We enjoyed putting the dog in the car and just taking off to explore.
The only thing I remember that was unpleasant was the lack of rest stops/bathrooms on the long roads to the ocean or mountains. I mean, we all know ... riding in the car .. eventually results in the need for a loo ... not an outhouse with spider webs and possibilities of a snake taking a nap, stores that want you to stop and shop and eat but they don't provide facilities ...
There are so many waterfalls in Oregon !!
And as green as it is wherever you look, there is still more green .. our building had gardens with grass on the roof. The balconies had plants and small potted trees ..
Living in Florida, at the edge of a forest, makes me appreciate those people who thought of the green aspect of the environment as well as how much they could sell their buildings for ..
I am missing New York ... big time.
Speaking of Green. I miss the mountains. I miss Autumn. Summer in NY is pretty fantastic.
Where do you like Summer ? the ocean, home, the mountains ? Autumn ?
