The Rose City

Portland was very good to us. People were unbelievable friendly and we had some great food. Vegan this, vegetarian that.. Elaine probably took a thousand photos of her food and wished she had a bigger stomach. One of our food adventures was to Voodoo Donuts. We were blessed with almost no line and a craving for some funky donuts.

The weather was cooperative- our first day was blue skies and the next couple were rainy, gray, or misty. I got a chance to talk with a hotel maintenance man for a few minutes as Mason and I started bundling up for a walk in the rain and he had some great, but casual words of advice

Rain or shine, you’ve got to enjoy your day.

My shoes got soaked on our walk, but looking back that walk was one of my favorite parts of this trip so far.

It would take a long time to recap everything that we did but highlights were walking the city, getting an endless supply of good food, walking through Washington Park, driving the Eastside during Mason’s naps, and hanging out with Elaine’s cousin Rich, his wife Courtney, and daughter Sophia.

Here are a few more photo collages of food trucks, park walks, and of course Powell’s City of Books…

Portland, the City of Roses, Stumptown… call it what you will but we had a great time and thank you for a great few days.

    This has been a most satisfying vacation for you three. I’m so glad. Thanks for sharing the highlights. That honestly can’t be Mason walking away from the camera at Powell books! He’s that tall? Love, Mom
