this and that - oregon jan 2015, part 3

When I go shopping at An Dong Market, I always walk through all the isles to see if there is anything new. Seldom there isn't as they always have some surprise in store for me.

Yesterday was a rare dry day here in the great Pacific Northwest in the normally soggy Oregon. I took advantage of it to go grocery shopping and my timing was great to avoid the worst traffic. I never plan my grocery shopping like most of my purchase, I let chance unfold and my instincts to decide what to buy. The truth is there are some exceptions, like the items that I use all the time, ginger, garlic, scallions etc. I usually go to the Portland East side because I can generally get what I need for the week with the least amount of fuss. I do shop at my nearby supermarkets but mostly for when I don't feel like driving across town.

crows harass and chase away hawk

I was out walking today and I captured this video. There were a colony of crows on a nearby tree making quite a commotion. On the top of a nearby sequoia tree and I spotted a large hawk sitting on top.
