roap trip picture board!

I had such a lovely visit home! It's always so rejuvenating to relax and spend time with family and friends...this visit was a little sorter than usual but just as lovely. Besides being home visiting friends and what not, my family took an awesome road trip all the way to Vancouver, Cananda to visit our extended family there. It was a great trip with lots of beautiful scenery and tons eating....

top corner picture at the SF Alemany Flea Market possibly the best market I've been too. No junk just tons of neat old antiques and funky extras. Beautiful scenery of Mount Shasta, Oregon's lush forests, purple and yellow cauliflower at the Salem Wednesday Farmers Market, downtown Portland (sneak picture of Anthropologie!), Mount Rainer, Bonnaville Dam.....

Arrival in Vancouver, Canada was long awaited! First stop was the Richmond Night Market (lots of good eats), and next day visit to Fort Langley for browsing of cute shops! I especially fell in love with this adorable store/tea house set in an old house called the Little White House. Everything about it was drool worthy. Then day visit to Capilano Park, crossing the suspension
bridge, and visit to Gastown (awesome boutique, Lynn Steven, with a paper back romance novel dressing room!)

Visited major Seattle landmarks. I thought the Pikes Place Market and the Fremont Troll were pretty darn awesome! On the way home down south we stopped in Olimpia to see the beautiful capital building (inside were all Tiffany Co. Lamps!), accidently coming across the high school where they filmed Twilight in Kalama, WA, visited a Fort, and finally back in California with a stop in Winters for dinner at the Putah Creek Cafe for blissful wood burning oven pizza, sangria and pie....mmmmmm

Hi. You don't know me but I've been subscribed to your blog feed for a short while now. I am wonderingsomething about your picture board post. Do you do that by taking your pictures into an editor and adding them here and there and then some tape brushes? Or is there something out there where you just say "here's my pics, make me something nice and cool" lol.
I think your pictures done together that way are so cool and would make (are) a great scrapbook page and makes me wish I was able to take lots of pictures like that.
