An Oregon Christmas

Relief Map of Oregon

We’ve only been to Oregon in summers, October and March, but this year found us together with both daughters and sons-in-law just outside of Portland for a few delightful December days.

One day took us to the coast, to the far upper west corner of the state to Astoria where we enjoyed lunch at the Rogue Public House before we headed to the ocean. The wreck of the Peter Iredale offered up a lovely photo-op, as did the National Historic Site of Lewis and Clark’s winter spot – Fort Clatsop.

While we were at Fort Clatsop, the rain came down (in typical Oregon fashion), giving us empathy for the 33 people who wintered there in 1805-06.
