Off to Pedal in Bend
GREETINGS FROM PORTLAND, OREGON!
We arrived yesterday morning after a short nights sleep or shall I say nap! LOL
After picking up our rental and dealing with a bit of a fiasco over there. The agency had a line of customers and no cars!!!
I remained cool, calm and collected trusting that everything would turn out as it should. And of course it did. It turned out even better than expected.
Yet as I sat there patiently waiting for whatever was next, I was also people watching and observing how the other customers handled the situation.
There was one women in particular who was on the side of a bit rude. I could only imagine that her attitude wouldn't get her very far. And as the story would unfold and everything went beyond what I could've asked for, her story wasn't quite as pleasant and nothing was going right for her...
Actually what I mean is that everything was going right for her. Right as in how it should've went. Which always brings me back to the line of thinking where instead of wondering "why is this happening to me?" wonder "what is this teaching me?"
After driving away, we went to a lovely breakfast at one of my fave breakfast locations in Portland - Off the Griddle.
-see pictures below:
Next up was pedaling throughout Forest Park...
After hours and hours of pushing those pedals along, we had worked up a pretty big appetite and decided on Rudy's Pizza for dinner...
I was really impressed by how tasty the pizza was...so much so that I totally over ate.
And I bet that I'll do the same on my next visit!
Today we are off on a 3+ hour drive to Bend, Oregon and straight to the trails we will go. This is a mountain biking trip and I'm pretty sure that my legs will hate me by the end of it!
I'll catch you all back here tomorrow.
Travelin' Elisa will be back soon. - Travelin' Tanya
