Making Memories: A Saturday Drive In Oregon
My plan today was to get something done around the house but I was letting my day get away from me as usual and I was getting nothing done. My sister called me out of the blue and insisted that I go for a drive with her to take photos and enjoy the beautiful sunny day. I'm so glad she did! We would take our cameras and go see what we could see!
Along the way we pondered why people don't take "Sunday Drives" like they used to. I think most families did it in the 1950's and 1960's. It's such a fun thing to do with friends or family along for the ride. I get cabin fever this time of year so today was a welcome reprieve from the long winter!
We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area. Linn County, Oregon. There are lakes, rivers, creeks, streams and a reservoir within minutes in almost any direction. We live in the Willamette Valley with it's rich farm land and we have the Cascade Mountain Range too! It's not far to the beach, mountains or high desert. It truly is a beautiful place to live.
We made the loop from Lebanon to Brownsville, through Holley to Sweet Home and back to Lebanon. We stopped every so often to take a few photos. We only spent a few hours on the road but it was fun and relaxing!
These are some of the many photos I took along the way....
