From Washington to Oregon in a Day

This morning we left Arlington Washington and drove down to Portland Oregon. We stopped in Olympia, Washington’s capital, and at the Farmer’s Market bought breakfast – great fresh fruit: peaches, apples, plums. We also bought lunch – cucumbers, grape tomatoes and a great loaf of garlic and rosemary French bread. Upon arriving in Portland at … Continue reading »

Today in Arlington Washington

So we finally arrived yesterday evening at Brad and Kristy’s house. We had great salmon for dinner and our friend ¬†from Triiibes Rex came over from Everett to visit. Joel played a little music and then we got a great night’s sleep. By the way, the rest stops in Washington are great! You can get … Continue reading »

Finding Our Way

We’re really enjoying ourselves and finding our way from town to town is going just fine. Finding our way in how we manage things is a learning process. We’ve discovered that it’s not always convenient to find internet access when we want and that Joel’s laptop batteries aren’t worth much. So we’ll have to find … Continue reading »

The Long Haul

We actually drove away from the house at 10:41 pm. Our first stop was to the local store to pick up something to drink for Fiona and Frappuccino’s for Joel to help him stay awake for the all night drive. It’s amazing that we fit so much stuff in the van and nearly every piece … Continue reading »

House Concerts Along the Way

Could I possibly end up performing in St. Helens, Oregon, Everett, Washington, and Vancouver? (Edit: St. Helens is out, this trip.) House concerts beat coffee shops hands down. Coffee shops are really a place to go practice, knowing that absolutely no one is listening. But show up to someone’s living room, where they’ve invited all … Continue reading »
