Bakery Tour

My girlfriend is a baker and pastry chef and loves all things bakery. So I made a bakery tour of the best bakeries in town, my list was 12 by the way, and we set out to hit them all in a day. Horrible idea guys as that will kill your stomach. We ended up taking home things the last few bakeries. We tried a little bit at each one sharing if we had to to save room for the next place.

Great place if you want a biscuit like a above but they started to branch out and make pop tarts which you see below. We didn’t like it as it was mint and tasted like a mint.

Spooky mint pop tart, it was around Halloween.

Proper Pie Company is another really popular place. They have sweet and savor pies and are really enjoyably. There will be a line on the weekends!

Thanks for looking, hope I made you a little hungry…

Painted Hills

I’m really glad my girlfriend mentioned the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in the Central part of Oregon. It was a different land coming from Portland and the mountains. Dry but still wonderful. This is really the first dry place I visited in my life. The heat wasn’t to bad as it was not really humid which I’m use to experiencing in Virginia during the Summer. There were a lot of interesting formations and the Painted Hills were really interesting. There was hardly anyone out there, we had the place to ourselves most of the time.

Bus to Washington

Was out with the photo group when I shot this. We met in front of the Main Street Station that they are currently renovating and should be nice when they re open a lot of it. Shops and such is what I heard about going in. It is a station also for the Megabus that will take you to Washington D.C. or New York City and beyond.
