This morning my mom and I were faced with a multiple choice question:
(a) Go to church
(b) Clean our respective houses
(c) Read the newspaper while enjoying a cup of coffee
(d) Head out on a road trip
We opted for (d) as the beautiful weather ruled out (a), (b), and (c).
We did a loop on country roads passing through small towns (some of which we had never visited before). My camera behaved better today. I decided if it is incredibly bright and sunny outside AND the object being photographed in no way moves, the camera can handle the job.
Anyway, here's one of the views from the road (ooh, ooh, my blog name!). (That's Mt St Helens off in the distance -- the sky was a bit hazy).
The little town of Vader decorates their jail with flowers:
(Actually I don't think it is really a jail anymore.)
Here's the river in Pe Ell, Washington. We heard Doc Severinsen in concert in Seattle and he said he grew up in Pe Ell, but he might have been pulling our collective leg.
And here's my mom outside the restaurant where we had lunch:
Yep, it was a nice day. I'm glad we opted for choice (d).
