  • Coolness!!

  • Thanks! :-) @upyanose

  • Thank you! ❤ Yes these are cherry trees. I stopped at the orchard to get some cherries that were already picked, so of course I had to take a pic of the orchard! :-)

  • Wow...there are very many cherry trees around where I live, but no peach trees! So amazing how easy it is to share our trees with one another here on IG. Perhaps you'll share your peach trees? ✨☀✨ @missoullisa

  • Oh right! Okay I will be looking for these to brighten my winter during your summer! ✨☀✨😄 @missoullisa

  • A very good homage for the harvest working, no?

  • Yes it looks like quite a task for fill up those boxes!!! @kozmiclady

Strolling around a different town sure brings me a fresh perspective!

If you have followed my feed in the past, you might remember that I have posted many photos from the beautiful Oregon/Pacific coast. Here is a photo from a different ocean that I had never been to before until last summer. Last summer was my first visit to Maine where I found lots of beauty and magic. This is one of my favorite photos from there.

This, I believe, is a Pelton wheel which I found located right by the Pelton Shed pictured in my previous post. Here’s what wikipedia has to say about the Pelton wheel: “Nozzles direct forceful, high-speed streams of water against a rotary series of spoon-shaped buckets, also known as impulse blades, which are mounted around the circumferential rim of a drive wheel—also called a runner. As the water jet impinges upon the contoured bucket-blades, the direction of water velocity is changed to follow the contours of the bucket. Water impulse energy exerts torque on the bucket-and-wheel system, spinning the wheel; the water stream itself does a "u-turn" and exits at the outer sides of the bucket, decelerated to a low velocity. In the process, the water jet's momentum is transferred to the wheel and hence to a turbine.” #peltonwheel #opalcreek #jawboneflats #miningtown

Jawbone Flats is truly #offgrid and relies on the creek for power. At one point while I was there this past weekend, some of the power had to be shut off due to a malfunctioning generator. It all made for an amazing and surreal experience! Here’s more info about how electricity is generated at this special place taken from the #opalcreek website: “Today we use a Pelton wheel to produce most of our energy. Unlike a traditional water wheel that extracts energy from the weight of the water passing through it, the Pelton wheel is an impulse turbine, extracting energy from the force of the water’s movement. This means in low water years we’re sure to experience power outages in the summertime when camp is full and demand is high, but we often find ourselves with more power than we need in the wintertime, when the creeks are high but camp is empty.”

For the past two days I had the privilege of staying here at #jawboneflats nestled inside the #opalcreekwilderness for an amazing art retreat #paintingintheancientforest. The only way to access this #offgrid place of wonder is by hiking in 3.1 miles through the old-growth forest.

Two days ago, before the rains finally started, my son and I drove to downtown Portland. Even to this day, I am fearful of driving into the downtown area of this big city but the promise of many free maps to use for my craft projects lured me. The promise of having doughnuts at this iconic place lured my son into going with me. This wall of golden shimmery bricks made me stop to pause and click. It was a very successful mini adventure for my son and me!

It was hard to get a good photo as I was on the other side of the fence but you can see how cute these alpacas are @belladonna_aka. Alpacas are raised for their fleece. I bought some while I was at this farm and will later spin it into yarn.

This I snapped in an unexpected place…an alpaca farm. I was there to buy some fleece (I am developing a new interest in fiber and spinning @memorablefibers) and to visit the adorable alpacas! My love of capturing images that catch my attention will always be with me though. Thank you @ojay1963 for the encouragement to keep posting here!

Of the many photos I took here at #woodenshoetulipfarm, this is my favorite I think. Even though I have lived in Oregon for over 30 years, this was my first trip here and I was shocked at how many others also wanted to be here in the sunshine even though spring break is over.

Last week the lure of warm sunshine drew me to the Oregon coast. This was one of the last photos taken with my Nikon before a sneaker wave ended its career. My iPhone also got destroyed, but I am very thankful to be able to tell the tale!

The colors of the boxes intrigued me, so I couldn't resist pulling over to snap this scene. Turns out that bees are in these boxes so I left in a hurry! The field of clover should have clued me in!

Finally I got to see some snow this winter driving to this wonderful lodge on Mt. Hood. Oregon USA did not get their fair share of snow this winter as the eastern part of USA got it all.
