Weekend Travels...

Sometimes, for days on end, I have a real aversion to descending the basement steps and sitting my behind at this computer. I can't bring myself to sit down here in the dark dungeon when all around the birds are chirping and the trees are bursting into bloom. Who can blame me? Surely not you! So here you have it, a day late but brought to you with just as much delight. Follow me on our weekend travels...



We started the weekend off right at 5:01 friday evening with a stroll along the riverfront. Can you smell the salt air and feel the breeze in your hair? Stop and wave, that's the lovely state of Washington you can see on the far-distant shore.
We were turned around and headed back downtown to a dinner of burritos and margarita's when this big cargo ship sailed into view. She was haulin' for home and had overtaken us in nothing flat, blowin' her horn for all to hear. I think she was telling the pilot boat to "be ready! I'm not waiting..."


Up saturday morning and off to Portland for the fun and excitement of the Saturday Market. What a wonderful way to spend a saturday afternoon. Stepping off of the MAX at the Burnside Bridge market, the smell of cotton candy and sausages ravages your nose. MMM... what delights await.....


Which way do I go? What should I look at first? Where's the fresh-squeezed lemonade?


AH!! May you all be blessed with beer and brats.....

OOh... looks like fun. I'm with you, I'd hate to sit a computer if it was down in the basement. You need a laptop so you can blog outside

Your descriptions made me feel like I was right there, with you, and let me tell you, the photo of the "brats and beer" really set my mouth to watering too! Great post and photos.

Oh, I want to go to the Saturday Market! I can just imagine allthe great finds!
I was just in Dr. Bluers today & saw Jeannie. She said to tell you hi & that Doc is coming to Oregon the first week of May.
It was realy nice here today, but now the wind is starting up & it's getting cooler.
I better go for a walk before it gets worse.
