Friday Photo Memories: First Trip to Portland
I have a lot of photos. That is putting it mildly. I’ve taken tens of thousands of photos since my dad first handed me a camera when I was 8 years old. For the rest of the summer, and maybe beyond, I’m going to dive into my archives and rediscover a few fun adventures I’ve taken over the years with and without my family. Just a little something to add some oomph to your Friday as you head into the weekend.
Next week my road trip recap will bring us through Portland, Oregon. Mike and I visited back in February 2008, but hadn’t been back since. It was a very different weekend that first trip. We only spent one night. It was cold and rainy. We were just there to see a special exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. I had worked on the book for the show; my first at the job I had started a few months before.
Portland didn’t really win me over on that trip. Maybe that’s why it took us so long to go back. Over the years I had friends just rave about the city, but I didn’t see it. It was time to give it another go.
Stay tuned next week for more on our Oregon Road trip.
