I am feeling rather giddy this morning.. Rain came our way yesterday. I felt as though I held my breath waiting for summer to make it’s departure.  Now I can breathe a sigh of relief and view the effects of yesterdays steady downpour. So being in that giddy frame mind I am sharing more photos from our trip up north.

These photos were taken in the  colorful city of  Astoria, Oregon.  Old Oregon  We haven’t spent a lot of time there but enough for me to capture some interesting aspects of this place.

I am learning how to take a kind of crummy photo and make it into something fun…This is the space Needle in Seattle.

        The plants and I are so very thankful for the rain…
