Two days beginning with P

Over the last week we celebrated 2 "P" days :^) on March 14 we celebrated Pi day with some of Chiyoko's home made Cornish Pastys.


Then for St. Patrick's Day she made some Irish Brown Bread, Guinness Stew followed by a Syrup Sponge. I opened the Guinness ;^)...

Fire & Water on Oneonta Creek!

Sunday Chizuru, Kazuko, Chiyoko, Pascal & I headed out for a hike in the rain up a raging Oneonta Creek in the Columbia Gorge. It seemed like a good day to practice our fire making skills :)..

A 4T turned 2T


Last Sunday while some of the ladies were at a baby shower we set off to hike the Portland 4T (Trail, Tram, Trolley & Train). Things didn't go according to plan though as after the first T (the trail hike from the zoo to the OHSU tram) we discovered that the Tram is closed on Sundays! So we had to continue our hike down to the waterfront where we stopped for a restorative pint! After that rather than take the 3rd T (the street trolley) we continued walking along the waterfront to the 4th T (the Max line) which we took back up to the Zoo. A 4T turned 2T!
