Portland trip

We were in Portland,  Oregon the last two days.
Our hotel was just to the left.  We got to watch teams practicing for the Dragon Boat races
which takes place during the Rose Festival (June-ish as I recall).
This whole area has been developed since the times my family moved thru the area (65, 71 and 83)
and it is gorgeous.

Say what you will about Veruca, she was very clear about her desires.

what did tar and abby do whilst you were gone? and did the gnomes get wasted and trash the place?

I know that area; the steel railroad bridge in the background, the willamette river...the ex-husband lives in salem and works for the state.

Daughter stayed home and babysat the dogs. Gnomes under control (as far as we know...)

Portland. One of the few cities in which I would like to live.

I can (vaguely) remember Portland from the late 70s. I'm sure it doesn't even look like it once did.
