I have always liked celebrating my birthday with a little travel. This year’s destination was Portland, Oregon. Serene planned a great weekend and wow, what a great town! Gorge-ous sights, some of the friendliest folks west of Minneapolis, great food (Pine State Biscuits is amazing…the soundtrack is even better than the food!), and unforgettable signs. Signs?? Yes, signs. I cannot imagine why I wouldn’t visit at least once a year. Loved it.
Michele and I hadn’t seen one another in over a year, and we finally found time to get together this weekend. Who knows when I’ll see her again (read “I HAD to bring my camera!”)? Lucky for us we got a table near a window with some awesome light. Dinner was great, but not nearly as good as the chocolate shakes!
Serene had never been to Huddart Park, and I hadn’t been in at least 7 years (which is almost like never having gone), so we decided to check it out yesterday afternoon. Grabbing my camera bag was kind of an afterthought. Really happy that I did. Our 6pm walk was full of two things: bloodthirsty mosquitoes and some amazing light. Here are a couple of my favorite shots of the day.
