Our Summer in Oregon

Dick got to go to some of Wyatt’s baseball games while I was in Colorado. This one was played at Alpenrose and they won.

Also at Alpenrose they have a Velodrome. This particular day they had races going on. These riders were warming up.

When I got back from Colorado it was time to visit Seaside at the Thousand Trails Park. And we were there for the Annual Beach Volleyball Tournament in July.

Ken & Judy’s Granddaughter was playing in the tournament. So it was fun watching them play. This was the second day.

On another day we went on a road trip with Mike. He showed us where he spent some of his childhood. First stop was the view from Bradley Park.

Then we drove down to Clifton to find the boat landing to Tenasillahe Island where Mike’s grandparents lived.

In August we met good friends Al & Doris in Pacific City for lunch. They were at the TT Park and we were back in Aloha. We ate at the Pelican Pub. Wonderful food and great view.
