Couple shaken by scheme in Peru

BAKER CITY — A Baker City couple, who have traveled the world and thought they’d figured out how to keep themselves safe, are still shaken by a scheme they narrowly escaped when they landed at the Lima, Peru, airport in January.

Wayne and Linda Wall had planned a month-long vacation that included visits to Lima, Peru’s capital and largest city, with a population of nearly 10 million people; Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca empire; the Sacred Valley of the Inca; and Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Inca, which was rediscovered in 1911.

Happiest place on earth makes good on promise

The past 10 months have held two milestone celebrations for Dale and me. Our 50th wedding anniversary was spent in Nashville being awestruck by the Opryland Hotel and by the gracious southern hospitality as we ventured farther south into Jack Daniels country.

Last week was another milestone celebration — Dale’s birthday. Where would be the best place for a party?

Now is the time to start thinking about that weekend away to look for signs of spring and a bit of R&R. In about three hours you could be in Boise, Idaho, where the arrival of spring is usually a few weeks ahead of La Grande and where there is a good selection of activities to meet the needs of the whole family. Of course restaurants providing dishes that are new, unusual or just plain delicious are always tempting.
