Quinn loved it! Take a look:
|Just one of many holes she dug and then stuck her nose into!|
After a couple of hours the beach began to get crowded with people and dogs and the retractable leash got to be a problem (I don't trust her off leash in places she's never been but could run for miles!) so we headed to the truck. The people on the beach were just a few of the folks in town! They were driving around and around looking for parking spaces and when we hit the highway it was bumper to bumper, stop and go traffic for several miles in either direction!
I had planned (sort of) to head to Scio, OR next as my great-grandfather is buried there but that would have meant 2 days on two lane roads (slow, slow) and I just didn't have it in me. (Besides, I'm planning to meet Jim and Joanne in Sisters next year for the Quilt Festival and it's not to far from there. Oh, I'm flying and renting a car! Jim wants to go to Scio as well, I think, since it is his grandfather and he has other family buried there.) I programmed Sam for HOME and let her lead the way.
We settled in for the night at Pendleton, OR (Yes, home of Pendleton Woolen Mills-no factory outlet, darn it) Watched night fall on the prairie and horses being trained before we hit the sack.
