We went wild and had an entire weekend of fun. Since moving to Seattle people have been telling us to visit Portland. It took five months but we finally made the trip down south with our two wonderful friends, Hisam and Roberto. We rode the Bolt Bus, very cheap, which was extremely beneficial because we never worried about parking – you can walk everywhere – and used Hotel Tonight for reasonable last-minute hotel stays (if you’re brave enough to book a place day-of).
Arriving late and with perfect weather we, of course, weren’t ready for bed. Food……..we were all starving after the 3 hour journey so we found a hip late-night diner around the corner and ordered a massive omelet. We love breakfast for dinner. The next morning was Portland’s annual flower parade including marching bands, seed covered floats, shaved llamas, Clydesdales, 70’s music, and dancing older women. This parade had it all! As you can see below, cool faces were a must that day.
Voodoo Doughnuts. You need to go to this place if you visit Portland. The line is constantly wrapped around the corner, but so worth the wait. A great snack after dancing like crazy Saturday night. (What you’re not seeing photos of is the world’s largest naked bike ride that we happened across while walking from dinner, speechless.)
Our last day found us eating bunch at Mothers, a fantastic restaurant that we highly recommend if you visit Portland. They had very cool chandeliers.
Probably our coolest pose.
