Red Echo

May 31, 2011

I spent the weekend in Portland with Ava, visiting a couple of her friends who recently moved over from Melbourne. We roamed around downtown, stopped in at a coffee shop so snobbish it was positively entertaining, wandered through the Saturday Market, visited the Multnomah County Fair… We tried to go look at the waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge, but hundreds of other people had the same idea so there was nowhere to park. Oh, well – some other time I’ll go back on a motorcycle, since that windy little road looks like great fun. We were more successful with a trip to the Acropolis Steakhouse… and while we only managed to visit about half the rooms at Powell’s, we stumbled out, eyes glazed over, with a dozen new books between us. Yay, Portland.

  1. Totally know the eyes glazed over feeling due to the pleasure of Powell’s. Love that place.
