Almost gone…

We are still in Eugene, Oregon area. We are almost ready to move back to the coast for our scenic meander south. Just one more appointment for Homey and off we will go.

While Homey is being worked on we have been busy spending our days doing errands, eating at our favorite restaurants and going out for a few walks and mushroom forays.

We love the Saturday last week we went to check it out.

The Mushroom guys were there..
