August has been a busy month. My youngest child went away to college and I spent loads of time getting everything ready for the big event.
Currently, I am visiting Portland, Oregon. Here are a few pictures. I started out in the Sellwood District, which has quite an impressive Antique Row. There is one shop in particular - Unique Antiques - and Pat directed me to the local haunts - Starz Antique Malls - in the Westmoreland District. East of there is the impressive, free-thinking Reed College. I first read about this school in Donald Miller's book, Blue Like Jazz, which is one of my favorite books. He is a wonderful author who happens to live in Portland.
Next on the agenda is the Pearl District. Then, we are off to Seattle. There will be more pictures to follow.
Hint: when trying to maneuver around a strange city, don't ask a cab driver to take you to a general area.
