Pacific Basin cargo ship on the Willamette. Beautiful summer in Portland. This will be my last post. Need to take a break. Thanks to everyone for their support and comments.

close to home


















Walking to a park close to our home we pass the house in the center which has it's own little park in the front yard!  This neighborhood park is one of many in Portland and is a favorite of young and old.

spring in PDX





Cherry blossoms everywhere - close to home and along the Willamette River in downtown Portland. A very rainy March has not stopped these lovely blossoms from opening up.

old cars in great shape



Top one is a Nash Metro from the '50s and the bottom is a '53 Hudson. I'm always on the lookout for old cars and was pretty excited when I spotted these recently. I have never seen a Nash and a Hudson only once before.

seeing red





Yesterday was Valentine's day and I sure saw a lot of red around town. I've always liked that red bench next to the store called 'The Frock'. The red fence just next to it caught my eye too.And who does not love a red bug! Love was in the air!

me and my shadow


Sunny dry days this winter made me get out and take pics of myself around town. The top is at the Salmon Springs fountain downtown. The middle is near the steps down to the river downtown and the third at a street mural in south east Portland.

Citroen city



Two Citroens spotted in the last  few months - we don't see many of them here on the west coast - so I was pretty excited to see these. Mostly likely from the '50s and in very good shape.
