We didn't have a specific destination in mind...but, hey -- Portland seems like a place that would have a lot of nice restaurants, right?
|I mean, they have great public transportation, and some very interesting murals...|
|Yippee!! THIS place could be good!!|
|AND IT WAS..!! I loved that there was a decorative crawfish on my plate of delicious, sweet dungeness crab cakes!!|
Once Market starts -- we won't have a minute to spare -- so WE NEED TO GO NOW...TO ARGUABLY, THE MOST FAMOUS PLACE IN PORTLAND, OREGON..!!
|YES TO POWELL'S BOOKS. The largest independent bookstore in America...!!|
There's no harm in checking it out -- right?
|Did I already mention the fact that I came to Portland with ONLY A CARRY-ON SUITCASE?? And it was jam-packed tight when I left Iowa. I don't even have room in that bag for a silk scarf...|
|There were RACKS AND RACKS of clothes...but, hey, I've been packing up bags and bags to take BACK to the Goodwill store. Remembering that made it easy for me to resist.|
|And God knows I don't have room for SHOES or a NEW PURSE. IT'S SIMPLY OUT OF THE QUESTION....I HAVE NO SPACE...NO SPACE...!!|
|Only $18. I'm sunk...|
