Back from camping...can I go back already?

We had a wonderful few days camping at the Deschutes river. We saw rattlesnakes, big horn sheep, mule deer, and of course steelhead salmon. So yummy! Also, there were blackberries growing everywhere, beautiful birds, and warm weather. Life was pretty simple. I wish it was always that way. I only took pictures with my phone so the photos are a little blurry.

Off Camping at Deschutes!

I am off to go camping in less then 8 hours at the Deschutes River! I am so excited to go camping for the first time since I was in my teen years. Whoo-hoo! There will be stars and smores and yummy fresh fresh from the river. Very excited in you can't tell. The only downside is not having a real shower for a few days- I mean there is swimming in the river but not exactly the same...

A Perfect Summer Day at Sauvie Island

We went to Sauvie Island this weekend just outside Portland. In addition to having beaches that aren't to crowded there are also farms to pick fresh raspberries, blueberries, and marionberries. The weather was warm and sunny. Perfect.

We also visited Kruger's market.

We enjoyed burgers, corn on the cobb straight from their field, and beer out of a bus by Captured by Porches:

The kind of summer day I will dream about during winter.
