It’s really been awhile since we’ve posted anything, and it’s not because we haven’t been up to anything, either. No excuse, really, other than life rolling by, without even pulling the pictures from the cameras. Well, D. finally got around to going through all 1,200+ photos he’d been dragging his feet on working through, and we can finally tell you a bit about the past few weeks (with pictures).
Two weeks ago, on the way home from church, we happened to see a bunch of sailboats coming up the bay. So of course we had to go grab the big camera & hope to catch them before they were out of sight. We present to you: sailboats with oil tanks. Thank you.
Last weekend we were in Portland, visiting our friends N&K (who came to visit with us in Scotland, and whom we visited when they lived in Holland). All of you other friends: this is a hint to travel to interesting places. Like, for example, places with pretty volcanoes in the distance.
Of course, Portland is very proud of being weird. Hence this guy, geared up for the naked bike ride (we don’t know why he’s clothed, no – but we’re kind of glad he didn’t embrace the “naked” in the “naked bike ride”).
Portland has lots of interesting architecture, strange but nice people, and is difficult to negotiate with a car. Apparently their public transit is quite good, though. It was Fleet Week, so there were sailors; there was a rose parade; we saw waterfalls. It was a very busy weekend!
Also: there were lamprey.
