Music on every corner

In the places we've been in the past four weeks, I've been noticing the public pianos. Sometimes I hear them before I see them.

Sometimes I stumble on them in strange places, like this community garden.

Random pianos - who'da thought?

A visit from the yarn fairy

It appears that there is a yarn fairy in Portland. I went to the yarn store (only a block away from where we were staying) and I only bought one skein of yarn, but ended up with five and a commission for a pair of socks. How cool is that?

Gone, but not forgotten

We've been busy these days, but we're still having fun. The Captain has decided that the Americans of Portland, Oregon, are not so, well, American... (Plus IPA beer is popular there, which helped, I think.)
