Day 6 We goof off in Portland Oregon

Finally we get a day off with no driving...
Russell and I used the bus all day-
plus just walking 
all over downtown Portland. 

Looking down on Pioneer Square
while we take care of business.

Lunch at Deschutes Brewery in the Pearl
Some of the best French Onion soup ever!
Tomorrow? The wedding!
For more Six Word Saturdays go here:
and for Sunday Shadow Shots go here:
Have a great weekend!

    You too! (good time, I mean :) )

  12. It looks like a great place to just wander.

  13. When I moved to Portland that building with the clock on it that you're looking down on, The Jackson Tower, was the tallest building in downtown Portland. Looks tiny in your picture. I hope you're having a good time.

  14. A local brewery? Always the best spirits. Have a great time tomorrow at the wedding.

  15. What a great picture of Portland. Have a great weekend and travel safe.

  16. Nice seeing another part of Portland. My son lived there several years ago and I visited. Had a bad experience, never been back since. Rains too much to suit me.

  17. Nice, relaxing time... Sounds wonderful! :) Good for you! :)
