I have had many great adventures during the last ten years or so. I have seen many beautiful places and met many wonderful people through fly fishing. This trip took me to see my son, Dan, who lives in Oregon now. He sure did spoil me! A doughnut run was in order. Voodoo is definitely one shop that I had to visit while I was there. Nothing ordinary about it, that's for sure. Besides touring the city of Portland and surrounding areas, we got some fishing in too and I got to see some close friends. A perfect vacation!
Great dinners out... Tableside guacamole??? YES, PLEASE!!! This guy did a fantastic job mixing this up!
Besides the amazing food every day, there were some places to play "tourist".
The Portland Intl Rose Test Garden... WOW!!! Let's put up my favorites in one pic.
Portland is known as the "City of Roses" because the weather is ideal for growing them. There are 10,000 roses in this garden. Is that a few more than yours???
The scenery around Multnomah Falls
What else can we get in on this trip?
Let's meet up with my friends, Alice and John! They are only two hours away and we wanted to get in a bit of fishing and go crabbing!!! =) I met Alice online in a fly fishing group many years ago. We have kept up our friendship by going on a few adventures through the years. I have always wanted to visit her neck of the woods in Oregon. I finally got to do that.
My bestie, Alice.
