I am thankful for Portland, OR.
Total miles: 1564.3
We stayed in Red Bluff at the Super 8. On the way home we stayed in Medford at the Shilo Inn. While in Vancouver, we stayed in the wonderful Hazel Dell neighborhood, at Grammie and Grampa’s beautiful cozy house.
We visited Powell’s Bookstore (I purchased many many books), Let It Bead (earring components, bails, eyeglass chain ends), The Playful Needle (xstitch patterns), Collage (glass tiles, paper, diamond glue, bails), SCRAP (circut boards, computer keys, BITCH magazines), Craft Warehouse (giant clothepins, stencil tampers, velvet paper, more bails), Old Glory Antique Mall (costume jewelry: peacock, bird with nest, elephant with rider).
We ate/imbibed at Andina Resturant (assorted artisanal cheeses with quince jam, Spanish-style potato fritatta with ají Amarillo aioli, grilled diver scallops with a brown sugar butter sauce and crispy onions, Peruvian tartare made with filet mignon, capers, olives, cilantro and quail egg), Deschutes Brewery (Growler of Streaking the Quad Ale), and Grammie’s house (thanks Grammie and Grampa!)
Stay tuned for the picture dump post and the details post!
