I'm heading home for a nice respite with the folks. Posting will be light to nonexistent. Ha! As if I haven't let weeks lapse before.
Third trip home in the past year and I have yet to post about my beloved hometown! Will have to rectify that soon. I leave you with these images taken by lil' sis on our trip home last September.
Around and about downtown Portland.
Pioneer Courthouse Square. Only in Portland would they replace a parking structure with a public park.
The Central Library. Where I used to study in high school and where lil' sis later studied too.
The children's room.
Portlandia in front of The Portland Building, designed by Michael Graves.
MAX, light rail powered by electricity and free throughout downtown.
Free city-wide Wi-Fi too. No sales tax. And home to the world's largest bookstore - Powell's!
So many places to show you when I get a chance. Gosh! I've missed mommy and daddy and good old Stumptown!
