Day trip to Sisters, Oregon

It was a gorgeous sunny day today in Central Oregon!  I opened up the doors for fresh air and almost uttered the words, "it's hot."

Almost short sleeve weather...

We headed to Sisters, Oregon about 20 miles from our house.
Population of Sisters is 1,706, and it's a very cute town.  Had lunch at Bronco Billy's Saloon.

Prime rib sandwich with sauteed onions, creamy garlic sauce and melted cheese

Then, we walked around town for the rest of the afternoon.  Stopped in the most amazing antique shop.  Wish Dad and Uncle Ron could've been there to see some of the tools, marbles, and plumb bobs!

Clay marbles

Antique plugs

Emil and a Stanley #8 Plane

Assorted old tools

I LOVE these chickens!

Plumb bob from the 1800's

My favorite picture is the birdhouse made from a cowboy boot.  Just plain awesome.

We also stopped by The Fly Fishers Place, and Emil has a casting lesson with them on Monday.  The guide is super nice and friendly.  And as another Alaska connection, he was a guide in Bristol Bay for five years.

Enjoy the weekend!
