On Friday morning we drove across the Astoria Bridge, turned east and headed onto Portland (Gresham) along Oregon Highway 30. This route took us along the Columbia River to Portland. Once there we followed our GPS system to the doorsteps of Suzie and Ricardo (Dick) Schacht. We met Ricardo and Suzie about 5 years ago while we were in Cabo San Lucas. Then this last December as Louise and I were walking through the RV Park in Cabo, we came across this couple that was just arriving. We stopped to talk with them for a minute and in that period of time we all knew that we had met somewhere before but couldn’t figure out where or when. The next day we all found out at different times and places were we had met and the friendship has grown since. Anyway, as we were leaving the Baja, they asked us to their home in Gresham (Suburb of Portland) if we were to get anywhere close by. Well today we did. They live and work out of this most beautiful turn of the century home. You know, the two story home, wrap-around front porch, acreage, a beautiful stream running through the treed side yard, and all the “photo sets” that any studio photographer would die for. This place is beautiful !!!
