They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That’s good. Because I don’t have a thousand words. I have a ton of pictures. And zero words. Well, some words.
Things have been happening here after moving to the Pacific Northwest. We’ve been…
running around the beaches in Florence,
biking all over Eugene,
hiking all over Eugene,
and eating, always eating the good vegan foods.
Vegan Chinese from Lotus Garden: Battered veggie beef deep-fried, broccoli, carrot in sweet & spicy sauce,
and veggie pot stickers.
Neal’s specialty: homemade BBQ tofu with a side of broccoli and curly fries.
Asparagus bowl with creamy avocado dressing, olive tapenade and a jungle juice (I think) from Laughing Planet.
And food from one of my favorite places in Eugene, Cornbread Cafe. A vegan omelette with sausage, biscuits and home fries.
Strawberry crepes with tempeh bacon and home fries.
For the next post, there will be words. At least more words. Probably the same amount of pictures give or take. Sound good?
This weekend we went on a short hike in Arabia Mountain. We walked along two trails. The first was “Forest Hill” and it was, well, forest-y.
We went past Arabia Lake. Nikko (our girl pup) was feeling adventurous and ended up falling in the lake. Poor girl. She was ok. I didn’t get a picture of her falling in…what kind of mother do you think I am??
After we passed the lake, we took “Mile Rock” trail back to the nature center. This part of the trail is all rock. Although Arabia Mountain is called a mountain, it’s actually a granite monadnock. This just means it’s an isolated and exposed rock hill.
Granite used to be quarried here so there are still big chunks lying about.
The entire time it threatened to rain on us.
But we made it back to the car dry.
When we got home, I made us a couple of smoothies with mango, peaches, tangerines, strawberries and pineapples.
And the dogs, who are city dogs through and through, recouped from being out in nature.
