Richard and I spent last weekend in Joseph, Oregon for our anniversary. (Five years!) We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast I found online. Some people are B&B people (me) and some are not (Richard). But I think it’s growing on him… We take turns planning our anniversary. Mine usually involve a B&B and Richard’s usually involve dinner and a movie. Oh well. We can’t afford to travel every year. We were discussing why people drove up and down main street so slowly and then we saw this sign. We were a lot more careful how fast we drove after that. Joseph is small town U.S.A. But very tourist-oriented. Richard and I commented on how many stores and restaurants were closed and I’ve since learned that the economy and gas prices have been hard on tourist communities. So I guess we were just doin’ our part to support the small town folk.
We rented a paddle boat and went for a swim.
This is outside the B&B. The couple who owned it were really great. My favorite part of the B&B experience is the people you meet. It was so nice to get away for a little while. Most of you know how Richard’s job takes him away a bit and this summer it has been so nice to have him around. He hasn’t traveled since May and we’ve tried to capitalize on our time together.
