Fall In A Southern Oregon Town
Before Fall turns to Winter and the Christmas holiday season begins, I want to share a bit of Fall with you again. I’m taking you to the southern part of Oregon – to the sweet, little town of Jacksonville where I spent a few days with my dear friend, Jane, from Tickleberry Farm. I told you about my trip here – but I never got back to share more with you. We met and stayed at a sweet, little cottage right in the heart of town. We felt right at home there.
Jacksonville is a historic, little town that is filled with antique and specialty shops and eating establishments with incredible eats of all kinds. The town was ‘ablaze’ with color. We definitely chose the right time of year to spend time there. All the lampposts around town were decorated. Each one was slightly different than the others. We enjoyed a walk around town together. Leaves crunched under our feet and we loved spending time together in this beautiful place.
‘Jane’ and I took a break and stopped by Magnolia Inn. She and her hubby had stayed here a few months earlier. The proprietor was in. He welcomed us and invited us to sit and visit with him in the parlor.As we walked along the sidewalk on the corner by the inn we had seen this sweet, vintage trailer parked in the back driveway. We learned that it was an anniversary gift from the proprietor to his wife. We asked if we could have a tour. He was happy to tell us all about it and let us go inside. Soon I’ll show you a few more sights from Jacksonville. And I have a special announcement to share early next week. Until then, the colors and sights and sounds of Fall may fade but its beauty will be a sweet memory through many long, winter days.
