Then we went out into Minto island to the MIG food cart (Minto Island Growers), a favorite spot. Good food in a lovely outdoor setting. After that, J.E. had an appointment for an opthalmological procedure. So we went to the Kaiser Permanente building and waited. Ellen drove home afterward because J.E.'s eyes were dilated. I rested while Ellen went to another old post card place (which claimed to have 15 000 old cards!). Then we had a lovely salmon salad supper on the deck followed by a good walk on the nearby Oregon State Hospital grounds - reminiscent for me of summers I spent working in state mental hospitals in 1952 and 1955, where they had similar, classic Kirkbride buildings. Another perfect day weather-wise and an interesting one to boot.
Tomorrow we head back to Boise.
