6,000 miles and worth every minute

 Did I drive 6,000 miles to see the high plateau desert of Eastern Oregon?

To play on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean with my dog?

To ohh and ahhh over the rocky Oregon coast?

Or the California coast?

Or maybe take photos out of the truck window of red stripped cliffs in New Mexico?

While we had an excellent time at all these places the real reason we drove 6,000 miles was to watch our youngest child launch into his future.

And to celebrate that future with our family.


PS: Aren't these two the cutest thing?


  1. Of course you'd do that. How absolutely fabulous!!!!!!

  2. WOW!! What a trip!! And family time too!!

    1. Kathy,

      We were on some roads that I wouldn't have recommended for you. Lots if cliffs.

  3. Worth every last mile! You have a handsome family! :)

  4. That is a LOVELY family. I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip!

  5. Lovely photos. Any chance you can be a bit specific. It's truly one of the joys of the 2.0 internet that you can zoom to ground level for a nosy. I don't really give that much of a hoot about towns but landscape can be magnificent. The NW coast is much more like Spain than I'd ever have thought.

    Well done to young Grey Anatomy. And to doth of you for cooking him to this stage as Judge Judy would say.

    And what the flying 5%^&*( has that chick in the last photo on her head.

    1. cold and windy at Newport, Oregon so Val is wearing a hoody.
