Cool days and cool nights for the past week. High yesterday was 67 degrees. For Rich's last day in town, it was a driving tour of nearby agricultural lands. A stop was made at the Swan Island Dahlias. Lots of photo ops with a multitude of varieties and colors.
One of many closeups...
Among other claims to fame, the town of Silverton has the distinction of straddling the 45th parallel.
Looks like a good place for a bar called "The Half Way House".
Three balanced meals each day required more ethnic dining. So we headed to Mt Angel for a German themed lunch at the Mt. Angel Sausage Company. Potato pancakes, sausage and beer took care of lunch.
For meal three and for Rich's last meal in town, we headed to Dar Essalam -- a Moroccan restaurant. Excellently spiced four course dinner of lamb shank was a great way to celebrate a great week of dining and exploring.
Never did go hiking. Maybe next time.
