July 2 = Happy Anniversary!

Today we celebrated our 32nd Wedding Anniversary! The list for traditional or modern gifts skips from 30th to 35th, so I guess we don’t need to give each other gifts for the 32nd! That’s okay, we spent a wonderful day washing the dog and walking around Bend, retreating into the Wine Shop where we enjoyed a few glasses of wine while a thunderstorm raged briefly outside!

June 26 – We Completed the Trail!

We embarked on the Bend Ale Trail a few weeks ago and finally finished it today! It was a grueling trek, but worth every sip!

We picked up the atlas at one of the brew pubs.

June 21 – Summer Solstice

We headed up to the mountains outside Sisters to celebrate the longest day(light) of the year! It was a little overcast at Three Creeks Lake, and the snow was still in evidence as were mosquitoes, but we had fun!

The water was cold but Mavrik doesn't care!
