Jim wants to get kayaks before we make another trip to the Pacific Northwest, so we stopped at a kayak shop. We also walked at Riverbend City Park on the Deschutes that is Bend’s version of the beach --it's very busy because it's very nice.

Bend, Oregon and back at the LaPine State Park
We did errands in Bend, OR, and found out that somewhere in Portland or Newport, our rear driver’s side tire on our tow car picked up a 1 1/2 inch screw which caused a slow leak. So we went to Les Schwab and in about 45 minutes and just over $12 were on our way to lunch at Bend's 10 Barrel Brewery (Jim texted SLC friend John for recommendations -- thanks John, it was good). Then we drove around Bend (It reminds me of a bigger Park City without close by mountains), went to the grocery store, and looked for an air compressor so we can fill our tires at our leisure instead of at a gas station (the salesman at Home Depot told us about a Ryobi compressor where we get a weed whacker with the battery, but we just don't have the room nor the need for a weed whacker at the moment.)
