I love the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association dragon boat races held during Rose Festival.

It's fun to be on a team with friends/team mates. I like when my team mates stop the boat, and I can paddle the full, weighted down boat all by myself. The Max is helpful for getting me downtown. Dragon boats makes me want to be a privateer, even more! The only time I get sea/motion sick is when i quit paddling.
I'm the one with the hair
Joining a team sport like dragon boats, is good, and helpful for meeting friends too. Make sure you write your name all over your paddle, so no one else takes it.

Wasabi Green could only muster the energy to smile after the race
Make sure you don't fall in the Willamette. The Willamette it's like someone from England liked the Thames River in England so much, they decided to make one in Portland too! I especially like it because I get to go to a pottery class right after it!
PS- Don't leave your mouth open when you paddle, or prepare to taste the Willamette's furry!!!
The geese are the only ones with the gall to swim in the Willamette
I'm sure, if I did get to go to Heaven, Snickersnee, is what it would be like!
I went in, and there were knives and swords all over the place. I wish I had enough money for them all. Although my dreams were partially fulfilled with the knife, axe and sword, that I could afford.
Snickersnee made me feel like a Viking again, with a backstage pass to Valhalla!
Snickersnee is in Winchester Bay on the Oregon Coast
I had to get this knife, because the blue gem in the sheath looked so awesome, and the dragons on the handle and the sheath, looked pretty awesome too!
I walked in and saw this one, and just fell in love with Snickersnee, all over again. The poster that came with it wasn't too bad either! If you love this sword too, then check it out, in the movie Heavy Metal.
Now this axe, just screamed at me to buy it, just felt so good in my hands, i knew we were meant to be together...
In a few days I will post more pictures, and maybe a little later even some more swords.
