Not having a car in Portland is freeing. I had scant time to explore due to that class I took but still, I had time to explore and visit some favorite places.
The network of bridges and the river interest me.
Powells is an ENTIRE block of books, folks, a whole block. I spent plenty of time there on a rainy evening.
My last AM there I walked up the street to the Nob Hill area. new to me, this spot is famed for its boutique stores. I liked this small/local business slant. It made for a good walk which I craved after sitting in a class all day.
This is a lovely neighborhood with older homes and charming apartment (?condo) buildings.
The chocolate store.
I skipped Voodoo donuts this time. Found Blue Star instead and slowly savored a Mexican Hot Chocolate delight with strong coffee. There was a surprising kick of cayenne in that chocolate morsel.
Quirk. Remember the movie? Loved it.
Just miscellany glimpses.
