My niece’s daughter graduated from Ridgefield High School in the State of Washington. My Dad drove up from Lake Almanor, California, to attend. Members on the other side of the family came up from McCloud, California. It was a family weekend and seems everyone had a great time.

Cheyenne has decided to attend Clark College next year to get the basics completed before moving on to university. She isn’t sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Do any of us really know?

On Sunday, Ron and I went downtown Portland to mingle with thousands of people on the last day of Portland’s Rose Festival. Most of those photos were taken with my Holga, Hasselblad X-Pan and a 4×5 pinhole so they will have to be shared after I develop some film.

About gretchen

I love living in the Pacific Northwest being close to the mountains and the ocean. My hobbies include photography, travel, reading, biking, walking and gardening. I am an Anglophile at heart and try to visit the UK often. My camera goes everywhere with me.
