For my birthday trip this year, Michael and I decided to check out Oregon and Washington (since we were considering Oregon or Washington as possible future places to move to). We got there Monday 10-20 at about 12PM. My godmother came and picked us up and we went out to lunch and drove around Portland. I have to say, I was very surprised at how gorgeous Portland was. The last time I was here was about 10 years ago, so I was genuinely surprised at how beautiful and green the city was. We went to the river that runs right by downtown Portland, the Willamette River. There was a little walkway and we walked down the harbor and then drove around downtown and the Pearl District.
Here is the boat harbor on the Willamette River.
