Laurelhurst Park in Portland

Jackie Chan and I had a nice walk and play session in Laurelhurst Park yesterday.   After chasing sticks for a while and ignoring other dogs, he found the chilly pond.

The sign amused me.  It suggests that humans should refrain from feeding ducks so they will forage for their own food.  I imagined Jackie saying “Hey, it doesn’t say anything about dogs.  Feed me, dude!  I’m not going to forage for my dinner!”

Beaver as Seahawk Fan

Beaver as Seahawk Fan

I found this bronze beaver yesterday on a walk along the Willamette River in Portland. Note the double scarves with which Benny the Beaver is bedecked. The one on top (I swear!) is a Seattle Seahawks’ scarf. The team logo is visible. I must have missed a pre Super Bowl tailgate party in the area. This is not quite as clever to post after the Seahawks win, but I still find it amusing. The west side walkway is great, too. You can walk or bike from the Sellwood Bridge all the way up the river to downtown on a very safe paved path, and the views of the river are great.

Still life with Jackie Chan in autumn

Jackie Chan on his urban walkbout beat, wearing the latest fashions from Paris to ward off that autumn chill.  Would you believe he really likes the fall colors?  We do too.
