Went to eastern Oregon to see the John Day fossil beds, which I had been to before but not for several years. Stayed at the larger cottage with friends. It was so delightful. The cottage has such a comfortable feel. Full kitchen was nice -- complete with spices and olive oil -- but the garden was the best part. Places to sit and read or ponder the meaning of the universe. Beds were comfortable, and the shower was large.
Great flowers -- poppies, columbine, and peonies were in bloom when we visited. Our host was available but never intrusive, and takes great pride in the cottage and the garden. I had no telephone service AT&T and the wireless in the cottage kind of came and went. However, for me, those were advantages not disadvantages. Great place.
