Snow day

Surprise snowiness that started Thursday afternoon and made driving a really slick experience last night and this morning. Still hanging around this morning and through lunch time even though it has "warmed right up" to 2 deg C (36 F).

Winter wonderland

Mid week surf near home; lucky to get away on such a fine day.

Don't be too deceived it looks warmer than it was: water temperature ~ 9 deg C, air between 1 and 5 deg C, and it was windy too.

Waves were as nice as they looked but a little tricky to make along the zippering outside section.

Got fuel for $2.94 a gallon today, around 75c per litre, still cheap by international standards, mind you, thankfully I don't need to feed some monster pickup with a 6 or 7 litre V8 [or V10] motor.

4 days of January surf and such

Took a couple of days off after going to The Dalles for work on Wednesday: it is worth the drive up the Gorge

Thursday grey and cold but fun no less

Friday sunny and cold and more fun, except for locking my keys in the car; many thanks to the folks who all helped me with that dilemma.

Saturday great but frustrating surf, many bodies in the water; it was Saturday what can ya expect?

Sunday on and off grey and cold and sunny and warm surf a bit choppy.

Friday a.m. beauty
Friday daytime
Friday evening
Saturday bodies
Sunday: Can't believe these people were so careful to place their litter so neatly...
It asks on the cup "How are we doin'" maybe they [McDs] should encourage their customers to use a trash can... it can't be any harder than this little stunt.
Unknown on a bumpy left Sunday between tides

Maybe some more surf this week even though it is butt-cold.

What I did on my holidays

December somewhere in the North Atlantic...

The house
Near Egersund

Northern light

Strange Visions

Strange visions up the beach...

Men walking on water, what next?

Waiting for more


Frosty new car

Seagull's revenge

Some rights

My buddy Chris stylin'

Known but un-named pullin' in


Waiting for surf in the new car.

Looks like some hope on the horizon... maybe like these from somewhere close on New Year's Day

Gotta start planning for my baking class next term so I bought some fresh yeast today, wish it was easier to get and cheaper in the U.S...
