Wednesday means Mt. Tabor. Unfortunately, longboarding is just not the same thing without Jamison. Little buddy!
I did some runs from the bottom third or so. It’s the most efficient considering run length vs. return walking. And it does eliminate the risk of all but one blind corner, a good thing when skating alone.
The views are spectacular! My photography and the time of day don’t do it justice.
Mt. Tabor and Mt. Hood — a couple of my favorite mountains!
So nice to be back home again. Even better to be met at the airport by my sweetie. :-)
And it goes without1 saying: PDX continues to have the best carpet. ;-)
About a week ago, Suzi and I dropped Melissa off at the airport. Normally, I park on the fourth floor of short term parking because that is the skybridge floor. As I got off the ramp, I noticed the sign said one parking space was available. What?! There was a car ahead of me, too.
I dropped Suzi and Melissa off at the skybridge and looked for the ramp to go up another couple of floors. Parking above the skybridge, I saw a different view than I normally see.
Mmm… I like it! :-)
Jamison wanted a ride to the east side this morning, so I played taxi driver. While waiting for Jamison to get done, I walked Portland with Ashley’s camera. :-)
Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is a beautiful walk from the NW 23rd neighborhood. I spotted this flower along the way.
On the east bank of the Willamette River, ramps lead to the Marquam Bridge.
I’m looking forward to walking across Tilikum Crossing.
I dropped Suzi off at the airport earlier this week. Headed back to the short term parking garage, I crouched down to take a shot.
We dropped by NW 23rd, celebrating Ashley’s recent birthday with desserts at Papa Haydn. Waiting for a table for seven, we wandered a while and I snapped some shots. Fireside’s marquee, with its neon accents and witty epigram, won the evening.1
