Had a few moments to appreciate a waterfall in the middle of Bend Oregon today along the Deschuttes River. It was in the last moments of dusk, as a bright moon hung over the falls in the middle of downtown Bend, which in so many ways is more like a village than a city. It was peaceful, but it really made me think back on — and appreciate — the waterfalls and waterwheel along the Aure River in France where it disects Bayeaux, in the shadow of the Bayeaux Cathedral. Wonderful place and a beautiful village. I thoroughly enjoyed the three days we stayed in Bayeaux in 2013.
