Yes, it's for another flickr 'assignment'. Every Thursday is "Happy Aloha Thursday," a group started by a Hawaiian guy living in Nebraska who was a little homesick.

So I'm celebrating by wearing my super-cool knitted lei from Jenny (but on my head because it was a little too hot around my neck), shirt for Blue Planet (cool little surf shop where I've rented boards before when Jenny took me surfing) and my surfer girl bobble toy who is taking on the waves on my head.

I'm off to the Oregon coast with Bruce (and 20 of his friends!) for a camping trip and I'm hoping to brave the very cold Pacific for a little surf adventure. It's going to be perfect weather on the coast - in the 80s, which is VERY rare. Should be good times.

Every Wednesday I go to the fabulous farmer's market in downtown Portland on my lunch hour.....

Nothing says summer like fresh strawberries :)

I thought I'd post some pics from my fun weekend roadtrip to Bend with Bruce. It was his nephew's 6th birthday as well as a 40.40404040404040 birthday party for a friend. It was a casino party and I discovered a love of roulette :)

We also hit the Deschutes Brewery (and Brewpub),

checked out the Balloons over Bend festival and Night Glow,

hung out with his family....good times all around.

And then on the way home, we stopped by Edgefield and did a little winetasting. Here's a pic of us being wine snobs and one of my arty-farty blurry wine bottle pics.

So I went to Bend for the weekend and came back a zombie....

Flickr is just so much fun. One of my flickr buddies - Jenn - (who I actually met in real life a couple weeks ago) picked the Flickr Group Roulette group for the day: Zombies Zombies Zombies. So here's my take - strawberry jam is quite effective!

I'll post some pics from my Bend trip soon....
