Today is our first day on the farm. We arrived last night around 7 p.m. and unpacked just the basics and checked out the new digs. The homeowners' children warmly greeted us and showed us our bedroom. The bed was covered with a beautiful burgundy and gold comforter with several matching throw pillows. Ample drawers and closets rounded out the room and a large window on the west side of the room showcases the mountain range.
We woke up early this morning and headed out to the chicken coop. One light brown egg was waiting in the nest of straw.
After having breakfast, we unloaded the rest of the van. Took 20 minutes. Sigh. I should have brought more stuff!
We headed into town for lunch and a visit at The Patient Angler, a very cool little fishing store in Bend. Bought some steelhead flies (intruder pattern), a box of James Prosek notecards and a guide to fishing Central Oregon. We are ready to fish.
Stocked up on groceries at Costco. Bananas are $1.32 here! WOW! Also noted the Costco Cafe sells Carne Asada Bakes. Will come back for lunch in the future to try it.
Now, I sit on the back porch, watching the chickens flitter by and our laundry hanging on the line to dry. A great first day on the farm.
