I just moved into my apartment in Nuremberg and took a break from unpacking to get in a walk before the temps reach the sweltering hour. Photo of the day:

Take A Break

Posted on

Yesterday was one of those days that makes you want to hop into your car, windows rolled down, music blaring as you head out on a scenic drive. I decided to take a break from organizing and packing to head out for some fresh air. My version of fresh air and scenic views….

Posted on

I took a walk down by the Southwest waterfront and then in my new neighborhood.  What I noticed was that Fall is creeping in.  I know by the dates on the calendar it has technically been here a while, but today I noticed that nature is acknowledging it too.  Here are some of my favorite shots:

Beating the heat at Cannon Beach

Portland is experiencing high temps this September – in the 90’s.  In order to beat the heat, I fled the city and headed to Cannon Beach with my friend Georgia.  It was one of the most beautiful days I’ve ever experienced on an Oregon Coast.  Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, able to stand in the water knee deep.  At one point, I was even considering putting on a bathing suit and plunging in (that thought quickly dissipated after the water temps dropped in the afternoon).  Here are some of my favorite photos from the day.
