So we came home from our camping trip to the Gorge just long enough to repack and went back out for a few more days. Two nice and sunny days at the coast, down amonst the dunes. Dinner one night at Craves -- possibly the best restaurant on the coast in two or three states.
It started raining about three a.m. this morning Record amounts for the area, and since the holiday traffic madness was about to be upon us, we came home. Just in time. We passed a jam on I-5 going the other way that was bumper-to-bumper stopped for more than ten miles, all the way from the Woodburn outlet stores to Wilsonville. Shoppers and a traffic accident in combo, I think.
Read a couple books while lazing about. Jane Fonda's autobiography. And the book pictured above.
If you are a Lansdale fan, all you need know is that Hap and Leonard are back. Seventh in the series. If you aren't reading Joe, you should be. Man can write. He's also something of a martial arts expert, with his own system. And he can write, did I mention?
Save for one unfortunate gun glitch -- the dreaded .38 automatic pistol, to which I have spoken a time or twelve -- the book scoots along like a Texas tornado. Check it out: Vanilla Ride.
