Portland in Pictures

And in some words. Who are we kidding? This isn't everything we did, but I pared it down as not to bore you too much. :)

We started at Pearl Bakery, where Shelley treated me
to a delicious turkey, avocado, and cream cheese sandwich
 a vanilla latte,and a vanilla cream cheese brioche. YUM.
Design in my vanilla latte.

We went to Klickitat Street, the home of Ramona Quimby!

Nearby at Grant Park there are statues of Ramona, Ribsy, and Henry Huggins. I am a huge Beverly Cleary fan, so I was way into this!

The next morning we went to Voodoo Donuts...
where apparently the magic is in the hole.
Bucket o' donuts
This is the best donut I've ever had...bacon maple bar, I love you.
Then we drove to the Oregon coast...
...and stopped at the Tilamook Cheese Factory...
...which is free....
...except that you HAVE to get some ice cream!
We had a picnic in Washington Square Park,
where I stopped to smell the roses.
We got our food from Elephant's deli and our wine from the grocery store.

Our last free activity was hiking Multnomah Falls.
It was beautiful!
Happy Hiker


  1. You are too cute! Looks like you had a fantastic time. I've only been to Portland once and that was to run the marathon. I think I need to go back and check out the scenery! :)

  2. Thanks so much for info and pictures - we love Oregon and hope to make another trip soon
