Portland

 Took a train for a crazy fun weekend to Portland celebrating Nick's 50th BD with our good friends Jamie and Sherry .... stayed at the Westin... slept in a heavenly bed.... had afternoon cocktails on Hotel Nines rooftop Departures lounge complete with  an elevator encounter with Emmanuel Adebayor of Man City soccer...dinner at  Andina's for amazing Peruvian food....delicious Eggs Benny with salmon at the Riverfront....a nice walk by the river ....enjoyed the river Saturday market on Sunday.... met a women who made beautiful jewelry and was working on an applique quilt block from Kim Diehl ...... wish I would have taken a photo and bought some of her jewels.... saw lots of other great treasures as well.
Beers at Deschutes Brewery.... lots of laughter with Elvis Presley's  very funky 24 hour Church.... another very lucky  encounter with  Man City player Craig Bellamy in town playing soccer with Portland Timbers.....this time Nick  requested a photo. 

 We finished our last night with a late dinner at  Southpark...... Early to rise this morning to catch our return train.  Now we  are back home,  a little tired  and a lot sad  to say goodbye to our  friends . We had such a nice time...love, love, love this city....  I actually took a 2 day break from quilting but  managed  to still miss it a wee  bit......Pam
