Another beautiful day in Bend; we drove to town and parked about 1/2 mile away in a lovely park:

Walking along the river we found another dam; at one time this dam had a powerhouse or mill:

We returned to the Villa at about 3:30; we discovered we had new Airstream neighbors; they have quit their jobs, sold their house, and are moving here.  They will be spending the winter here in Bend in their Airstream while they look for work and look to buy or build a house…

Happy Hours ensued; an an enjoyable time was had by all…
