Costco Free Samples! -- Seattle, WA

You don't have to travel all the time to fun. There are exciting tourist things to do in our own backyard.  We went to Costco, and they gave us free ice cream.

High Desert Museum -- Bend, OR

After the volcano, we went to the High Desert Museum. We saw birds and cats and otters and pioneers and more.

Cromely says this is how people used to travel before airplanes.

Then we went to the WORLD OF OTTERS.

Cromely wouldn't let me play with the wet ones in the pool, but these beavers were pretty friendly.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument -- Bend, OR

On our last day in Bend, we tool a bit of a drive. We went to a volcano. It wasn't my first volcano. I've been to Mt. St. Helen's and Yellowstone, but they are all different.

We did get a really nice view in the Pacific Northwest May drizzle. Here I am at Lava Butte.

It was nice, but chilly and I was just as happy to get back to the car.

Old Mill Brew Wërks -- Bend, OR

In May we went to Bend, OR, to see some music.

I don't understand Cromely sometimes.  We could have gone out for ice cream, but instead he and The GF went out for beer at the Brew Werks Pub. He said it was really, really good stuff, but I don't know what he's talking about. It was kind of pretty though. They also had meat and other stuff, too.  I don't get it.

Here I am trying out for the next Apollo mission. I fit in the capsule with plenty of extra room. I'm ready for the moon!

They even had an extra Saturn V all ready to go for me to go visit the moon and come back.

I really want to fly on the Dream Chaser, though. I guess I still have to wait a while.

I wonder if I can get an upgrade on this flight...
