Thanks for sharing - very nice pictures and looks like the weather mostly cooperated. We stayed at that Hilton last year for DD's college graduation. I was back last month to help her move into a new apartment but needless to say the pictures from that trip were much less interesting (think Ikea furniture).

What fun! Thanks for the link. You always take such great photos.

I have enjoyed my trips out there too. My DD and DSIL live in the area, in Beaverton. They absolutely love the area.

You got me drooling for Voodoo Donuts. They have a shop in Eugene, too, that had no line when I was there, and the donuts were just as good as PDX.

I need a new avatar, the ferry picture was taken off the deck of our former home on Bainbridge Island.

We now live in Portland, blocks from the cafe picture.

Nice Al, thanks for sharing. However, I am not sure I would be able to handle spending a night in that room with matching wallpaper and comforter.
