Day at Hood River Oregon

Yesterday we went on a beautiful road trip. We meant to go to the volcano Mt. St. Helen's which blew up in the 1980s but the GPS led us 2 hours astray to a town called Hood River in Oregon. It is a warm little town known for Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, and it's cool little hipster town with microbrew beers (we love our beers in Oregon). That is Mt. Hood (another volcano) in the background.

A Summer Evening in Portland

I invited a nice couple we know over to my place- which I have never done! We made dinner (well he made dinner) and I made dessert of shortcake, whip cream, with fresh raspberries and blueberries picked at Sauvie Island. There was lots of talking and wine and and a walk down Hawthorne to the Bagdad for a Greyhound drink which has fresh grapefruit juice and vodka.

Then down to Belmont for wine and appetizers at Circa 33

Which led to me dancing in the street at the end of the night walking home.
