Summer Spices

far away beaches and long ago waves













In my experience, this is the very best place I have ever encountered to eat local, wild caught old-fashioned wood smoked salmon.



On my way back from the coast I was able to race a bald eagle while I sat shotgun in my car as we each cruised along a river, parallel to each other, for at least fifteen seconds.  

TRUTH
Sadly I was unable to take a photo of the gigantic bird as his shape darted between the trees of the forest, but here is a photo of the trees.


The wilds of America are vast and beautiful. Respect them, and treasure them. 30 miles down the road from the bald eagle race I encountered a very ugly example of what logging does to our wild forests.  



It was awful.

GET LOST



Powell's Bookstore is endless. It's a wonderful place to get lost. You can disappear into everything.
