Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Road trip

I have been busy this past month, I wanted to share with you a few pictures I took on the recent trip Gail & I took. My youngest daughter graduated from Central Washington University on June 13th. I invited Gail along for company on the 7 hour road trip. We truly felt like Thelma & Louise on the road in my Chrysler convertible and had a great time. Pj graduated with honors and her family proudly posed with her. She could not have completed her BA without her son Alex who fed, bathed, & cared for Peyton & Mason while Mark worked at his job and Pj worked and went to classes during the day & some evenings. She created a real prize in that one..

On our way home we stopped when & where we wanted and often to capture some great photos. This one of the homestead was taken in Kent Oregon, we pulled off the road and took this great shot, We couldn't help wondering what stories these old walls hold. The old gas station I am sure must have also been a store.

We continued along to the town of Saniko, a small quaint western town trying to stay alive. Fortunately for us, it was a nice day and a few shops were open. We actually crossed paths with another couple of gals from Klamath Falls, they had been antiquing in BC. After talking to them about Mary Jane they have emailed me that they are interested in joining the Klamath falls Charming chicks..* Small world out there*
There were some old buildings with wooden wagons, a jail, and this old truck was parked off off the main front of an old Blacksmith shop of earlier years.
We met a sweet gal minding her shop called the "Ranch Woman.."She painted on barnwood , and a few quaint items for sale. We enjoyed our visit with her.
It was one of many to come days that Gail & I can enjoy as we travel the back roads of Oregon on our way to the Mary Jane Farm Fair July 3rd- 5th. I promise to post lots of pictures.
