Day 239 and 240 – Portland

I’ve been away from my post for a couple of days due to an overnight trip to Portland on Sunday.  I thought I would have ample opportunity to take photos both days we were there, but that wasn’t the case.  But I did take my daily photo each day.  I’m cheating a little bit and combining the two days into one post.

Portland is a very interesting city.  I would love to spend several day there to just walk around and take photos.  It’s a city that invites walking.  We had dinner at a small restaurant in town and I noticed a bicycle “sculpture” on the corner.  It was made up entirely of small children’s bicycles.

We had a little time to stop at a lavender farm in Hood River.  It was a small farm, but still a very pretty setting.  If it had been a clear day, Mt. Hood would have stood out much clearer in the background.  But as it was, there was a blanket of smoke covering most of Oregon over the weekend.

  1. Great shots …. the skyliner is really good …. my pick must be the golden bike against that dramatic sky – wonderful … the lavender I can smell all the way over here.

      1. Yes, I love it too – soporific – I have a very tiny pillow with lavender inside one of my pillowcases – it make me sleep so good. I started with after my cancer treatments, I had problems with me sleep for a couple of months and I got the little pillow over internet and it works wonders.

I'd love to hear from you
