Mexico Mango and Traveling Fruits

This week I ate the most delicious Mango… It was perfectly ripe, perhaps a tad over ripe, colorful, juicy, sweet and tangy. Absolute perfection as far as I’m concerned. I love fruit and mangos are high on my list along with peaches, plums, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, pineapples…This is my favorite time of year for fruit and that sweet Mexico mango made my day.West End News _ Mexico mango

I realize there is an emphasis on locally grown and locally sourced food in many restaurants and markets. This movement is intensifying here in Portland.

“We should all be eating more local food,” I hear from friends and farmers at the farmer’s market.

It just makes sense. So, this year I’m doing a bit of local growing. A few friends of mine and I started a garden in the West End. So far we’ve enjoyed a delicious bounty of peas, turnips, beats, radishes, lettuce and now the peppers and tomatoes are coming in. Soon we’ll have lots of squash and pumpkin.

Susan, Nancy and Kelly at the Ice Boat Races – Feb 4, 2018

Winter Carnival in Quebec City was amazing! A spur of the moment trip for me and Nancy at Adventure Marketplace made it terrific. I have only taken 1 other bus trip, but for the Carnival, it was the perfect option. I didn’t have to worry about parking, my luggage, or arranging transportation. All done flawlessly. Although several group activities were scheduled, I especially appreciated the detailed information Nancy provided and the opportunity to explore the carnival at my own pace. I would definitely take another trip with Adventure Marketplace!
