I’ve been down taking pictures along the Oregon Coast and in the Columbia Gorge. I had hoped to get a picture of Mt Hood but it stayed shrouded in clouds.

Final Note

My favourite non-baby pictures from the trip are under “Recent Favourites” at: http://billrfoster.smugmug.com. I’ve had the last one showing Craig climbing the sand dunes printed on art paper and it will be on the wall of the entrance hall to our condo.

Pictures at: London Pics. It’s been cold here – compared to Nanaimo – a cold wind blowing in your face – but no rain and it’s been great. The highlight was the musical “Billy Elliot” – the best musical we’ve ever seen.  We also went to Evensong at Westminster Abbey this evening but you won’t see pictures. If you bring a camera, they won’t let you in….
