Pacific Northwest: Portland

Pin It
We visited Portland for the first time four years ago. Right after Obama took office. So, when Obama won again, we decided it was time to go back, and head further north. Our eight day trip started and ended in Portland, OR. A rainy, leafy city, where we stayed with friends in their charming farmhouse. We didn't do much besides eat, drink, walk around, and eat, drink some more.
Although everyone enjoys poking fun of Portland, there's something lovely about the city that resonates with me. I love the rain, the cute neighborhoods and everyone complaining about a 15 minute commute into town. I wouldn't mind living there when I'm all grown up. 
 Tuna melt at Lardos. 
 A rainy tour of the Japanese Gardens.
 Lost in Powell's. 
 A delicious meal for our first night in town.
 This was somebody's first time wine tasting. 
 This goat was such a poser. It ran up to me, squatted and took a very long, loud piss. 
 Tipsy times.
 Late night stroll through Kenton. 
 Oyster hash at Bijou Cafe. If only I could start every morning with fried oysters, I'd be so happy at work. 
 Amnesia Brewing.
Mr. Stalin and the goon squad. 
 Cascade Brewing.
Pok Pok, round two. The most amazing Thai food, outside of Thailand. We liked it so much, we went twice! 
 Goodbye brunch at Clyde Common, featuring braised pork perogies in pumpkin sauce. 
Up next: Seattle. Where it disappointingly didn't rain.
