My Vacation In Pictures

This past Thursday I had the wonderful opportunity to fly north to visit my cousin and her husband in Portland, Oregon. The next morning we left him at home, picked up my aunt and drove to Manzanita, Oregon where we met my other cousin and my first cousin's daughter.  No genealogical chart to illustrate the connections today but I'll just say that I was so fortunate to spend 2 1/2 days with three generations of the best women on the planet.  (To clarify, the aunt I am referring to is my father's oldest sister.) The five of us spent the weekend enjoying all types of weather, many trips down to touch the water, stories about my father and their family, children, work, food, food and more food.

I barely slept and completely ignored all of the reading material I had - the draw of watching the ocean and visiting with my family were too strong.  Sleeping and reading I can do later.

Because of time constraints, just pictures in this post - listen for descriptions of my trip in my next podcast.





















The beach house, the gentle roar of the waves crashing and the changes in the sky were so enjoyable but the time with my family was priceless. Love them all so much and I am so very lucky to be a part of their family.

Enjoy your Tuesday!
Susan  


P.S. - My Tuesday at the {Summer} Table is coming up a little later this morning with more detail from my trip.
