Crazy Norwegians (Fish and Chips)

5/7/16 (Saturday) in Port Orford, OR (Camp Blanco-GS)

If you are near Port Orford and you like seafood, especially fish and chips, we highly recommend that you stop at Crazy Norwegians (right on US 101) for lunch or dinner. We’re not the only ones. I’ve included a photo of an article showing the top ten places for seafood on the coast. This one is listed at #2! Their fish (fresh cod from Alaska) is very lightly battered with a tempura. Cooked to perfection, flaking off as you bite or put a fork to it. John had suggested that I take my Mother’s Day dinner out on Saturday, before the crowds, so that’s why this special treat. We even had to wait anyway, at lunch time, because it was full when we arrived, so I got a shot of the ocean from walking distance. Only 11 tables. Outside could use some paint, but food is very good, with excellent service.

Still really windy. Crossing my fingers is lets up by Tuesday.



About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
