Weather in the upper 60’s plus the backyard fence being just posts while it’s being repaired equals a walk with Gilligan to Starbucks and Suzi’s work to deliver a special treat. Five miles later, we have a tired doggie. Success!
To celebrate Heather’s recent birthday, on Friday afternoon Heather and I went downtown Portland and walked around. We visited the cutest puppies at Pioneer Courthouse and walked around The Bite of Oregon to get to the waterfront. We walked by city hall, the parks, and into the Pearl. We found REI and window-shopped their bikes,… Continue reading Portland Walk With Heather
My shoes took a walk during lunch and took some pictures along the way.
Hillsboro is back to October weather: instead of yesterday’s blue skies and 73°, today is overcast and might reach 62°. In other words, it’s beautiful!

I snapped pictures of fall leaves in between kicking and stomping the acorns scattered… Continue reading Mid-October Lunchtime Walk

Taking advantage of my few remaining days having a short commute, I walked home from work today. I enjoyed the additional light, the flowers announcing Spring’s soon arrival, and the flowery fragrance of dryer sheets.

After all, the worst photo is the one you never take. I went exploring with Ashley yesterday and discovered that our local Barnes &… Continue reading A Few Pictures I Like
I mapped a few simple walking routes in and around the Intel Jones Farm campus. Imagine my surprise to find the routes have nice distances of 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 miles. Now I have more exercise options. ;-)
I’ve started walking after lunch or for 1:1s. According to Google maps, it’s almost exactly one mile.
