Somehow, I’ve gotten three posts out of one day on our vacation.  We started at Cape Perpetua and Thor’s Well before heading the Heceta Head Lighthouse.  In the afternoon, we headed down to Bullard’s Beach State Park, where my husband had heard he could find some fun rocks (not much luck).  My son, however, found […]

One of our favorite things to do in the summer is visit the Washington County Fair.  I grew up attending the Oregon State Fair in my hometown, Salem…but it’s expensive, crowded, and unchanged in over 3 decades.  The Washington County Fair is like a smaller version of the State Fair, but is free and is […]
