Grandparent Migration

I published this post without a photo. Sorry for the duplicate.

My husband and I joined the fully vaccinated grandparent migration last weekend. One of my fully vaccinated chums is also visiting her grandkids. Over 40% of people over 65 have been vaccinated against COVID 19, so I know there are lots of us in migration mode.

After a year, we were finally able to hug one of our daughters and three of our grandkids. We have seen them a couple of times during the pandemic, but hugging had been out of the question until now.

They live in a small town in Oregon.

We met them for lunch and then took the Wahkiakum County Ferry with them, the Oscar B, across the Columbia River. It is the last ferry on the Lower Columbia. It was a chilly ride, but really fun. Check out my photos on Instagram @travelswithallene. We capped off our day with them at the local pizza place.
Our grandkids are now teenagers. My husband and I are both grateful that spending time with us is something that they still seem to enjoy doing.
We know that spending time with them…..and giving them a hug, pretty much tops our list! I’m so relieved that we have all made it through the year! It hasn’t been easy.
I will be back on Wednesday with more Oregon adventures.
