Cascadia State Park, Oregon


It rains a lot in Oregon. A lot. At the beginning of summer you’ll see lots of bright white people walking around outside. (It’s an almost blinding effect.) There is an eagerness in the air to spend the entirety of summer (if at all possible) out-of-doors, trying to get some of our color back. We have […]

G Mart, Asian Grocery Store, Beaverton, Oregon


A month or so back we had a chance to make it up to the Beaverton area. Whenever we are in a new and/or big city, we always search out a Korean restaurant and try to arrive as hungry as possible. On this occasion we checked out G Mart, which is reported to be the best […]

Exploring & Photographing Prince Edward Island


I’m not going to lie. My chief interest in Prince Edward Island has always been Lucy Maud Montgomery. She painted pictures in my imaginations from a very early age of what this Island looked and felt like. My interest in the place as grown as I’ve aged. Over 15 years ago I was able to visit […]

Orwell Corner Historical Village, Prince Edward Island


Are you visiting Prince Edward Island? Put this place on your list, if you haven’t done so already. Orwell Corner Historical Village was admittedly a last minute choice for us on our recent visit to the Island. We had an unplanned day and wanted to explore the Eastern side of the Island. A quick internet search […]

Exploring Charlottetown, PEI


One of our days on Prince Edward Island was spent exploring Charlottetown. This was the only day of our visit that the weather was kinda iffy. There was a light drizzle for a bit in the afternoon but the rest of the day remained clear and we enjoyed our time there. When we are exploring […]

The Portland Farmers Market, Portland, Oregon


A few weeks back we were in Portland, Oregon on a Saturday morning. We decided to check out their famed Farmers Market (which everyone in the state references as being absolutely fantastic). There are many Farmers Markets which take place around the city; we visited the one held on the campus of Portland State University. […]

Briarcliffe Inn, Prince Edward Island


Briarcliffe Inn was one of the most delightful and pleasant surprises on our stay at Prince Edward Island. Although really, it shouldn’t have been that surprising. It’s just that we didn’t really pay a lot of attention to what type of place we were going to stay at during the second half of our stay […]

The Harbour Hippo in Charlottetown, PEI

Harbour Hippo

If you spend much time in Charlottetown, you will doubtless be familiar with this unmistakeable vehicle on the streets and plowing the waters near the Charlottetown Harbor! We decided on join the Harbour Hippo on a mid-day excursion when it looked like rain might be on the way, and wanted to see the local sights […]
