got rained on last night.

we dissembled camp in the rain but it cleared up by 10am.  I wrote this as we waited for the ferry on Puget Island.  Ellen is happy to oblige my constant hunger for black berries.  later we hit the Berry Patch in Westport and had a delicious slice of marion berry Pie.  had to laugh – Marion Barry is the ex mayor of DC.  marion berries are very similar to blackberries – but more conical i guess? 
We treated ourselves to a 42 mile day so we could stay the night in Astoria.  on the look out for goonies!  found fat lazy sea lions covering the boat docks.  astoria is a very cute town of seaside weathered victorian homes.  and breweries.  we enjoyed Fort George.  so a day of loooong climbs and rewarding downhills ends at a hostel.  dried out our stuff.  yay.

    I love black berries too! When I first moved to the west coast I was very upset to be leaving the desert behind, but the black berries were key to convincing me that maybe coast mountains were a-okay. Hope the rain lets up!

  2. Oh.. no! Berrie consumption might yield unexpected results, http://www.actionfinger.co.nz/related.gif

    I love the quilt designs next to our comments. Dad and grandpa picked a bucketful of concord grapes from Terry’s last night. They are perfect this year. Should I make grape jam? T’s making wine, too.
