this and that - oregon oct 2014, part 2

October usually is the bitter end of the windsurfing season here in Oregon. It is the transition of wind direction in the Columbia River Gorge. The prevailing wind switches from Westerly to Easterly in the months of October and November. From November to about March East wind predominates.

braised eel 紅燒白鰻

When I was an young adult living in Hong Kong. I worked in an appliance and electronic store. The hours was long and there were no weekend off nor paid holidays. Well may be a few days off. A few pastimes including going swimming at a beach at night after the store closed at 9pm. One time before a typhoon made landfall we decided to drive to Clear Water Bay to snorkel.

cockles from new zealand

I was in Costco a few days ago to look at something and I came across these small cockles that I'd never seen before. I never buy any processed food there. I don't even buy most of the produces there. I would however check out the fresh meat and seafood even though most of the time, they don't have what I want to buy.
