New Portland Bridge Named after Chinook word for “people”–OregonLive News
Exploring the back roads of Oregon,
my grandchildren and I end up taking an unexpected Ferry Ride
across the Williamette River.
Quite a new experience for all of us!
Later, we share thoughts, ideas and memories
as we eat lunch in a small bakery named “Leona’s”,
so named for anothers’ grandmother,
in this little town of Mt. Angel,
surrounded by vineyards and Mission State Park,
where some of Oregon’s earliest settlers lived and worked
at the Williamette Mission nearly 170 years ago.
There was a lot of history all around us just waiting to be discovered,
and our four curious minds, sought it out,
as we enjoyed spending the day together,
making history of our own.
