New Year's Day Walk

We decided to start the 2022 year off right with a brisk walk around Salem's Waterfront Park. There were a lot of other people that had the same idea and with the sun out, it was a great day, and a great way to bring in the New Year with a fresh start. It's such a wonderful thing to know that, even on your hardest days you're here, already. It's a new year and you did it, you made it through. Even the hardest days that you, well we, had in 2021, we made it through. And to me, that's worth every second of happiness on January 1 each year. Happy New Year and here's to another year of making it through the hardest days and celebrating every step of the way~










Night at the Arcade

We took some time away from everything and played at Arcade Fun at the Two Rivers Market Mall in Albany, Oregon. It's been awhile since we've been to an arcade, so it was a lot of fun and kind of nostalgic for me.








 


Autumn Hike at Silver Creek Falls

After watching the Stayton Ghost Tour and Historic Walk yesterday, we decided to take a hike around Silver Creek Falls to finish out the day. The leaves were changing for the season and the smell of autumn was all around us. The falls looks its best this time of year and it's one of my favorite places to hike in Oregon. Of course, with the pandemic there wasn't a lot of people out and about and it made the hiking that much more enjoyable for us. 















Stayton Ghost Tour

This past Saturday, October 16, 2021, we participated in the Fourth Annual Stayton Ghost Tour and Historic Walk through the city at the historic Star Cinema in Stayton, Oregon. This ghost tour helps bring in money to support the Brown House in Stayton and the RDS-Revitalize Downtown Stayton. 


Although, we were expecting a ghostly tour of the city, we got much more than that. The film was presented through the eyes of citizens that would have lived during that time period. Each character was based off an actual person that lived and thrived in the city of Stayton and all of the good, and sometimes the bad they brought to the area. 

It was a great film and I definitely recommend it. This was the Fourth Annual Ghost Tour and Historic Walk, and the the first time we have attended, but we are definitely going to be returning for the next showing.
