The Big Guy and I are on vacation in central Oregon, east of the city of Eugene. This is a lovely farm on the road in to the resort where we are staying. As you can see from the view of the sky, the weather is typical for Oregon. We have been here a week. The first two days were sunny and warm - perfect. Friday afternoon I picked our 'dinner and dominoes every Tuesday' friends up at the airport. It began to rain in the middle of the night Friday. Of course, all the rain keeps the area green and beautiful.
On Tuesday we went to a yoga class - my first in eight years! I was surprised at how flexible I still am! I also really enjoyed the class and will go again tonight. And maybe I will even go to yoga when I get home!
Yesterday the weather was cloudy in the morning but beautiful in the afternoon. The grounds here are beautiful and the Big Guy and Roxy are enjoying all the trails. This area is also rich in fallen branches which he uses for his new hobby, making walking sticks. He has made about eight since we arrived and they are beautiful! Some of the wood has blue streaks in it which are highlighted by his wood butter (last years hobby).
The other spa class available is water aerobics. I went both yesterday and today. Yesterday it wiped me out but today I did much better. What a fun way to get in shape! Maybe I'll move our pool repair higher up on the looooong list of stuff left to do on the house! Or it might be easier to find a class somewhere!
The resort we are at has beautiful gardens but the foxglove in the above pictures grow wild all around! They are droopy because of the rain.
It would be nice for the sun to come out so I could lay by the pool but even if it doesn' it is really good to get away, meet new people and relax!
