First, out the door, around the corner and up the steps. Please note the uh... lush vegetation.
At the end of my street, I turn and start going down the hill. Check out the amazing view of Mt. Hood. Well... it's there, I promise.
Two blocks down, take a peek down the side street at Mt. St. Helens. Again... I promise it's there.
At this point I've been walking for about 5 minutes, and I'm ready for a bit of a pit stop.
Fortunately there's a Plaid Panties right there.
It's time for a healthy breakfast! (It says "Dr."- it has to be healthy!)
Another block, and work comes into view. It's still about another 3 minute walk.
And that's how I get to work, on my own two feet. The way there is fine, all downhill. But you know what they say - what goes down, must come up.But it's not all bad, I get to walk past this beautiful mountain stream. You can almost see the salmon swimming up stream.
But when I'm not walking to & from work, or waiting for the #8 to take me downtown (which deserves a post of it's own), I drive this beautiful 1996 Plymouth Neon. Her name is Babette, I named her on my first test drive. I've gone well over 100,000 miles with her, to Vancouver BC & Passadena CA and countless trips between Lacey WA and Portland.
And that's how I get from here to there and back again.
