Waiting for my drink, I looked out the window.
This reunion was not as well attended as some before. Some family members had other places they needed or wanted to be. We miss those who could not attend. And we were thankful that those near this year’s wildfires were able to join us.
On the final day, my immediate family packed up, took some pictures,4 and left.
We’re already looking forward to our next reunion.
- This year, another generation took over planning the next reunion. I’m looking forward to the changes and returning to some of the things that made prior reunions fun and meaningful. ↩
- Including Pokemon Go! Not only was the wifi much improved, but the Meadow Lodge is a Pokestop. ↩
- I was one for two. I wonder how my two new predictions will fare. ↩
- Of ourselves, and of the new deck. Looking forward to a year where it’s not so wet and we can spend some time outdoors on it. ↩
Yesterday, mid-afternoon, we decided it was a good day for a Cannon Beach visit. Jamison grabbed his drone and camera, and Jamison, Suzi, and I headed for the beach. We stopped by Insomnia and drove nearer to the Rock.
Jamison set up his drone and took off. I held his phone while he took some pictures and video. I hadn’t seen Jamison use his drone before. Too cool!
Not long after we arrived, the sun set and we left.
Every day at the beach is a good day!

Taking Max into Portland, I detrained at Pioneer Square and picked up my morning coffee. Walking to work, I saw another Max coming in the other direction.
Just a few of the shots from this week.
During a team offsite, I glanced out the window.
I stopped at my old photo spot on the drive to the Max station this morning. It’s just a stone’s throw from the Hillsboro Fairgrounds Max station. As I got back in the car, I saw the Eastbound Max pulling away, giving me some time to take some more pictures at the station.
Thanks to the internet, everything's going on my permanent record.

Update. I added the following as a comment, but am pulling it up for those that might not see it otherwise:
Want to freak yourself out? I'm gonna show just how much of your information the likes of Facebook and Google store about you without you even realising it
