    Family Vacation — 2020

    This last week we had our yearly summer family vacation. This entry is as much diary as pictures. Friday After an atypical last workday before vacation day, we packed up and headed off to our family summer vacation. A couple of the kids had left earlier in the day, taking a kayak and a dog.…

    My favorite photos of 2019

    Every year, I post my favorite photos. Some years, I’ve been able to cut it down to my top ten, but not this year. For that matter, I couldn’t limit myself to fewer than eleven photos from Cannon Beach… :-D Many years, I’ve also posted my top nine from Instagram, but again, not this year,…

    Sunriver family vacation — 2019

    Friday Five bikes on the car and we’re ready for fun. We have arrived at Sunriver for our summer family vacation of 2019. Warning: This is a long post with lots of pictures.

    Sunriver Family Vacation — 2018

    I’m posting this more than a year late. Not sure why I didn’t earlier, but I have my theories… Both Kevin and I got sick this vacation, resulting in a fair amount of downtime. It was still relaxing. I just didn’t end up with many pictures. Kevin even missed our kayaking float. :-( And it…

  • Summer Camping Trip

    Summer Camping Trip

    This last weekend, we went camping in central Oregon, a little south of Bend and Sunriver, but close enough to both to visit. Jamison and I took the opportunity to visit The Longboard Store near the Old Mill District in Bend. We also rented bikes and kayaks in Sunriver and a pontoon boat at East…

    Sunriver Family Vacation 2013

    We spent another week-long vacation at Sunriver this summer. While we were there, we enjoyed the 4th Annual Sunriver Art Faire. Some of the artists included (the ones I liked especially): We also watched Annie Bany sing while the hail fell and we hid under the trees. We bought her CD and had her sign…

  • Vacation Biking Recap 2012

    Vacation Biking Recap 2012

    Once again, I recorded my cycle computer’s vacation data before heading off to work: Actual Time Moving 13:33 hours Distance 118.05 miles Average Speed 8.7 miles per hour Maximum Speed 23.0 miles per hour The average and maximum speeds were very close to last year’s data, with the distance and time much improved. This will…

    Sunriver Summer Vacation 2012, Day 7

    Our final day of vacation, like all last vacation days, was a little sad. Because we had to be out of the house by 11 and we’d already reached our biking distance goal, we didn’t ride this morning. Instead, we packed up, cleaned up, loaded up, and then took pictures. We walked through the village,…
