Sunshine with Iris


How did I get this lucky? Sunshine on a late winter weekend afternoon. Can’t let the sun escape without a walk I said to my favorite model. And away we went.

Heading east we strolled by Governor’s Park and then downhill by the wonderful 1950s-styled homes on “Beaver Cleaver” Street.

Then to the north following ever-winding avenues with views over the Willamette River.

On the return loop of the three-mile jaunt we spotted many varieties of colorful flowers in bloom. What a nice outing.
