Welcome

I'm so glad that you stopped by, and hope that you enjoy your visit. Here you will find pieces of my life - quilting, cross-stitch, family, travel, friends.

We live in the eastern end of the beautiful Fraser Valley, about 1.5 hours east of Vancouver, BC. Empty nesters, we have one son living just a few minutes away, our other son and daughter live in Alberta.
Comments are always welcome, always read - and answered if need be. Feel free to share, I love hearing from all my cyber-space friends.

Seaside

Another little community close to Astoria is Seaside.  We arrived to find they were having a Show and Shine, perfect distraction for the men while we women took in a couple of shops:

In one mall, we found a carousel, a real old-fashioned, ride-the-horses carousel.  I thought I was too big to get onto those little horses, but the sight sure brought back childhood memories:

On the beach we found kites:

And another tribute to Lewis and Clark, at the ’End of the Trail’:

The weather has been mostly cool and cloudy throughout the trip, and our evenings have been more indoors than out.  But God seemed to bless us with sunshine at each of our sightseeing stops.  Packing up to leave Astoria, though, was done in a downpour – it was enough to make us wish we were at home.  But southward we headed to see what more glories the Oregon Coast had to offer.
