A highlight of our stay in Boring was a tour of the nearby Guide Dogs for the Blind facility. What a wonderful charity, with all expenses paid for the recipients of the trained guide dog.
A few days later, I went back for a graduation ceremony for the students and their new guide dogs. There were 5 graduate pairs, and they were all tear jerkers. If you ever go to one of these, bring plenty of tissues...
All of the dogs at this graduation were Black Labs and Yellow Labs, but they sometimes also have Golden Retrievers.
We visited a couple of the McMenamins while in the area. McMenamins is a chain of repurposed buildings made into restaurants, breweries, etc.
They had a garden with some of the largest flowers I have ever seen!
WOW! This one is gigantic!
This McMenamins even had a spa!
This has been such a great stop, I hate to leave, but on to Astoria and the end of the Lewis and Clark circuit.
