portland, my dream city

A few photos from the city of roses...

View from the teahouse's second floor at the Chinese Garden.

Pipe sculpture at McMenamin's Edgefield resort in Troutsdale. Nice place, fabulous food, but way too white for me. I mean, the place had a tribute statue of Jerry Garcia! Rock on. Tony and I got a few funny looks from other visitors who turned to gawk at "one of those interracial couples". The restaurant's offerings are to die for, though. Perfectly tender calamari, and peppered lamb chops that literally melted like butter in the mouth.

Japanese-American Memorial Park on the Waterfront.

Almost a year later....

Prompted/guilted into by a family member, I've decided to update the blog after almost a full year. What a waste of web space! I take solace knowing that other worthless blogs out there are still going strong.

The latest finished product I've knitted was months ago. A knitted box from July from: Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitters' Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures.
