Portland, OR

We made it Portland, finally!  I already feel like I'm home.  We are loving it here.

I had my first (and last) Bloody Mary at breakfast.  Yuk.

We found Besaw's around the corner. Yum. Everything was great. Good thing I cleansed before I got out here, huh?

 Of course, we made a bee-line to the big toy shop in town, Finnegan's.

We ran into a peace rally. How cool is this?  Reminds me of my childhood!

Don't think you'd see this in Nashville.

Look at the dalmatian with a message!

 Lunch at Little Big Burger.

Then back to the hotel to look at our goodies!

 The kid's.


And my toys! Smurfs! I remember in high school German class, our teacher brought these back with her from Germany. I love them!

Ok, time for a siesta, now. I so seepy.

I have never been to Portland and want to go. I understand the gardens are gorgeous and there is (at least) one wonderful yarn shop!!!!!!!!

Portland is such a great town. I was there a few years ago to meet up with a fellow blogger. And HB and I lived just outside of Portland back in the 90's. Fun city!!

That first lion photo -- UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE! Sounds wonderful! Wish you could wave hello to blogger Marilyn! Will you see blogger Robin? Hope so!

LOL! I think it is so funny that one of the first things you'd see was a demonstration for peace. Welcome to the PNW, Rosemary!

Portland is a fun place to visit. They have a great antiques district and a wonderful bookstore too, called Powells.

I'm in Portland every summer. I still have not gotten a really good taste of the city. Just bits and pieces. I would love to move in for about a month and just explore to my heart's content.
