Friday we drove our favorite I-5 stretch between Portland Oregon and our California home. It was the most beautiful day for driving; the view starting with Mount St. Helen's, and ending with a fully snow-clad Mount Shasta at dusk. If I hadn't been the one driving, I would have taken some pictures (and to be fair, AJ would have taken some if I hadn't packed the camera in the duffel which was later packed in the farthest regions of tha van.) We arrived in town after dark but it's really truly Spring here (the kind with GREEN grass, and flowers) and we could roll the windows down and take in the cool air scented by Almond blossoms and new oat grass. Yes, it was very hard to take! ;-)
We were able to join my brother Charlie and his family for dinner at their place yesterday evening, and that was a pleasure I will enjoy for some time to come! I hope some of you may meet Charlie and Hannah one of these days. I'll call this post good with some pictures from our time with them.
