Meditate

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon, last year. I imagine many people are meditating and consoling themselves this morning on whatever money they spent while hoping to win the $1,600,000,000 Powerball prize drawing last night. As for myself, I’ll pay Kat the $2 for the single ticket she bought on my […]

Parasailing Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge

While in Portland last month, I was lucky to connect with an old friend from my Irish Dancing dressmaking days. She picked me up from my hotel, and took me on the most fabulous drive up the Columbia River Gorge. The weather was clear and sunny, just perfect for touring. Spectacular scenery was on every […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

This week’s Photo Challenge, Boundaries, states “Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects”. I chose this photo, taken at Portland Oregon’s Japanese Garden, as an example of countless boundaries faced by those wheelchair-bound individuals or others with physical disabilities. For additional examples of Boundaries, please click here. ~SueBee

Portland’s Japanese Garden, part 1

While in Portland, Oregon, earlier this month, I visited the serene and beautiful Japanese Garden. The day was overcast and drizzly, perfect coming from a parched, over-baked Southern California.  Per their website: “There is meaning in every stone, reason in every plant and tree, and in every shadow a story.” Please enjoy the lush green gardens […]

Building in the Sky

This photo, taken with my iPhone 6 during my recent visit to Portland, Oregon, was one of those lucky shots. A group of us were walking to dinner, I glanced up (naturally, always on the lookout), stopped walking, took a few shots, ran to catch up with the others. The reflection on the glass facade, along […]

(14 photos in gallery) Please join me as I continue my walking tour of the beautiful Portland (Oregon) International Test Rose Garden. We had a downpour of rain in Southern California last night, and I’m hoping if it continues, we might start to see some green here again, like in Portland!~SueBee

Rose Garden Carpet

Today’s Foto Fix features a rather unique scene I came across in the Portland (Oregon) Rose Garden last weekend. It was an overcast, drizzly day (wonderfully refreshing for someone coming out of a drought stricken area). People were wandering the muddy paths with umbrellas overhead. I haven’t thought to bring one, and wouldn’t know where […]

Portland Words and Signs

(29 photos in gallery) I was fortunate this past weekend to join in the wedding celebration of very dear friends, in Portland, Oregon. I’d booked my flight months ago, prior to my health issues, and worried I’d not be able to attend. But, luckily, I made the trip. Not only were all of the wedding […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
