Portland Rose Festival

We had fantastic seats for the parade. We watched the parade in the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The picture below is the very first entry in the parade. We were seated across the stadium so we got to see the parade first. We were inside so it didn’t matter if it rained.

Heading Home

Today finds us heading back towards California and home. We have a stop to make later this afternoon to visit Kathe (who authors It’s a Snap !) and her hubby Russell along with the owner of the house, Miss Lucy. Miss Lucy is their four legged feline. I fell in love with Miss Lucy long ago as I’ve fallen in love with so many kitties around the world.

Portland Yacht Club

Thursday is a full day of activities. We start our meetings off at Portland Yacht Club, along with a wonderful lunch. I’m looking forward to seeing another yacht club in a different state.

Angel & Isabella

This morning finds us traveling north to visit Sharla and her two kitties. Sharla is the author of BeadedTail. I used to lurk at her site because she had three adorable babies. There was Sadie a beautiful Husky, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2012, and her two kitties Angel and Isabella.

Seven Feathers Casino

Today finds us on the road heading toward our destination of Portland Oregon for the Rose Festival. Our first stop is Seven Feathers Casino Resort. This is a regular stop each year when heading for Portland. It is our first time. We aren’t gamblers, but a fine meal and a nice bottle of wine works for us.
