I just got back from a vacation to Portland with my hubby and son. We absolutely LOVED it. My husband's aunt took us to Lincoln City and Newport and it was awesome. We certainly don't have seals in Nashville. The coast was so different than the warm Atlantic but that doesn't dissuade the young folks from swimming. Our kid went in head first. We had plans that fell through last year to move to Montana, and one week in Portland has completely altered our thinking about where we want to live. There is no question in my mind that we will move to Oregon next year, granting an upcoming back surgery has a positive outcome. Keep those beautiful pictures coming! You folks are so lucky to live there....... who cares if it rains? We sweat 9 months out of the year here.

Ok guys/gals,

I finally finished processing all of my images from our trip out there this May. So I will post some Portland/Gorge shots here. You can the my coastal shots in the Oregon forum which I posted in as well. I must say that our visit out there exceeded our expectations in almost every way, especially with regards to the beauty of the State and city of Portland.

Here one from the Japanese Gardens:


Some Rhododendrons near the Rose Gardens in Washington Park. These flowers and many more are everywhere throughout the city:


Here is just one of the many examples of just how GREEN it is right now. We have never seen so many shades of green in our lives - road to the Gorge:


One from Bridal Veil Falls:


It seems like people in Portland and Oregon in general are really into their gardens. It must be really nice to have such great weather for all the flowers that grow wild and in people's own gardens as well.

- Derek

I'm really so glad you enjoyed it here. Like I said, you will never tire of all there is to see...as an aside did you know there was a hot springs resort very close by (in Washington). Please come back, when you have more time to go exploring. I'm sure you'll get many suggestions as to what to see & where to go! I think you would love seeing & photographing Hood River when the sailing competitions are being held. Well, thanks for such beautiful pics

Unfortunately, I will not be able to go as soon as I had wanted. I need to get my daughter settled first. But, that does not mean that I can not enjoy looking at these beautiful photos & continuing my subscription to the Portland Monthly (for newcomers & all).
