Jim, Sam, Jack and Annabel...

I was given the pleasure of doing 6 month old pictures of my granddaughter Annabel. She is such a beauty and looks so much like both her momma and daddy... 

I also have a few of the boys.. Wally and I did a camping trip to Castle Rock to help Mel and Sean while they ran the Ash Kicker Obstacle 5K.. (more on that on another post..) 
We watched Jack while they ran...  

Jim, Jack, and Sam..... The boys.. So handsome!

Annabel... our only girl! So Beautiful!!! 

 Annabel is the apple of her daddy's eye!

And then there is Porter.....

Eagles at Sandridge School..

This baby was feeding when I Wally and I found it.. He was with 2 other babies and an adult.. The adult flew to the other field and this guy started flying in circles around the field he was feeding in. I was in the next field which was actually a school playground. He started to fly towards me and actually started to dive at me. All I kept thinking was do I duck??? I didn't but he really got close!!!

Hello everyone...

Been working on cleaning up the blog. I had postings from 2008 that I had to clean up and removed alot of older postings to make room for new more current postings.

So watch for new adventures.. More eagles, places near and far.. not to mention just anything pretty and new!!!

Rhodie 2012

Rhodie Fest

Rhodie is actually called Rhododendron Festival which is held in Florence, Oregon. (love the beach!) 
This is a family fun time festival and many people come from all over to this place. 

For the bikers, it is a time to get together and party..There really is no other way to explain it..

(I love this old timer!! Classic!!!)

Bikers ride from all over..

They ride many different kinds of bikes. These red and yellow bikes are Spiders. I loved the red one.. it is a touring bike. Lots and lots of storage.. I could fit all my camera gear in this bike!! I am actually going to test ride one and see if I like it. This has 2 wheels in the front and one in the back... the trikes have 2 in the back and one in the front. Who knows.. maybe I will actually give up my 2 wheel Harley and get a Spider.. Ironic seeing I really hate spiders!!

Patches are displayed proudly! They represent different groups and clubs in the area and beyond.
They also represent different branches of those who serve this country.. (the patch on the knee above, love it!)

This is a member of the HOG group..

Some people will ride anything with 2 wheels!!

Free Soul...

More patches...

Nap time..

Here they come....
This is the parade of bikes.. When several of the groups come to town.. Nothing specific.. just seems to end up being a parade..
It starts with the Free Souls, and then you will have a mix of different clubs and groups..
Really a site to see all these bikes coming into town at one time..

There on the far left is Mike..  I didn't realize I got him until I was editing these..

Here are my boys.. My Wally and my buddy Paul and his wife Kim..
This guy below lives in Florence. For years he sits at this window and watches and waves at the people going by.

Some of the Clean and Sober guys.. Simon (checking in... ) and I see Ed up there too..

Todd up top and Robert below..

Hi Leroy!!!

Calvin is a Free Soul, but I knew him long before that.. He has always been special to me.. my knight in shining armor..  He would ride with me so I wouldn't have to ride alone.. I didn't like riding with a large group very close and as fast as they go..

He didn't mind riding with a newbie.. It was really good to see him!!! 


Not sure what Kay was thinking about but I couldn't get her attention from across the street..

Hi Mark!!! You are looking good here!!!

The guys.. 

Here we have Robert.. (affectionately called Wilson by everyone..)

Here is Lori and Murphie..  Love them!!
(I will get the honor of photographing their wedding this August!!!)

I have many more pics I wanted to add but it seems I am at my fill of space on this blog.. I will have to post more when I set up my web page..
