It's Official. I now have my first and only nephew. Gage is his name and grinning at stuff is his game. These pics are from a few weeks after he was brand spankin' new. He is 2... maybe 3... I dunno, Several months old now and looks only a little like he does in these pictures. Now that you know what he looks like wave if you see him on the street.
I visited the Japanese Garden in Portland a mere three months ago. It is an amazing few acres of classic Japanese style gardens in the middle of busy Portland. A beautiful place to wander, even in the rain like I did. I fear I didn't do it justice.
That's right I said THE Bartons. Last August (yep I'm five months behind on posts...) the Barton Fam invited me to their cool cabin in the woods to take some family photos. They are an awesome family who fed me some awesome food.
Now boys and girls it is time for artsy, photographer like pictures
from my road trip with my aunt and uncle. You will at no point in this
post be forced to look at any pictures of any of my motorcycles. So fear
not you can enjoy in peace.
First stop is lovely, flat Pendleton, OR.
Then just north of the Gorge in Washington we ran into a woman on a golf cart.
Not that odd. Until you see her passengers.
My uncle getting too close to the seals in Astoria, OR.
Pacific City, OR.
I love beaches. I love giant rocks.
would back their trailered boats as fast as they could into the surf.
Then slam on the breaks flinging the boats into the sea. Then they gas
it back up the beach to park their trucks and sprint back to the boat
before it washes out to sea. I was LOLing during this entire process.
Beautiful orange sand stone cliffs also at Pacific City.
Cool little mushrooms on the trail to Munson Falls.
Taking off from PDX on a clear day and you can see some cool peaks.
Pacific City Panorama.
Pendleton, OR. It really is that flat. Kansas like.
