The sights and sounds of another Bend summer

This will be my 23rd summer living in Bend, and it is safe to say I've seen the full spectrum of visitors who pass through Central Oregon. I hate to shock people, but the secret about this place has spread across the world with no signs of word slowing down.

Sitting at my desk, I can already see summer approaching. I "woo" in my head every time the Cycle Pub goes by, get jealous of people walking in swimsuits clearly ready to go soak up some sun in the park, and wish that I was in their shoes having a care-free weekday in Bend. To cope, I decided to poke a little bit of fun at the goofiness brought on by tourist season, knowing I've also been one of these people multiple times in my life off visiting other places. So, to prep for the influx of beer drinkers, golfers, families, outdoor lovers and folks just wanting to see some sights and have a good time I present to you my Touritisms.
