Exploring Portland and Beyond

1 Comment

I am now back from vacation (boo) and back to work (double boo) and back to this blog (yay!).  My trip was great, always exciting to travel and visit with friends.  I took a few pictures, but mostly just enjoyed whatever I was doing without bothering with the camera!  Here’s a run down of experiences:


Panda Express for ‘real’ Chinese food – Portland Japanese Gardens which was amazing and gorgeous – Pittock Mansion + ice storm


Newberg, OR where Rachel (and Brian and Wizard) live – Fred Meyer the mecca of all things affordable – where we bought Tillamook Ice Cream YUM


Widmer Brothers Brewery for a great behind the scenes tour – Hawthorne St. where Rachel and I enjoyed browsing the many shops – George Fox to see where Brian goes to school (and to walk Wizard)


Red Ridge Farm a gorgeous gardens area where Rachel and Brian got married! – Bubble Bubble Tea  for delicious milk black peach cold with tapioca – Homemade Spiedie Chicken Pizza


Twin Cinemas for a viewing of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ – Cargo a unique shopping experience – Saint Cupcake the most decadent mini cupcakes (and cream cheese icing!)


Powell’s to see towers/rows/floors of books! – Pho Ty to eat yummy noodle and meat dishes (pho) – Boudin to buy San Franciscan sour dough

  1. I’m glad I didn’t go, only because I would still be in Powell’s. Literally.
