Being out on our adventures, there are few to no food related photos with my bike. You will see more photos of my ride along the Banks-Vernonia Bike Trail (near Portland Oregon) on my blog — — but here is my food photo for that day.

Picnic for one… PBJ, apples, string cheese and mug of tea…

Here is where I was…

In addition to sparse food photos, we have had spotty to no wifi availability for much of our trip. My blog updates happen when we do finally get to a place that has service. Fortunately I can write it all offline and publish when we get to those places. We are in Bandon Oregon at the moment and will be joining our camping group in Florence Oregon tomorrow. Having fun ;’-).

    That looks like a very nice picnic, especially your bread choice for the PB&J. I’m also a fan of string cheese.

    One more thing I’m a fan of is those arid areas along the Columbia River. Dry, barren hills along a blue body of water make up my ideal landscape.

      “Healthy bread”! For PBJ. Those canyon walls along the Columbia are beautiful.

    Looks like a great trip so far. Some fantastic scenery, crises averted and puzzle and hammock time. Those wood sculptures are well done. I’ve always loved puzzles, but I’m in middle-aged denial about needing reading glasses for close-up work like puzzles, so they aren’t that fun at the moment!

      I think I have at least a touch of ADD (attention deficit) and can sit to do a puzzle for just so long! And that is not very long. Susan can sit for hours doing a puzzle, so it is HER thing ;’-). Now — hammock time was a whole different story.

    Rich — for some reason, you reply did not make it here ;’-(. Thank you for the site to explain the water towers, but since I do not subscribe to NYTimes, I could not read it.

    That looks like a very nice lunch. I like healthy food and not healthy food, so I would be fine with the fish and chips, too! It looks like you are getting a lot of cycling in on your trip. Good planning. When we had our camper, we often ended up in places where the cycling wasn’t so good. Although we had our bicycles with us, the time we had a camper was when I cycled the least.

      Suzanne — you are right on about it all here! Food thoughts and decisions are the same with me.

      And camping with RV comes with the least amount of biking for me as well. We are at times fortunate to be someplace near a decent riding area, but this trip is not bringing enough of those. Over these next 3-4 days I may not get in any riding, and if I do the rides will be mighty short I think. Oh well, there is more to life than biking they tell me ;’-).
