After the wedding we had several weeks before we could start on our summer tour, so we started with a little mini trip and we took Indiana along with us. Our first stop was at the Roseburg Wild Animal Safari. We didn’t plan nearly enough time there and we’ll know better next time. Indy was fascinated with the animals just wandering around free. (Well, the lions and tigers and bears, oh my, weren’t wandering around free – for our comfort there were fences with them on the other side.) The llamas were casually strolling down the road, though, and I’m not sure which was a better moment for Indy – watching the llama watching her, or sitting on Dandad’s lap and steering the car
Then we headed for the coast, where we enjoyed the beaches and the Newport aquarium, where Maggie, Shane and Micah joined us to take Indy back home. We missed her after she left us. She was a good traveler.
We went back home for appointments, with every intention of heading off to our Colorado trip in the middle of July, but as these things happen, we had our plans changed when the air conditioners in Cleo decided to go toes up. No one here could get around to fixing it for a month, so we decided to go to Oregon to get the work done. As long as we were there, the Monaco owners group was having a rally at Salem, OR, so we decided to check out our first rally. We had a great time and met a lot of nice people.
We had to go on up to Portland to visit the kids, of course. Couldn’t be that close and not go up there for a couple of days. We entertained Micah. What did you do to your eyes, Dandad????
Indy and I went to the zoo, where there was an exhibit on dinosaurs.
So, there we were at the beginning of August, just a tad past our original schedule. Did it really make sense to stick to the Colorado venture?
