Smile for Barney! Lots of nice areas around " The U by the Slough"
Janzen Beach on the water, great spot to live. Commute to Newberg, not so good! (I-5 traffic sucks)
You drove close to my old home when you drove to/from work in the Terwilliger Curves.
I had several buds live in that area over the years, always fun to visit on the 4th of July.
Sorry you don't get to see your mother earlier, but I sure understand the caution nowadays.
Better safe than sorry!
