101 Coast

We decided we needed to check out some southern parts of the Oregon coast. The sand dunes next to the ocean were super cool. The cliffs with the fog were spooky. The covered bridges were a surprise. Lovely weekend.

Pack Hiking Doggy

We're currently training Gypsy and getting her ready for her two upcoming pack hikes that are each 10 miles. I'm going to attempt to do the easier one with her and Blake, but Blake and Gypsy will be flying solo on the harder one for sure. Hopefully we'll all be successful and she'll eventually get her pack dog title. I know, go on and laugh. Mostly I just think she is so darn cute in pack. You know you do too!! Results to follow...

Flowers & Visitor Take 22

The Rose Garden was absolutely gorgeous this past August and it smelled wonderful! We also went to the Dahlia festival again for more free weekend entertainment. We met a little squirrel in the Rose Garden who was just too funny! SQUIRREL!!!!!!

My friend Kelly was in town from MA and she stayed with us for the evening. It was her first visit to Portland and she was a really fun and easy visitor. We took Gypsy on a little hike, had lunch in downtown, saw Inception and just hung out. It nice how free the weekend felt without any schedule to follow and I hope she'll come back soon, because not only do I love her, Gypsy thinks she is the best "toy" ever! Too bad I was lame and didn't get any pictures!
