Portland Oregon & a sloe gin fizz

Several months ago, Jeffrey and I took the train down to Portland for a small get away. It was a fun and relaxing break filled with lots of great food, interesting sights, and lots of photos. A discussion yesterday about Portland has made me nostalgic about the trip and started both of us plotting for when we can get back.
All photos taken with Pentax K1000 (on this trip I really got comfortable with my Pentax, more to come on that later)

Portland Train station

Helser's - The best breakfast I have ever had!

Kennedy School Hotel -
The very cool school turned hotel where we stayed

The famous Portland Sign

"Well Portland Oregon and sloe gin fizz
If that ain't love then tell me what is
Well I lost my heart it didn't take no time
But that ain't all. I lost my mind in Oregon"
~ Loretta Lynn 
(duet with Jack White)

  1. Beautiful photos! Portland is at the top of my list for cities I want to visit. Isn't it great to have beautiful photos to look back on when nostalgia hits?

    Love Loretta Lynn. I listened to that album over and over and over again the year after college - brings back memories.
