We are off to attend this second annual fly fishing outing in Redmond Oregon, hosted by Susan's club member Rene and Tim at their home. Susan will be enjoying fishing on some of the local rivers with a few other members as I search for cycling options.
The day after Susan's last day of school, we were loaded up (Susan did all the loading up work) with bikes, fishing gear, and camping stuff. Susan has done a fantastic job of making a cot-like bed of plywood for the van so we don't need to do "real" camping ;'-)

We spent a big part of Wednesday shopping at ALL the outdoor clothing and equipment stores at the outlet in Woodburn, OR! This is one of Susan's favorite activities when school is over for the year -- and she was in heaven with the number of those stores that are here. (But I think I am the one who bought the most.)
We drove on to Camp Sherman which is just before reaching Sisters, OR, and picked the perfect campground and spot for the night.
Next morning we drove down along the river and had the majestic Ponderosa Pine lining our way.

After breakfast at a little spot in Sisters we walked around town for a bit before heading to Redmond (OR) and to Tim and Rene's house.
