Hello November

October flew by way too fast.
I do hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween.

As you are reading thi,s we have said goodbye to Portland, Oregon
 and we are on our way to Washington State.

I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to go to Washington
this time of year.  They say it's the rainiest month of the year.
But I got me some new rain boots and I am ready.
Bring on the rain!

Not only will we be visiting friends while we are in Washington,
we will be working...  Yep you heard me right we are going to be campground
host for the whole month of November.
I'm just wondering how many people will be out camping this time of year,
I guess we will find out!


I thought I would share some random photos of our time in Oregon.
After all it  is
Random Five Friday.


 Everything about this Banner makes me Happy..




 I sure am going to miss this little guy.




So many leaves..
I wouldn't want the job of cleaning all these up.




My favorite part of Downtown Portland is
the Saturday Market Place and Powells book store. 
If you are ever in Portland these two things are a must.




I got to go trick-or-treating with my grandson.
It was so fun to watch him get so excited to get all the candy.
He was Happy-Happy that's for sure.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
I really do appreciate all your comments.

Till next time

Hugs~

Powell's Book Store was one of the places my son visited during his trip to Portland and he wears the T Shirt often. :)

So sorry to see you moving on, Linda, but I know you must. Glad you had Halloween with Myles, that was always the most fun time with Colin! Looking forward to seeing Washington! Best of journey to you my friend.

Gorgeous captures of your moments in Portland. Your grandson is beautiful. How did you end up as camp hosts? That's awesome!!

TexWisGirl said...

myles is so cute! good luck being hosts! sure hope it will be an easy month for you up there!

Carol Blackburn said...

Your grandson is so adorable and I bet not like the cowardly lion at all. He looks very outgoing; what a great smile.
I hope you enjoy the month of camp. Doesn't sound much like work at all. You will probably meet some hardy folk who love the great outdoors. I bet there are some great photos and stories to come.
Stay safe!

Hi Linda and welcome neighbour! I'm just in Vancouver across the border for November before I head back to the UK for December. Your little grandson is so cute in his lion costume; I hope he had a great night and there was loads of candy involved. Have a fantastic November in Washington. I love to visit down there and know it's lovely any time of the year. :)

Karen said...

Your grandson is a sweetie!

Breathtaking said...

Just gorgeous shots of your grandson having fun.:) Hope you also have fun, and it's not all work and no play!

Those golden leaves are spectacular! We are far behind with
autumn colour here.
Keep well.

augcott said...

What wonderful shots!!!
Your grandson is adorable ... glad you got to spend some time with the little guy.
Safe trip to Washington .... enjoy it!

First, I want to say how much I love the new site design. Very clean and fresh. Good job!

Saying goodbye to Portland was difficult, I'd imagine. It's an area of the country I've grown very fond of since my daughter lives there. It certainly is a place for beautiful photography and you did not disappoint! The one of your grandson is extra special.

Hope your new gig gies smoothly in WA. Safe travels, my friend!

W. Latane Barton said...

It will be interesting to see how many people do camp in November.. and that far north. Brave souls did they do. Far braver than me.

Kim Stevens said...

It's always such a joy to come and see what you are up to Linda...your photos are so fabulous (that black and white street photo -love), and the grandson throwing leaves (precious). You know, if it's not raining sideways when you get to Washington, put on your boots, open your umbrella and click away - it's fun! ( I shot in the rain at a football game from the sidelines, and it was so much fun.)

Until next time, Kim

Crafting Queen said...

What a wonderful set of photos. Hope your new adventure will be a great one.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What a fun time you're having there with family to 'play' with! Love your photos of the trees. And I don't know why...but I never imagined Portland as being such a big city! Have a fun weekend!

Tanya Breese said...

i enjoyed your photos and what fun to be a camp host!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Those yellow leaves are just gorgeous! But I wouldn't want to be on the clean up crew either haha. Good luck with your travels to Washington!

Barb said...

What a cutie your grandson is - such a great smile. Have fun in Washington. When we visited OR in the spring, all it did was rain. It can't be worse in Washington, can it? Safe trip.

It's me said...

What a sweettie...lovely pictures...happy weekend...x !

Sue Lelli said...

Where did October go? Love your random five. I don't think I could have left that sweet little grandson! Your photos, as always, are AWESOME!

Audrey Pettit said...

My gosh, could he be any cuter??? LOVE that little lion costume to pieces! Just totally melts my heart!
Exciting to hear you are off for a new adventure for the month. Can't wait to hear and see more of what's in store!

Good to see you back here again, thanks for the wonderful photos and the updates! Have fun working!

I'd say you've captured fall beautifully in your nature photos. The one way street in Portland reminds me of New Orleans. Be safe on your new trek. Hugs!

Such wonderful photos of undoubtedly wonderful memories. Your grandson is absolutely precious!

Becca said...

Oo I just love all the pictures you take of Myles...he's too cute! Also, that bunting is pretty, did you make it? I've been wanting to crochet one. Welcome to Washington my friend! Looks like November weather has welcomed you this morning too! Oh well...look ahead to less stormy days and fun!

Lisa Gordon said...

Sure wouldn't catch me camping at this time of year, but I'll bet there are lots of folks who do. This sounds like it will be a fun thing to do for the month!! :-)

I am so glad you got to go trick-or-treating with this sweet little guy. He sure is the cutest little lion I ever did see!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend. xo.

Ida said...

Your Grandson is just so cute. Loved that Lion costume.
Depends on which side of the state your on for Rain in November. Although it is raining here today but we don't get as much as the Western Side of the state. Where will you be staying?

Cindy said...

I enjoyed seeing your random five, I love the happy banner! Yes, you will miss your little grands,. I always do when I don't see them for a while, but thankfully I do get to see them at lest once a year. That is a blessing!

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Hello sweetie, what a beautiful happy post. Made me smile a big smile. Sweet boy your grandson is. Happy little fellow :) Great photos as always. Wishing you a wonderful time in Washington and as a campground host. Safe trip! Hugs, Wendy

S. Etole said...

That little grandson is such a cutie. I sure do enjoy my two.

Nadine_Feldman said...

What a cute little guy! Love the photos!

We moved to Washington State a year and a half ago from Texas and are loving it. I hadn't visited Portland until just a few months ago, and we had a great time. We're on the Olympic Peninsula, so we get about half the rain that Seattle gets, so it's not too bad...depends on where you are in the state. Hope you have a good time!

Julie said...

Hi there Lovely Linda, It's been lovely browsing back over the last few posts, time flies and I didn't realise it had been so long since my last visit.Haven't we missed your birthday already? Well, being as how much I love bunting,you can guess why I chose to comment here, it sure makes me happy and how gorgeous your purrfect little man looks as a lion, had me smiling ear to ear! Looks life is treating you pretty good! Have a lovely week, catch up again soon, Julie.x

Myles got so big! He is REALLY cute too! Great pics as always, my friend.
