Today we started out getting coffee from Crossroads Cafe in Gladstone. This is Rob’s favorite place for coffee. Friendly owner and workers who understand how he likes his coffee. Heading down Highway 213 through Oregon City and into Mulino, we stopped at Tammy D’s Cafe for a delicious breakfast. Tammy herself bakes all the breads along with treats of cinnamon rolls, cookies, pumpkin rolls, and more. This place comes highly recommended. After breakfast we headed south to Silverton and the Oregon Gardens. Oh, and did I mention how gorgeous the weather was today?!? It was not quite 40 degrees out but the was shining and no clouds were in the sky. Perfect Fall day for taking photos. At the Oregon Gardens we saw many beautiful plants, trees, leaves turning color, and some flowers (yes, roses) doing their best to hang on in this colder weather. Video of this trip coming soon so check back often for updates.
