Walla Walla, WA. A city they loved so much, they named it twice.
We took a short motorcycle trip today, logging 132 miles to Walla Walla, taking a route I've never been on before. I love those lonely country roads nobody else takes. We only had to slow down once for a pair of deer to cross the road. Mercy, they are such fearful animals but so cute when they hop like bunnies through the fields.
We stopped to share a sandwich in Walla Walla and then headed home with a nice, long rest at the bird refuge. If my card reader was working properly, I'd have some fun pics to post. We saw 11 turtles resting on a log today catching some rays. A sight I have never seen before. They managed to all fit on the log by pigging-backing each other which made it look like they were playing leap frog. I think nature is amazing when I see things like this. We also saw a gazillion yellow finches and another beautiful orangy-yellow songbird I have yet to identify. I don't fancy myself as a true bird watcher but maybe with a few more years under my belt and nothing else to do, I could get into it. I shot some pics and maybe I'll get them posted soon.
It was a nice, short ride considering we are running at $8.20 a gallon every time we both roll. Yikes. The weather could have not been more perfect.
Hope you did whatever it is you love to do on a Sunday afternoon. It's back to work for me today!
