I’m not sure why this challenge has been harder for me. I leave home on a ride empty-headed with the best intentions, but return empty-handed. All of the photos seem to have something in them – flowers, trees, birds, the usual riffraff that keep hogging the stage – but finally a suitable image showed up.
This is one of the wharfs at the small Oregon City marina. I bikesd out there to see if the sea lions were in town. In the right season, they swim 150 miles upriver from the mouth of the Columbia and loll around on these wharfs, belching on migrating salmon.
Not today though. The salmon aren’t running, and the wharf is EMPTY.
This and the following day’s rides are the subject of the final post for our tour of Croatia and Italy, btw We’ve been back a few weeks now, endless rains are putting a damper on rides here in Portland, so it’s time to close the book. So that’s an emptiness of a different sort, I suppose.
