My Little Town, Bend, Oregon

My Little Town

Not a day goes by that I don't send a note of gratitude out for my little town. Natural beauty is everywhere you look; the people are really, really nice; there's always something to do; the tap water tastes better than any bottled water I've ever tried; and bad traffic is when a roundabout backs up about five cars, thus adding 30 seconds onto your seven minute cross-town commute.

Here's a glimpse at some goings-on around town.

From the longest running stage race in North America, the Cascade Cycling Classic

to the Freedom Ride.

What are some of your favorite things about where you live?


  1. Stunning photos!

  2. These pictures are spectacular! Thanks for your comments on my blog post this morning. I like it that we have much in common and that we are keeping in touch. I hope your class in Portland went the way you planned. I have to go and see if you posted about it. Cheers Patti!

  3. Thank you, Catherine. So nice to "see" you again and connect :) I always love reading your blog! My July class in Bend went really well and was so much fun (see post & pics). I'm looking forward to my Portland class in March 2015; and Stitchin' Post this November. Cheers~~
