Experiencing Portland

Portland seemed like one big carnival on this mostly sunny Saturday. We enjoyed music, food, and people watching at the farmers’ market. We also found some veggies, fruit, bread and other goodies for dinner.

Next was Portland’s Saturday Market, a place I have not visited for many years. It was packed with people, crafts, food and performers. After a late lunch on Allyson’s rooftop deck, it was a quick shopping stop and then on to Pioneer Courthouse Square, where sand sculptors and sculptures took center stage.

I’d forgotten how vibrant Portland can be in the summer, even without a major festival happening.

Eventually, we made it home to enjoy each other and the farmers’ bounty around the dining table.
