This is the 52 Weeks of Thankfulness – Week 11 at Haddon Musings

My husband I spent Mother’s Day weekend with Mercy and Will in Portland, Oregon. We went to The Salty’s for a seafood buffet brunch on Saturday instead of Sunday.

After brunch, we went to Kelley Point Park and enjoyed our walk in this fresh green park full of sky tall trees. At one corner of the park, we found an old dock with an abandoned anchor.

I am thankful that Mercy has a healthy pregnancy. She and Will are leaving tomorrow to go on a 2-week vacation in Canada before the baby joins their family.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Family Visit Travel

Tuesday Photo Challenge this week is the theme Travel, “Travel does not require it to be far or exotic, but simply any trip to where you do not live.” Frank said.

We have three kinds of travel – sightseeing, relaxing, and visiting family.

Our last trip was for family visit. My husband I spent Mother’s Day weekend with Mercy and Will in Portland, Oregon. We went to The Salty’s for a seafood buffet brunch on Saturday instead of Sunday. We were told that there were 1,800 guests on Sunday. It was such a delight to have window seating; watching the soothing water while eating. The food was delicious and abundant. Each of us made at least three trips to get different kind of food!

After brunch, we went to Kelley Point Park and enjoyed our walk in this fresh green park full of sky tall trees. At one corner of the park, we found an old dock with an abandoned anchor. From the dock, we watched the after rain dramatic clusters of clouds, the lightly lit sky and the somewhat calm river with distant docks and boats.

On Sunday afternoon we went to St. John City Street Fair. Many roads were blocked off of traffic. Vendors from all kind of businesses had their displays in booths, selling their products. Kids were free running around. There were laughers everywhere. All four of us took turn to spin the hula hoop. It was such a relaxing, interesting and enjoying time for families and people in the community.

On our way home, I spotted a nice landscape from the neighborhood. I couldn’t resist taking a photo!
