The Long and Winding Road

We’re home now, and I can say that I packed *way too much stuff* to work on during the trip. We had a wonderful time beachcombing, sightseeing in Southwest Washington State and along the Oregon Coast, visiting wineries, lighthouses, restaurants & Woodland Woolworks (you’ve just gotta go there). We spend a lot of time in our truck getting to all these interesting places, and riding in a truck is not a great place to knit, especially if the road is like washboard or has as many turns as the Oregon Coast does. Fairisle and lace knitting were out of the question. I even managed to mess up the garter stitch vest I was working on.

So what I will post today are a few photos that I took along the way, for your viewing pleasure. And in between laundry loads, I will put away the two pounds of roving, spinning wheel, and four knitting projects that I had packed to work on.

We did some beachcombing in Birch Bay, Washington

Visited lighthouses in Washington - the lens is particularly amazing. I believe this lens was part of the North Head lighthouse at Cape Disappointment

Astoria bridge, which crosses the Columbia River dividing Washington from Oregon State

Beautiful pictures. I just love being out here in the Northwest.

Woodland Woolworks is Mecca for fiber people. I have to visit at least 5 or 6 times a year.
