East Side Adventures

East Side Esplanade here we come!

I like to avoid all of the bike riders by walking off of the main walkway when I can - plus it smells far more interesting down here.

Hard to see in this photo, but you will notice that it is not completely grey today - we are experiencing a "sun break" for a few hours and I cannot tell you how fantastic this is. So fantastic that mama and I decided not to wait until our normal evening walkie time to run out and walk in the sunshine. This is a photo of the waterfront village, the part of the Rose Festival that I was walking through yesterday that was deserted. More intrepid folks wandering around today.

What's that? Some-thing or some-one is yelling at me.

It was this little bugger. He was singing and taunting me from his perch on the SE Washington sign. I thought he might try to "let loose" his frustration, so we didn't walk directly under him.

Mama didn't plan on us taking a dip in the dirty water, but hey, we were in the neighborhood so why not?

Splishing and a splashing means I'm gonna have to get a bath at home tonight... but who cares?

Looking handsome - ruggedly handsome.

It doesn't matter where I am, there will always be either a stick or a cone for me. This lovely piece of driftwood needs to be mine.

Mine Mine Mine

Can you hear me, Portland? THIS STICK IS MINE


I mean, I'll carry it home (at least most of the way mama)... all of this walking has made me HUNGRY

My airedale puppy, Sidney, just loves loves loves sticks and cones too! It's so funny!

Good to see things have dried out a bit your way. Nice stick!

Thanks for the trek around the eastside. We've only passed through Portland so do so enjoy your tours! That stick looked like a real find too.
