December 18: hippie chili, industrial beach, Fred Meyer.
E&I had lunch at Proper Eats, where I ate remarkably thick chili and the biggest hunk of cornbread I've ever seen. Then we went down to the park/beach on the Northwestern most part of St. Johns, which is about as bleak and gray as you would expect it to be. Then we took in lots of color, sound and slow-moving shoppers at the Fred Meyer megastore on Lombard. then, I believe we hit the Goodwill, where I delighted virtuall virtually every woman I know by buying new pants.
