Salem, OR

DAY TWENTY (Friday, July 12th): J.E. left early for a day-long bike trip, so we slept late and had breakfast on J.E.'s lovely deck behind her house and hung out, did a wash, and then went to meet Bonnie Hull for lunch at the Lord and Schryver house. Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver were early-to-mid-20th-century landscape architects who designed over 250 gardens in the Northwest. One of their gardens - Deepwood - is already a Salem shrine, but now their own house and garden have been purchased by the L&S Conservancy and a fund drive has started to restore the garden, which has been neglected for years. Bonnie has been spending time there doing drawings and we brought a picnic lunch to her there.

Lunch at the Lord & Schryver garden

After lunch we went to Silver Falls State Park, Oregon's premier park. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time exploring the park.

Friday evening we all had supper at the Hulls.

DAY TWENTY-ONE (Sat., July 13th): We went to the Farmer's Market, had lunch at Minto Farm, went to the Hallie Ford Museum with Roger and Bonnie, and had supper on J.E.'s deck. I'll supply photos when I get a chance. Right now I've got to get moving - it's Sunday a.m., another beautiful day, and we're heading up to Astoria, OR (Lewis & Clark N.P.), and Randle, WA (Mt. Rainier N.P. and Mt. St. Helen's N. V. M.) More later!!
