‘tonic of wildness’

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us. We can never have enough of nature.” Henry David Thoreau, (Walden or Life in the Woods)

Intoxicating to Consider

 swittersb photography red boat tropicalIntoxicating to consider, as I hear the cold East wind buffeting the side of the house tonight…a warm breeze…the cadence of the boat’s bow rising and dipping as it slices through the warm waters…light, so bright, the sunglasses fight the glare off the water, off the sand; not the snow. Clothing only worn to protect the skin, if worn at all. Warmth, radiant warmth and not a stocking cap, scarf, gloves or boots in sight. Recollections of old that take the edge off the cold.

early morning C.I. SB

The daily excursion commenced with arising at 0400, tinkering with gear, grabbing a light bite and coffee and then, as a group moving down to the boats in the bay and venturing forth at 0600.

Portland 1894 Flood: Steelhead in the Train Station

Portland’s 1894 Flood…Many Continued On With Daily Life

“Even in the biggest flood, in 1894, no one seems to have considered closing for business until the floodwaters receded. A downtown Portland hotel built a temporary false floor in its lobby, so guests could keep their feet dry. The cook at the Bureau Saloon brought a rowboat into the kitchen and stood in it while he worked. The Meier & Frank department store built raised walkways for shoppers– and shoppers came, many by boat. Erickson’s Saloon downtown — known at the time for having the world’s longest bar, a monster counter longer than two end-to-end football fields — moved onto a houseboat, which the owner anchored in the middle of the canal formerly known as Burnside Street.

Sullivan reports in his book that more than 1,500 boats crowded through the town’s streets and some folks in Chinatown staged an eight-block boat race downtown.

In the 1894 flood, one lucky angler found a very special fishing spot:  The Union Station train depot downtown. This fisherman managed to bag a 15-pound steelhead trout inside the station.”

Union Station, Portland, Oregon 1905
