Great Trip, Home And I Lost Something

Portland was awesome—it was sad to see the dry landscape—I’ve been to Portland many times and remember the lushness of the landscape.  The road side grass is dried out and brown, the rivers and creeks have little water, some are not flowing.  Drought conditions without a doubt!

What I didn’t remember was the traffic—awful!  We enjoyed some great meals, visited a fabulous grocery store, New Seasons Market—what I wouldn’t give to have that kind of grocery store in our neighborhood--and did a lot of shopping and sightseeing.




IMG_2886We visited the Tillamook Cheese factory as did many, many other people that day!

IMG_2889IMG_2891We had lunch in Cannon Beach right across the road from Haystack Rock.

IMG_2916IMG_2922And there was even a quilt shop participating in the Row by Row shop hop in Cannon Beach.


Sunday we headed to the airport and went our separate ways—I arrived home about 6pm, exhausted!  I think I was so tired I just could not fall asleep—about 1am I thought, “where is my iPad??”  I have no idea why I suddenly remembered the iPad might not be in my bag—I got up, searched the house and the car—no iPad, I must have left it in the seat back pocket.  What a bummer—I filed a missing item report with Delta, the iPad is password locked—we will see what happens. 


  1. Ha Ha! You went to Cannon Beach for the quilt shops, and I would have gone to see the birds on Haystack Rock!

  2. Wishing you good luck with your IPad. Your pictures brought back some great memories.

  3. Good grief, I sure hope you'll get your iPad back. Big loss if you don't even if it is locked.

  4. Your "day trips" are like our "month trips" LOL. Total bummer about the iPad. I really hope you get it back!

  5. Glad you had such a nice trip:) Our daughter put her iPad beside the seat and forgot it on a flight to see us. The airline found it and she had it two days later!! They should have it for you:)

  6. Oh gosh! I sure hope your iPad is found and returned.

  7. We loved driving on the sand at Canon Beach, such a beautiful place. Haven't gotten over to Portland yet, so sad to hear it's dry as well. Washington is feeling the drought as well and it's depressing to see the rivers so low and no fishing. It the airline found the IPad they may have also turned it in to the airport where you landed. If so it is usually not in their system. I'd also call security at the airport to double check.

  8. I hope you locate it. My sister lost her prescription Raybans at the Billings airport and after searching through 4 fins of glasses there we still were not able to locate them.
