Road Trip

I've written a few of you with news of my road trip. This travel plan came about after telling a few more of you that I had no summer plans; none whatsoever save for reading a few books. After talking to my aunt a couple weeks ago I made plans for a long overdue trip to to see her. Then last Tuesday I got in the car and headed north. I don't know why I don't get up there more often. It's a ten hour drive and much of it is scenic. (Maybe the 10 hour part has something to do with that.)

The trip was smooth sailing until I crossed the Oregon border. Shortly thereafter I met with a sort of traffic jam.

They were side by side at forty miles per hour for some minutes (I'm sure it wasn't as long as it felt) before the truck on the left finally got around to passing. Really, why do they do these things?

On my last day we had lunch in a little town called Gold Hill at a place called "The Teapot on Wheels." This place is adorable and I have to visit it again. They have a special high tea room where ladies can borrow hats if they did not bring one. 

We decided that on my next visit we would have high tea.

Even the signs are cute.

This is our view from the window. They have events in their back yard. You can see the Rogue River running past.

If you plan on being in Southern Oregon or will even be just passing through, The Teapot on Wheels is just off Interstate 5. You can check out their menu here.

Now to get back to those summer books I had planned!
