Back from Portland

What a fabulous trip we had to Portland! I'm still amazed at how much we were able to pack in! Portland is such a green city. The public transportation is wonderful! We stayed at Kennedy School House which was a ton of fun and very different. The rooms were really large, clean and comfortable. The hotel had 3 theme bars and a couple restaurants, all of which were very good.

We toured 23rd Avenue and the Pearl District, the rose gardens, Council Crest, Powel's Book Store and took the tram to enjoy the view of the city. We dined at some funky little bistros and enjoyed a lovely dinner at the well known Jake's Famous Crawfish House. We even got lucky at Voodoo donuts and didn't have to wait in line which apparently is almost unheard of! We'll definitely be going back. I'd love to spend a few days just at Kennedy School House alone. Maybe a scrapbooking weekend girls?!
