I Enjoyed a Wonderful Trip!

I recently returned from a really fun 5 day road trip visiting my dear friend, Ann, in North Bend; my wonderful big sister, Connie, in Grants Pass; and my collegiate grandson, Tyler, in Ashland! It was a lot of driving, but worth every moment of it. While in Coos Bay I was able to attend my old book club where we discussed Ivan Doig’s final novel, Last Bus to Wisdom. I loved the book, and it was so great to be able to talk about it with many old friends. Ann and I talked non-stop as we got caught up on our busy lives during our 2 days together. The weather cooperated and gave us a chance to visit Shore Acres and hike along the cliff. Next I visited my sister and enjoyed a great visit sharing so many health and beauty secrets that I came away feeling totally rejuvenated. It was fantastic and a great way to begin the New Year! Finally I got down to Southern Oregon State College in Ashland and saw Tyler at his college dorm, met his roommate and enjoyed a lovely day walking the campus and downtown and sharing lunch. He’s doing very well in his freshman year adjusting to college life. He’s always a joy to see.

Now that I’m home and reflecting on the trip, I think it was the perfect way to begin the year.
