Catherine has always called small car washes "buggy washes." In Jacksonville, there is a true buggy wash. Catherine was using the right name after all.

Jacksonville, Oregon. A beautiful "old west" town in the midst of the forest. We came through here on our way to I-5 after a wonderful weekend at Sturm Ranch/ 5 Aces Farms. We even got to take home a jar of honey from the bee hives mentioned earlier. We had a great time, and are now moving on to the next leg of our trip.

On our way to Portland we stopped for a picnic lunch at the little town of Myrtle Creek. Myrtle Creek is one area known for covered bridges. The first bridge pictured is a driving bridge, but the second is for pedestrians only. We had a nice lunch, but while we were eating two police cars arrived, and the officers spoke to a man who was in the park. No arrest was made, and we both wonder what happened, though we will probably never know. It did make lunch a bit more interesting. Unfortunately, we have no pictures of the incident.

Stopped at Dutch Brothers' Coffee, which is ubiquitous in Southern Oregon. Catherine got a "children's" size smoothie, only wanting a small treat. She didn't realize that it would come in a giant crayon cup.

Before arriving in Portland, we stopped at Mt. Angel Abbey/ Seminary. This is where Catherine's brother Michael went to college, and which we hadn't visited since Michael's graduation. The picture above is a view of the seminary on the mountain from afar.

Some views of Mt. Angel Abbey and Seminary. It is a beautiful place; very peaceful and beautiful.

St. Mary's church in Mt. Angel. Unfortunately it was closed, but it is beautiful from the outside.

Appetizers and samples at Hopworks Urban Brewery, an organic brewery/ restaurant that was recommended to us. Everything was excellent.

We've heard a lot about this place. It has been featured on Food Network, etc. we bought doughnuts to try tomorrow morning.

A cozy room at the end of a fun day.
