I WENT TO PORTLAND...

...and it is about time I said something about it because it was pretty nice (the weather was beyond perfect and made it very hard to come back to our dry nearly 100 degree heat).

We went to Chinatown (except there wasn't much to it except these gates where I pretended I new how to pose:


And to Voodoo Donuts which has some supremely wonderful donuts (which we waited 30 minutes in line for) including a maple bar topped with bacon (I am not even too embarrassed to say that I had two of these while in Portland) and this magnificent creation whose name includes language I don't usually use but would use again in a heart beat to get my hands on another one:


And to Powell's Books which is just about my favorite place in all of Portland:


And the Rose Garden which was much busier than this picture indicates:


And had the most divine grilled cheese sandwich in this Double Decker bus:


And traveled to Multanomah Falls:


We also visited the zoo, a couple food trucks (so much fun), the water front (during Portland's Beer Fest--maybe not so much fun), and hit Burgerville for their to-die-for milkshakes (4 times).

Really, the only thing missing was a trip to the coast--next time...

I really wanted one of those bacon donuts from Voodoo when I was in Portland but it was near the end of the day and they were all out of ALL the exciting donuts. Glad you got yours.
