Portland Chinese Garden

Clare and I had a mellow weekend, staying in town and taking it easy. We spent Sunday afternoon at one of my places in the city; the Portland Chinese Garden. Many of the plants are flowering now and the whole garden was beautiful!

A Night in Honolulu

Tonight I'm in Honolulu on my way out to Midway for a week of fieldwork. I'm holed up on the 11th floor of a hotel on Waikiki Beach. The scene is pretty surreal, with pale, sandal shod tourists all over the place. I'm sharing the hotel with a high school band from California that is here for a competition. I hope they don't decide to practice their trombones tonight.
