Our dear friends from Salem, Don and Carolyn, were in town to visit their daughter Holly and family and were staying at Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond. Since we did not go over to Salem this trip, this was our only opportunity for a visit. We were also joined by our good friends Alinda and Ernest from Terrebonne and a friend of Carolyn's from her United Stewardess days, Cathie who is now living in Redmond.

After meeting in Don and Carolyn's room for wine and cheese, we walked over to Neblick's on the Green for dinner and continuing conversation. Carolyn, Cathie and I exchanged remembrances from our stewardess days. Those were they days when passengers were treated with TLC and travelers dressed in their suits and proper attire. Drinks were limited to 2 and were free as was the food.
Trays were hand carried and on the smaller planes, only 1 stewardess. We wore girdles, starched blouses, skirts just below the knees, high heels and hats. What happened?
Alinda and Ernie are RV'ers parttime as were Don and Carolyn before they sold their Beaver Coach. We shared some RV experiences.
Think Don wants another one, but has settled for a Grand Cherokee Diesel Auto instead. He showed us all the bells and whistles and said that on a 24 gallon tank they can get 700 miles. Carolyn hasn't driven it yet. It does everything.
Dinner was delicious and we all got something different from Trout, to Pork to Salads to Shrimp and Scallops. On the walk back to the lodge was disappointed I did not see any deer. Eagle Crest is a very nice resort featuring homes, condos, golf course, stables, conference facilities, restaurants and shops. Very well established. We stayed there several years ago when we had our RCI timeshare.
Hopefully we can all get together again in September when we return.
It was a non stop day for us getting ready to depart tomorrow. Our power shade came in, John washed the iHome,I did laundry, carpooled the grandsons to and from school, made a trip to the storage shed and did a few errands.
One last picture of the piggies.
