We had a nice visit with Andrea’s brother Paul near Boise. We don’t get to see him as often as we’d like.
Then it was head toward home. As we came into eastern Oregon, we could see that the season has turned. Much of this trip has been through areas where it is still late summer, but here it is getting ready for winter.
From Paul’s house to ours is over 400 miles, which is a longer day than we like. So we stopped about halfway, in Pendleton. We got here early enough to relax and walk around town a little. But our thoughts have turned to home. We sat in a coffee shop and made lists of what we need to do when we get home tomorrow.
It’ll be nice to see our friends at Rose Villa and to take up our Portland lives once again. I love the road trips, but I also love living where we do. It’s a good life.
