Hello from Blue River, Oregon:



Last month on a drizzly day when we were on our travels up the McKenzie River, we drove to the little town of Blue River.  They have a store, a park, a library, a garage and a few other places there. They have schools there too, but they are way on the other end of the town loop, and we didn't drive that far. 

Some of these pictures are from the park.  The rest were taken when I walked onto the bridge crossing the river.
 













Here is a shout-out to my patient driver and BFH, Cary.  He makes it a lot easier for me to hop out and take my photos.
 




Now, what in the heck is this business below?  It mars the beauty of the fall foliage, if you ask me...
 




Remember, folks ...


I know, I know, I am preaching to the choir!

Sorry that I have been behind on my return visits.  I will be by to see you guys soon.

Hugs,

Kathy M.

The Petting Zoo and More at the Central Oregon Pumpkin Company at Smith Rock Ranch:


One magical part of the pumpkin patch is the petting zoo.  It was closed the morning that we were there, but the animals came over to say hello.  

A picture is worth a thousand words, so I am just posting several thousand words this morning.  It is an easy post, unless you are reading it on your phone.
 





Alpacas are cuddly cute!






The bunnies and ducks were enjoying their down time.  They didn't even look up at us:






The goats and chickens were a different story though ...



I think that the new kids on the block will be arriving soon around here.





Next to the bank, the pony rides are located.
 



 I think that the Camero shoots pumpkins on the weekends.




Next to the pony rides is New York City ... and Godzilla!!!




The corn maze was closed too.  I think that the weekends are the best time to hit this joint.
 


Wait a minute.  I thought that we were in New York City, not San Francisco.  Hummm...


You could still buy pumpkins ...


  ... go to the store ...


 ... and ride on the zoo train:



If you are in the area and get the chance to go, you will certainly enjoy yourself.  Jeri and I sure did.  Please see the post below this one for more photos of our trip to the pumpkin patch.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have a wonderful week ahead.

Hugs,

Kathy M.
