After leaving the Best Quilt Shoppe In The World, we headed south. Polly had a little gig in Eagle Point Oregon with some rug hooking chums and I went along as driver and teaching assistant. While Portland Oregon might be named Rose City - this little town of Jacksonville Oregon had some lovely roses going on too. We stopped there for a coca-cola break and to do a little shopping. When at our destination in Eagle Point, we could see Mt. Hood from our hotel parking lot. (can you believe the photographic brilliance of this shot?)
After a little drive, we seemed to be on a mountain too! This was the view from the workshop window.We had a lovely day with charming and talented rug hookers. We also had a little visitor.This was taken through the screened window of a deer just hangin' out in the driveway.
What else can we say about the trip? It was grand! Oh, and as official driver of the Minick and Simpson team, I can say that Oregon drivers are the best. You fellow Michigan drivers who must traverse 275 and 696 on a regular basis will appreciate this...... Oregon drivers stay at 65 miles per hour or under and don't drive diagonally from lane to lane. Craziness!!
