On Tuesday we got up, had breakfast and then drove to Bend for a little day trip. It was only about an hour away from Cove Palisades Park.
We went to Tumalo Falls Park to hike. We tried to hike it a few years ago in the winter and it was too windy. It was nice to do in the summer!
There were a couple different trailheads at the parking lot. We did the one next to the viewpoint. I can’t remember now what it’s called. But it’s a very short walk from the parking lot to a nice view of the waterfall and then a short trek up a hill to the top where there is another viewpoint.
The trail is dusty and sandy but overall pretty easy. Once you leave the viewpoint area you hike along a creek and then into the trees. We didn’t go very far because of Logan and the time of day. We wanted to stay on schedule for lunch.
After our hike, we went into Downtown Bend for lunch. We went to the new Boneyard Pub! The last time we were in Bend they hadn’t finished it yet. It was cool to see! They had outdoor seating that was dog friendly, so that was perfect!
I got the poke bowl for lunch, which was REALLY delicious! One of the best I’ve had outside of Hawaii.
I went off the diet for the day so I could have my beer. 😀
Got the growler filled (had to deal with some house stuff since we had cell service in Bend) and then headed back to the cabin. The rest of the afternoon was chill. I read a lot and enjoyed my beer. Michael took a nap. Logan played. Dinner was hot dogs. Exciting!
Wednesday morning we had breakfast and packed up the car and drove home. It was kind of a bummer to leave. We enjoyed our time so much! We made some really happy memories and we hope to go back again next year. Logan had so much fun and it made me really happy to see how happy and dirty he was!
When we pulled into our driveway we got the phone call from our realtor that our house was officially SOLD! What a HUGE relief and one less thing to worry/stress about!!!
We celebrated with carbs and champagne!
