I am nearing the end of my Portland R&R. I spent two nights with my friend “C” and her hubby David–gracious hosts both.
During my time here i have been able to confirm that Portland is a bike haven. It is also a hipster paradise–lots of “counter-culture”. I ate quick breakfast at Voodoo Donuts today–a maple-bacon piece of manna from heaven.
Then I rode to Oregon City to stay with my “sis” Donna. Met her hubby Mike too! Got a tour of the countryside–Mike’s family history is farming.
That reminds me-Portland’s manner for handling owning type issues seems to be benign neglect- being eclectic overshadows everything else. Farms exist within what would consider to be the city limits. Cows,chickens, goats, etc, seem to be everywhere. It really is quite interesting!
