Saltzman, Powell’s, and Pix

A packed gravel climb. Damp and lush. Up through the ferns and moss encrusted trees. Settling mist. Slick fist sized rocks. The wrong day to wear a white jersey spracherkennung herunterladen. But, maybe Portland isn’t a white jersey city any day of the year. Too many chances to take it off the pavement and through the woods, even if you are running 23c slick road tires herunterladen.

Steven Hunter and I wind our way to the top. Him on his cross bike and me on the Break-Away road bike wikipedia kostenlos herunterladen. A quick pause for some food and to take off my jacket. An executive decision is made, a return down the rocky path rather than heading up onto Skyline disney plus app herunterladen tv. We reconnect with Leif Erickson and then rediscover pavement. Finally. There were points where my teeth wanted to rattle themselves out of my head and I couldn’t tell if my hands were still connected to my handlebars, let alone working the brakes netflix online herunterladen. Proof of this is a section of seat post which has been denuded. My seat bag was shaking so violently for such a long time that the around the seatpost strap, in conjunction with the dirt that found its way under the strap, was able to take the paint all the way down to the aluminum pc roms download for free. Aside from the scared seatpost it was a descent with out issue.

Saving us some cash and making pickup and delivery easy since her casa was only 6 or 7 blocks from our front door. We rolled down to Powell’s Books herunterladen. Yes, this bookstore is a destination. Prepare to be overwhelmed and risk becoming lost among the labyrinth of rooms. Book shelves full of the new and used reach to the ceiling, dwarfing the readers wandering among their aisles free youtube to mp3 converter for free 2017.

A random snack and then off to the Esplanade to catch the sunset over the river. A city of bikes but also of bridges. Some of steel, other of stone, built in various decades, all interesting in their architecture. Two commuter trains, full of light, pass in opposite directions over the Steel Bridge. Dinner and then the capstone of the evening, a patisserie. Pix. I indulge in the Amélie. Orange vanilla crème brûlée siting atop a glazed chocolate mousse with caramelized hazelnuts, praline crisp, and Cointreau génoise. Sarah selects the Chipotle Chocolate and a Fleur de Sel Macaron. These are deserts you savor. Half bites. Making it last. Drawing out the experience. Delaying the inevitable.
