Thats a good looking crew right there.  Men, women, children, dogs, beanies, some shoes and no plaid some how.  This was the crew we celebrated Colleens birthday with, at her 4th, 29th birthday.  Minus Maggie and Sade.

Great looking guy.

And maggie of course.

We were lucky enough to be blessed with rainbows, double rainbows actually.

img_6557 There was waves.  Great looking waves, but despite it looking epic, it was a mess to get too.  Besides there was a lot of marine life knocking about on the weekend.  In the water, on the beach, everywhere…

img_6425

There was a lot of good hanging out done.   Coffee being drunk, weather being checked.

Beach walks…

Beach Mustaches

We went up the top of the hill, for some reason we’ve never been before, but its like a scene from return of the jedi..

img_6565

Over the back, more good looking waves,

img_6584

but it was kind of chaos,

img_6538

so we ended up at the house, hanging out

One of the best things with our new spot is the view from the front door…

Portland in fall is one of the nicest places ever.  Beautiful light, great looking city.

Bridge City!

Living here in the Pacfic North West, I’m definitely at home here in Portland, and a signed up member of all things Portland Sports wise.  That said, Seattle being close has been long due a visit, so thankfully last week with some good weather we made a go of it.  From up top the view is pretty epic.

img_5859

Yep we were up there.  Top of the Space Needle.  Built in 1962 and 600 foot tall.

img_5831

We tackled Seattle with the whole crew including Oma and Opa, Mareike and of course Lenny was looking stylish as ever.

img_5881

Lenny and his running around now means thats he’s ready to go anywhere anytime.

Lennys Opa, manning the stroller.

Whilst up by the space needle, we also checked out the banana tree, definitely Lennys happy place.

img_5856

The hills are alive!img_5898

Their own version of the London Eyeimg_5896

and of course the Seattle Public Market/Fish Market.  Such an amazing place!
img_5848

There was an amazing pasta/oil store with fresh pasta ready to try, which was so nice.img_5843

Such a great place, with all kinds of fresh produce, including this fish market.img_5842

Music, food, drink, clothes, all kinds of stuff.img_5839

and of course, the little king…img_5836

Sou’wester RV Park

Last week we went up to Washington, to a zone I’ve not been before to Long Beach 30 mins north of Astoria.

img_5336

Filled with classic RV’s including the Potato Bug, its a pretty amazing spot, very unique and very much a must visit spot.

img_5329

We were posted up in the Silver Streak with a now standing up Lenny.
img_5312

Inside we had two beds with 3 people after Lenny decided he didnt fit in his pack and play anymore.
img_5335 Oustide of the park, we weren’t far from the mouth of the Columbia, and of course…,Cape Disappointment.
img_5341

Its called that because when they first tried discovering this part of the world, they couldn’t actually find it, hence the name.
img_5344

Its quite apt when it rains for 48 hours straight.img_5356

There was so many kids, so much rain and quite a few beers for the parents.  Quite the mix.

The lodge..

Meanwhile between Oregon and Washington, take a look at the bridge… its HUGE.img_5399

On the way home, we went to surf at seaside, which was actually really fun.  I need to bring a bigger board though…img_5403

Bye you guys!
