Our Europe trip kicked off in Paris. We actually hadn’t planned on trying to see…
Since we just got back from a whirlwind trip around Europe and then made the drive from Canada to Portland with the dogs, we thought it might be a good idea to have a lazy weekend. Of course, by the time the weekend arrived, we were fiending for an adventure.
Gabbar got skunked and only one thing helped get the smell out: a mixture of 1-quart hydrogen peroxide, ¼ cup baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of dish-washing liquid.
Gabbar just turned 10! I have no idea where the last 10 years with him have gone and I’d be lying if I said his birthdays weren’t becoming a bit bittersweet.
It was barely Monday before we were already thinking about adventures for the upcoming weekend. We checked the weather forecast for our usual haunts (Portland, the coast, Hood River) but couldn’t find any ideal weather. We decided to look in another direction and ended up deciding that we would spend the weekend in Bend.
As usual, Zeke woke us up nice and early on Saturday morning. The weather forecast was predicting rain, but it hadn’t started yet and since we were up anyway, I suggested we head down to the waterfront for a walk. We’ve never been down there so early and it was nice because it wasn’t as busy as usual.
I finally went to Cannon Beach! I’ve been wanting to go for years and Gagan and I even made a trip up along the coast last summer, but unfortunately we didn’t hit Cannon Beach. Last week, I just randomly decided to look up what the weather would be at the beach. Yes, I know it’s mid-January, but I have a need to be outside regardless of the weather. Surprisingly, it was actually going to be warm so I pitched the idea to Gagan. Turns out Cannon beach is only an hour and a half away from us so we decided to go for it. And oh man, am I ever glad we did. It was a glorious day!
