Up the Gorge

We went shopping earlier today, then took a nice drive up the Columbia River Gorge. There was some rain, but then it was sunny and beautiful -- with only a few lovely clouds and lots of blue skies.

We listened to one of our more recent playlists all the way up and back -- great songs!

We ended up at Mosier where we stopped to briefly hike the Twin Tunnels trailhead. Actually, we should have quit sooner, considering it was chilly and Marilyn mistressmarilyn is still recovering from her sinus infection. Hopefully she won't have any ill effects, as we headed back fairly soon.

It was great to get a little bit of exercise and LOADS of fresh air -- plus some sun on our skin.

Then we came home and had naps -- and are now playing Zuma. What a lovely, restful weekend...

No photos to share, as I didn't think to take along my camera. We hadn't really made any plan to take a drive, it was just spur of the moment.

I guess Nicole had fun last Friday (March 27) when sister Sue suzy_qp took her and a few friends to Oaks Park to celebrate her birthday (actually March 24) by riding the rides. The kids (being kids) didn't mind the chill or what little rain fell. I guess Sue was pretty miserable, though...

Well, back to Zuma!
