Little Bear's Adventure's
Today I am in Newport, Oregon.
Don and Beth have a funny hotel room, with odd things sitting around.
Sylvia Beach Hotel
The hotel is high on a cliff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Their room is called the Shakespeare Room.
On the little desk, there are books to read.
There is also a quill pen, in case I'm inspired to write a play or poetry.
My mind is blank. All this Shakespeare stuff is a little intimidating.
Next time, I hope they book the Dr. Seuss Room!
Still in Oregon
The weather is so nice, I just want to be out all the time.
Today, I climbed around on some prickly things, like this thistle. But I got poked a lot and I kept falling off.
So we went inside and I climbed around on some inside plants. This was easy and I didn't get any pokey things in my fur!
Last time I was in Oregon, it was cold.
Now it's July and there are blackberries everywhere.
They are growing wild and driving a lot of people crazy.
But they are tasty and some people pick a whole bunch and put them in pies and jams.
Lucky me! All I need is one!
Happy Valley, Oregon
I am happy to be in Happy Valley. It's summer and I like that.
I could sit outside all day long, because it's not hot and it's not cold. It's feels perfect, sitting on the stem of Queen Anne's Lace and watching the world.
I sat and watched until I saw a bug. I'm not fond of bugs and I'm not good at sharing space.
When this bug came, I left.
5 Months Old
I am getting to know Charlie again. I saw her last when she was 13 days old and now she is 5 months!
She didn't notice me at first. I wanted her to see me, because I am her Uncle Little Bear... sort of.
But Charlie is very wise for a 5-month-old. She studied me with her eyes. Then she felt my fur with her fingers and then she looked long and hard... before she tried to taste me. That's when Beth put me away.
I miss Charlie already!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
