Blackberry Farm, last day

We got up the last day and prepared to leave.  Just a few things we had to do before we left.  On the top of the list was a visit to the dogs. 

Jim Sanford is the dog trainer.  He spent 20 years training elephants and now trains dogs at Blackberry Farm.  He works with Lagotto Romagnolo Italian truffle dogs.  They can find truffles which they are now growing on the farm.  One of them found a 200 lb truffle at the Oregon Truffle festival.  Seriously nice man.  They sell the puppies to patrons of the resort.  

Emily got on the swing before we left.  The swing, the views, the whole picture defines the place.  We had an amazing time.  So glad we went.  A journey worth taking. 

BTW, they gave us each a gourmet box lunch to take on the plane…just in case we had to have one more bite.
