Festivals of the Leaves 2019: week 9

Other than the squirrel pictures from Sunday, these are the most recent photos, from our drive to Portland. Mr. G, had another surgery on October 30th. On this day he got his stitches out. We finally experienced the tram car and this was our view.

 

In the future, we will not hesitate to use this method of getting from one place to another. You can follow Dawn Miller, to keep up to date, with what’s what, in our world of Fall leaves and color.

Like a Sponge

On Tuesday my husband had a morning appointment at the Portland, Veterans hospital. Other than driving by Portland we had not visited the city. While Mr.G, went to the various departments, I went outside to try to locate an area where I could get a decent view of Portland. It would have been easier to just go up a few flights, via the elevator, but I chose to brave the cold and wind and go outside. Because of my small town upbringing I get enthused about seeing new sights. I think I mentioned that in yesterday’s post. I absorb the scenery, sights and colors, kind of like a sponge. For my newer readers, I often take photographs while my husband is driving. Reason being is that I don’t want to miss anything interesting. As we drove up to the hospital I noticed water and I got so excited. The rode was windy and there were no full views because of all the trees. By the time we got to the hospital, I was eager to start exploring. I could overwhelm you with what I saw, so instead, I will keep my composure and dole out the photos a few at a time..
