A full week of Hope!!!! Yippee!! We couldn't wait to get back to Hope to spend more time exploring. Spending this last week there left us feeling more satisfied, and very happy that we made the decision to go back.

They are very well known for their HUGE cinnamon buns (see pictures) and we planned on enjoying them. SteveB decided a cinnamon bun was all he needed for breakfast, so he ordered that and a cup of coffee. Sue, Patty, and SteveC all had oatmeal and decided to split ...
