Our House, in the Middle of our Street, PC 2016 edition

in America


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…


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


Beach walks…


Beach carries


Beach Mustaches


and tired little guys from the sea air.


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..


Over the back, more good looking waves,


but it was kind of chaos,


so we ended up at the house, hanging out


comparing mustaches
walking some more

waiting for Tacos,

img_6597drinking cider, wine, whilst Lenny takes a hammer to Hannahs beer

and more dogs, and maybe a cheeky glass of wine, which may or may not have been in used in the finger drinking game.

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


We also got some rainbows into the house.


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


Bridge City!


We’ve also got the changing of the trees right now too, pretty epic.img_5565

We’ve also been doing some artwork in the front.

Lenny is hyped of course…img_5973

And wants to get into some yard work.

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.


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


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


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.


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!

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.


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


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

Inside we had two beds with 3 people after Lenny decided he didnt fit in his pack and play anymore.

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

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!
