Hills, mountains, the valley, the Pacific ocean...(which I haven't been to yet this trip!). We were planning to go to Mount Hood tomorrow, but it's four hours from here. So, a waterfalls and a vineyard...and a visit to an old friend will suffice:)
Today we hung around, went to the grocery store for good stuff for dinner, which was: fresh homemade pasta with a bacon and fresh tomato-basil sauce, and a grilled salad with asparagus and artichoke hearts...yummers. Last night we had steaks with butter and pine nuts, mashed golden potatoes with garlic and parmesan cheese, roasted brussel sprouts.
The pine trees here are huge, it's hilly and there are mountains towering in the distance. As much as I miss my kids back home, and Paul, who is in Singapore, I love it here.
