Tuesday. Travelled to Seaside yesterday from Vashon.  Took 3 hours on a bus to get to Portland, then 2 hours west to get to Seaside.  Seaside is a really pretty little town, but alot bigger then Vashon!  Today we had a lazy day as the weather was quite crap, so caught up on some washing and Jason did some work.  We went for a walk into town and found about 10 shops in a row that were Factory Outlets.  I found the Skechers shoes that I tried so hard to get in Australia here that were only $45 :( Maybe I'll get them at Christmas time.

Wednesday. Today the weather was a bit better so we went Kayaking in the river that runs at the back of the hostel.  This was pretty fun and different.  The tide was out so some bits we had to get out and drag the kayak past the sand bars!  Freeezing water.  We saw lots of people fishing and catching crabs.  There was one guy there with about 5/6 and he said he had been there for about 2.5 hours.  He was catching them with just a rake and picking them up!

Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Just chilled out and read a book. Jason has been working.  Went for a really nice walk along the beach.  I'll put photos up later.  It is unbelievable how many people have American flags flying out the front of their houses! There is also alot of people with Obama or whatever signs in their front lawn.  Everyone feels so strongly towards their country and political decisions. I have found a new favourite alcholic drink.. Mike's hard cranberry lemonade.  $7.50 for a 6 pack is sweet. I like the self checkout at the supermarket too.  Pity the Aussie dollar isn't going up but down!
