off the farm for the day!

Baptist church, built in 1858

Methodist church, built in 1886. The little white building to the left of the church contains the outhouses, still in use!

Can not identify the birds, but loved their perch. You can see the bird in the nest if you look closely.

The farmer and the three youngest farm children

Loved these geese!

View of the lovely Willamette Valley!
We went for a lovely drive yesterday. The farmer has always insisted that no work be done on Sunday, and for this I am so grateful. We really do need a day of rest, need to go to mass together, and need a day to spend together without the pressures and busyness of farm life!


  1. That is exactly why He instituted a Sabbath rest!! I'm so glad that you enjoyed yours. And what a beautiful quiet way and place...

    Blessings, Debbie

  2. What a lovely part of the world! Thanks for stopping by and so sorry to have taken so long to return your visit. Blessings....
