I found out last summer, about once a week, it’s necessary to take a day. Give the body and mind some time to rejuvenate.
I woke up in a campground nestled amongst tall mossy trees and low lying ferns near the Cascade locks along the Columbia River. I rode through the gorge; tall strands of waterfalls lined historic highway 30. First bits of water fell from the sky. In less than an hour I arrived in Portland. Off we went for a day to play, my sister and I walked around town and ate. It started with a scrumptious home style breakfast at Cup and Saucer, tantalizing afternoon tea and truffles at Moonstruck Chocolates, then filled up with a hefty burrito at La Bonita. Divine as it was to splurge on such good food today, I know tomorrow will return to the deliciousness twigs and berries.
