Logan Family Reunion, 2018

Another couple of years, another Logan family reunion. Our reunion has changed over the years as one generation takes the place of the prior one and the age distribution changes.1

This reunion was not as well attended as some before. Some family members had other places they needed or wanted to be. We miss those who could not attend. And we were thankful that those near this year’s wildfires were able to join us.

Rain kept us indoors and together. Puzzles, games,2 and meals kept us talking. Willy continued his tradition of reviewing the prior reunion’s predictions and collecting new ones.3

On the final day, my immediate family packed up, took some pictures,4 and left.

We’re already looking forward to our next reunion.


  1. This year, another generation took over planning the next reunion. I’m looking forward to the changes and returning to some of the things that made prior reunions fun and meaningful. 
  2. Including Pokemon Go! Not only was the wifi much improved, but the Meadow Lodge is a Pokestop. 
  3. I was one for two. I wonder how my two new predictions will fare. 
  4. Of ourselves, and of the new deck. Looking forward to a year where it’s not so wet and we can spend some time outdoors on it. 

Cannon Beach Sunset

Yesterday, mid-afternoon, we decided it was a good day for a Cannon Beach visit. Jamison grabbed his drone and camera, and Jamison, Suzi, and I headed for the beach. We stopped by Insomnia and drove nearer to the Rock.

Jamison set up his drone and took off. I held his phone while he took some pictures and video. I hadn’t seen Jamison use his drone before. Too cool!

Not long after we arrived, the sun set and we left.

Every day at the beach is a good day!

Update. I added the following as a comment, but am pulling it up for those that might not see it otherwise:
