Labor day day trip to Mt. Rainier – cannot believe things changed dramatically from this day with all the wildfires and smokes flowing in the area. – All the major roads we drove to get here and back to home was on fire at day after (SR 410, I-5, SR 167)


Tomorrow is the Day After Tomorrow

What will be the next for 2020?

On last Monday, I thought some of the neighbors are doing crazy fire pit burning but found out that was the smoke from Eastern Washington following the wind – since then no window opening although today was reasonably okay-still terrible; getting worse with sunset…

Now, the news is saying all smoke collections from California and Oregon are all of sudden turning north to march into Washington…ha ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I do miss rain….. to be fair I never hated Seattle/Washington rain… while I have hated the rain in Seoul though.. humid/sticky)

Ruby Beach

“Washington’s Beach” reset the definition of beach for me ๐Ÿ™‚ rock filled beach with fierce waves next to cliffs with pine trees. Finding myself liking these kind of beach reminds me I lived at here long enough ๐Ÿ™‚ – along with my changed stance on winter rains..

Bent my wallet for anniversary ‘Corona To-Go’ dinner for the family at early in the month – This plate made me realize good sushi is made with a bit of aging and wasabi-on-the-rice ๐Ÿ™‚ which I came to forget with ‘regular’ sushi in streets..
