It's astonishing to me how quickly we are able to fall into habits and routine. By my third morning in Port Townsend I woke up fully expecting and ready to go crabbing. I'm pretty sure I would have been a little thrown off my game if we hadn't. Heading out onto the water in a … Continue reading Sasquatch, Fish and Flowers in Seattle
My very first day in Port Townsend I went crabbing and hiking which would be a pretty tough day to beat for anyone except the exceptional Dick and Diana.

She's had a rough go of it lately. She was strapped into … Continue reading Portland: Maria, Food, and Friends
...for about two and a half minutes on Monday, anyway. After putting my new vehicle (Name TBD) to the test through Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon, I made it Portland! I am lucky enough to be friends with Tom (henceforth known as the Eclipse Maestro) who scoped out a spot to watch the eclipse and … Continue reading Ain’t No Sunshine
