Friday we had a few hours to spare before our granddaughter’s gymnastics competition was to begin. So we spent a few hours at the Japanese Garden in Washington Park in Portland. I’d heard a lot about the gardens and have wanted to see them. I wasn’t disappointed. I loved it there.
Portland gets a fair amount of rain so everything in green, green, green. At the Japanese Garden we were surrounded by lush green throughout the entire garden. It is a very peaceful, relaxing place with benches all through the garden where you can sit, relax and enjoy the beauty.
If you do go to visit the Japanese Garden, I recommend using a tripod because of the dense overgrowth. They charge $2.00 to bring your tripod into the park, but it was worth it. I wouldn’t have been able to take many of the photos without it.
I am only posting a few of the photos here – I took a lot of photos. I plan on doing a blog in the next few days on my other page – sophisticatedkat.wordpress.com – with more details about our adventure to Portland and more photos.
