Portland! Oregon!

Had a wonderful travel to Oregon.  I've loved Portland for years.  A great city to get my 'urban fix'. Eminently walkable, vital but still on a smaller scale.  Tutto bene friendly and cool of attitude.  My son and daughter-in-law moved to Oregon 2 years ago, so now Oregon has become an annual trip.  Lucky me. Thanks kids!

We fly into Eugene and we like to stay in the U of O campus area, funky and fun.  My son lives in a small city south of Eugene, where they have managed to gather an wonderful 'family' of interesting people.  We then traveled to Portland up some of the coastal road, which was neat, even though most of the time we couldn't actually see the ocean herself due to fog.  A side trip to he funky city of Astoria. And then time in Portland.

In Portland ,we stayed in a cozy rental apartment in the Nobb Hill/Alphabet District area of Portland, which has become our favorite area, our 'home' in Portland.  Walking, walking, walking and oh the many restaurants, breweries and coffee shop.  A perfecto urban venture.

I collected my usual photos of oddities, signs, murals and the like, capturing the oddling vibe I seem to need to have.  Lucky me.
