Tea on the Beach

The weather here in Portland, Oregon has recently
turned to a more summery feel.
They say it won't last, but for now we are soaking up the sun.
So a quick trip to the Columbia River, about 10 minutes
from my home, to have some tea and enjoy the day.
The tea is Japanese Sencha from Harney and Sons.
A light tea to enjoy by the sea (couldn't resist the rhyme),
but really by the river.
What better way to enjoy time away than with a cup of tea,
soak up the late afternoon sun and walk along the river's edge.
 The views along the river include watching the planes
take off and land at the airport.
 Mt. Hood in the distance.
And greeting people out enjoying the day,
walking or biking along the trail.
Every time I go here I say the same thing,
why don't I come more often.
Tea, a beautiful day, and walking,
what more could I want.

Well, you can enjoy it by the sea too, just not on this particular day! It looks divine. Isn't it nice to see spring -- those lovely blue skies!
