Spring is Coming to Oregon

Spring is Coming to Tillamook at least some days it seems so.  Mauricio and I made a drive up the river to visit friends and family in The Dalles and spring was just arriving there.

P3270026

We discovered that the Cherry Blossoms were just coming into Bloom near The Dalles.  We also took a walk on the Riverfront Trail along the river, (The children rode bicycles and the adults walked.)   Spring was just getting started here as the buds were about ready to spring into life on the branches of the trees along the waters edge.

After the ride the three children enjoyed a frolic in the park where we had parked the car.

Gretchen and some of her coworkers ran the Three Capes Relay Marathon yesterday.  It was a beautiful day and the course ran thru many parks along the coast.  I was invited to ride in the car and take photos.
