Harvest Day at Bauman Farms

Bauman Farms
On a nice Saturday (no rain), we decided to go and re-visit this farm, over the years this farm has grown and more commercialized, before you just pay if you like to ride something but now you have to pay to get in. Anyway, the farm stills have its charm especially the store that sells fresh apple cider and Apple Cider donuts.

Learning Japanese with native speakers

Japanese native speakers
There isn't a better way to learn any language other than talk and learn from the native speakers, after coming back from Kyoto, I pursue my Japanese study to a high gear. Getting to know these native speakers improve my memory on words and situational conversation.

First Responders Night

SW Bible Church
We come to this event because we have a burning traffic question that we need a clarification from the law enforcement officer on the road. For many years, we just speculate on this question.

Can we make a right turn if we come to an intersection and there is a RED RIGHT ARROW? The answer is YOU CAN only after you make a COMPLETE STOP.

First, we asked this question to the Radar Officer but he is not 100 percent sure, so he sent us to the motorcycle officer. Now we are happy to get the right answer.

Beaverton Night Market

Beaverton Night Market

I wanted to experiment with the night sky and night photography but still handheld. My verdict is the sensor is so sensitive, and more like dusk rather than night, I used a very high ISO to capture the images and I went to the third floor parking garage.

McMinnville Creamery - Grand Opening

Organic Farm, McMinnville, Oregon
On a cloudy Saturday morning, we drove west to see the Grand Opening of Organic Valley Creamery. We also visited the one of the organic farms that make the co-op of this creamery. As you can tell in the website I took many of the cows in the pasture.

Enjoy the site..



Learning Japanese

At an Organic Farm in McMinnville
(Meet Yuka and Risa)
Learning Japanese is easier when practiced with the native tongue. These are the exchange students who learn English for a week or so and at the same time learning the American culture.
