Friends, the nights and mornings are getting chillier here in central Oregon. We love it, and we know that we’ll be in for a big surprise with how cold it gets in the winter. But first, let’s talk fall. Because summer has ended, and we wanted to take advantage of the last warm weekend, we savored a tiny bit more of the warm days, and experienced a late-afternoon float.

Our first almost-evening float. We got off the water at dusk.

It was our first float, ever, with our dog, Haggis. Who, by the way, loved it. We didn’t know how he’d do, but he did just fine.

It’s hard to say goodbye to fall.

A snack that we took with us to munch on was Abby’s Grain Free Granola!

Before Abby left for college, she made sure that we were stocked up on this yummy recipe.

She made a double batch, making sure we were well taken care of.

We love a bowl with almond milk.

Or just by itself.

This is a popular recipe for those on a grain-free diet.

  1. Looks fun what is your son using on the water?? recipe looks yummy never thought of making grain free granola. We just had to put away our water craft as well very sad like you we just got some gear this summer and had a blast on it. 
    Happy fall!!! 

  2. Love this idea of leaving out the oats. I’ve been buying Bobs Red Mill GF Oats when I make mine. I’ll have to try this version.

    We were in SR one December for a 2 week vacation and it snowed the entire time we were there and there was already about 2′ of snow when we arrived. We LOVED it! Went into Bend for their CHristmas parade which was a pretty fun experience too. Have a fun winter!!

  3. I love your blue and white bowls. Do you know who they are made by?
