I love Portland

I'm just back from an artist's date to Portland. It was just an overnight, I stayed at the youth hostel in the NW neighborhood, otherwise known as "Nob Hill". I like it because its a ten minute walk to the Pearl District downtown. Easy access to Powell's world of books and one of my favorite stores, Cargo. After spending the morning in the Pearl, buying a new book on felting by Sheila Smith and having an excellent reuben sandwich at Kenny and Zukes, I drove over to explore the Alberta Street neighorhood. From there I went to Mississippi Street which was my favorite part of the day. See a few pictures here...more to come.

Portland is inspiring!
