and parts for some old campy stuff that was in nice shape and here I
am. Piggy rides again! I never dreamt of this vintage-look beauty and
I feel so stylish riding it. And, the latest addition to this is my
birthday present from Tyler-- that sweet front rack. It has certainly
changed my balance so I am getting used to front weight but boy am I
happy to not carry a bag! Sweaty back be gone with the wind.
And thanks to the lady at the light rail station for snapping this
awesome birthday photo! What a day!
salmon, safron rice with golden raisins, challah, wild greens and wine
made by the bride's dad. Yum!!
evening moonlighting under a red umbrella by our fire struggling to
resist being extinguished by raindrops.
Oh--new stove thanks to the Frerker clan!! We love the Jetboil.
the early morning hike to Bagby Hotsprings any less awesome. The hike
was short and full of amazing views and the dugout log tubs are as
cool as they were in Old Joy.
We arrived in Hood River to much better weather, a talent show at the
Elks Club and a group of lovely gals to share a house with.
I've come down with a cold and both Finn and I had some trouble
sleeping again so we explored safeway and gave now found a coffee shop
Aside from a smattering of sunny hours, this summer is whimpering like an old bus on it's last route. My tomatoes are still green (sigh), my skin is still pale, and I haven't yet cursed the heat (what heat?). Yet, if this photo were the only remnant of the unfinished shift, I would have to deduce that it wasn't half bad. That's Tyler and Colt playing songs by the fire and our garage lit up like a greenhouse. Pretty darn summery-night's dream, if you ask me.
