A New Life…Corvallis
Some 3,300 miles later, after laying out $300 for gas and $500 for hotels and B&Bs, we arrived in Corvallis.
We are homeowners now:
Highlights in town so far:
-The views from Mary’s Peak
-The mooing cows and manure smells that greet us every morning from the nearby Oregon State University Dairy department.
-The fact that challah bread is a delicacy here. It was our first purchase at the New Morning Bakery downtown. “Ha-la: a Jewish egg bread,” it said on the label. “I don’t know if you’ve ever tasted it, but it’s really good,” the salesgirl said.
