueberry/marionberry jam. Pickles are in process, bread and butter and an old family recipe from tom's family for India pickles. Will need to report back on these.
Along the way I have spent time with a quilter friend, Tom bought more Oregon Black Walnut wood, a dear young man and his son dropped by, had a pilates class.
In My Quilt World. I have an interview article in In Stitches, an E, online magazine. And I hear a quilt of mine is featured in Quilting Arts for an ad for In Stitches. All is good.
