Vacation this summer was a trip to visit my dad in Oregon, in a town so small the post office second-guesses me when I try to send mail there. It’s lovely! (If you don’t think too hard about the subduction zone and imminent earthquake/tsunami disaster. Fortunately, we didn’t see that article until we were already there.)
It was a very relaxing trip, starting with a few hours in Powell’s in Portland before heading to the coast.
We also visited the tiny local library, which is open even on weekends!
We read some picture books in the children’s room.
Reading, walking, eating, and sleeping – all while escaping some particularly hot and humid days back east – makes for a pretty good summer vacation.
