We spent our fifth day of Becca’s visit back in Eugene (knowing that everything would be lame in comparison to our Hood River adventure the day before).
We had breakfast at Humble Bagel for the second time (clearly, the marionberry cream cheese was a huge hit) before Becca and I headed to Mount Pisgah for a little hike.
It’s only a 2-mile hike to the summit, but it’s a pretty steep 2 miles. Nothing makes me feel out of shape like hiking uphill. Or running uphill. Or walking slowly uphill. Or staring uphill.
But we pressed on and were rewarded with spectacular views at the top. And in my attempt to appear like we have actually lived here for almost a year, I tried pointing out various mountain peaks, but I’m pretty sure everything I told you was wrong, Becca. Someday I’ll learn.
After the hike, we headed over to Sweet Cheeks Winery for a picnic on the patio with some wine.
We may or may not have spent the rest of the afternoon at Target, where I shopped with someone other than Eric for the first time in months. It was marvelous.
And, of course, this was the day of Prince George Alexander Louis’ birth, so we had to make a cake to celebrate.
