Pacific Ocean at Depot Bay, Oregon
Canby, Oregon (where my aunt lives) is the dahlia capital of the world. Their annual dahlia festival was in progress while we were there, and I got to go to see it twice! They have acres and acres of dahlia fields, two large rooms of dahlia arrangements, and it is a BEAUTIFUL site!

Some of the wonderful desserts that we had at our family gathering. The pear tart (center pie with lattice top) was excellent--made by cousin Loretta!
