My Raised Garden

Spent 4.5 hours preparing and planting seeds in our raised bed garden. A baby Aspen started growing in there and decided to keep it. I then rewarded myself with a DQ ice cream cone, dipped in cherry, of course.

PDX: The Land Of…

Ralph has a work conference so we are in the land of:
Hipsters
Smokers
Street people
Aromatic flowers/vegetation
Lots of cyclists (no matter your shape)

Had Thai for dinner, then went on a long walk ending up at Powell’s Books and dropped in on an excellent author talk by Beth Shapiro on cloning Mammoths.

Oregon Coast – Gold Beach

First day out walking on the beach in the rain. Even though I watched Ralph get ready, I didn’t realize until this photo that he didn’t wear the more attractive, navy rainsuit.
