I am back from Portland. It was a fast trip. I am glad I went even though it was a long drive. I went to Portland with my Mom, Dad and Grandpa. My Grandpa's 2nd wife (Teni) passed away about a month ago and last Saturday there was a memorial service and a dedication of her grave. It was nice to take Grandpa there so that he could be there and find closure.
Portland was a lot different than I thought it would be. The city looked and felt very old to me. I did love all the beautiful trees. (I kept saying "look at all the Christmas trees.) It was very green. I did get to go to the two stores that I wanted to make a pit stop at.
On Friday afternoon we stopped at a family favorite restaurant in Napa Idaho.
I had a good book to read and some Delicious trail mix.
Here is a picture of Portland looking south east over the city.
This was the bridge from Oregon to Washington.
These beautiful flowers were everywhere.
Come back tomorrow for Portland Part II.
