Home again

So nice to be back home again. Even better to be met at the airport by my sweetie. :-) And it goes without saying: PDX continues to have the best carpet. ;-)


Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is a beautiful walk from the NW 23rd neighborhood. I spotted this flower along the way.

The Fireside Marquee

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.
