SOOOOO…. I am BACK in Port Orford, Oregon for the summer. I’d planned on going to the east coast this summer but, just in case I was needed by my sister in Tucson, the distance from here is definitely more doable. (Making the 5200+ mile round trip from NH would NOT have made Teddy happy – and driving 5 days straight, staying for an uncertain amount of time, then driving back 5 straight days would not have made ME happy OR my checkbook.)
I do have to say that being back in Port Orford is no hardship! Teddy is loving running on the beach again without fear of cactus, thorny seed pods, or biting ants. (Hopefully his Valley Fever will disappear again too.) The weather is rainy but it IS spring and this too shall pass. I’ll take 55° and rainy over 100° and sunny every day! Luckily it doesn’t rain here much in the summer.
Before I left Tucson, I stopped up at the Catalina State Park to view their wildflower bloom and thought I’d share a few of those photos. I also stopped at Joshua Tree National Park on the way here and took a few pictures of their wildflowers. Enjoy!
