So today is my Birthday! Yeah, that’s right, I have an awesome Birthday. Beings that I had the day off (not enough work for me to stick around the rest of the week, so yeah I get a few days off), I got to go do something fun for my Birthday!. I went out into the Columbia River Gorge! I got to stop at the Portland Women’s Forum, and take some pictures of the Vista House and the Columbia River, before continuing on to the Vista House itself, and lastly going to Multnomah Falls.
It is a beautifully clear, but windy and cold winter’s day here in the beautiful Portland metro area. The roads are also generally dry in this part of the metro area at the moment, so Icy roads weren’t a problem.
I had bought myself an Iphone a few days ago, and upgraded from the basic phone I had had for a bit over two years now. It was fun being able to snap some pictures on that, and be able to upload them to the Facebook Page and Instagram while I was out on the adventure. I still have some more pictures to add to the Facebook Page that I took on my new camera, as this was its trial run, but that will be done here in a bit.
After having seen some pictures that a friend of mine had taken yesterday, as she, her husband, aunt and uncle had gone out there, it made me want to go, so I was toying with the idea, and then my Mom had a similar idea, so my Mom, Dad, and I all went out to Crown Point and Multnomah Falls together.
I am happy that we had a nice enough day here in the Portland area, and had the day off so that i could fit one more adventure in this year. I had remembered to grab Winnie the Pooh and Tigger at the last minute, so I stuck them in my purse and they came on this adventure with my parents and I.
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger started going on adventures with me, back in 2011 when I went to New York. It started out as something to take with me from Home, to remind me of Home ,but then turned into something more and they became adventure buddies. i am trying to take them on as many adventures as possible and see where all they can go with me, and take pictures of them at different spots & Landmarks when I am on adventures.
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger have been to Canada twice, the beach several times, New York once, This is their second trip to the Gorge. It is fun to see the passage of the seasons and all the places I go, with them.
Going on adventures, even short ones, like I did today is what I live for. I love being outdoors, even when it is freezing cold (and it was like 30 degrees Fahrenheit out in the area of Crown Point and Multnomah Falls), and windy as all get out it is still amazing. I get up and go to work so that I can be able to go and do stuff like this on my days off, and then be able to document it and share it will you all. I will put a couple of the pictures I took down below, but there are many more over on the Adventure is my Middle Name Facebook Page.
