We traveled to Portland, Oregon by train yesterday early morning. It was a beautiful sunny but cold day, and I greatly enjoyed knitting and the views along the way.
Just as we arrived in Portland the predicted snow began. First it was a cold wind and sleet that hurt your eyes. Then it changed to a fluffier softer snow. We walked quickly to Mother’s Bistro and Bar from our hotel and were thrilled to be out of the cold, enjoying an outstanding and warm lunch.
Everyone was stepping out to take selfies in the snowstorm so we did too.
I went on this trip because I had signed up for a class Thursday evening, but I received an email during the train trip that the class was cancelled due to inclement weather. So rather than go to a class, we decided to go to a bar. It looked us quite a while in a nasty snowstorm to find a cab to take us to Bushwacker’s Cider Bar in the Brooklyn neighborhood. Here is Tom enjoying a cold one.
It took us an hour to get a cab back to our hotel. I chose the Paramount because the room had a jacuzzi tub, which came in handy after battling the snow. Most businesses including restaurants were closed, but we found a pizza place 1 block from our hotel. We brought a pizza back and ate in bed watching Thursday Night Football.
We really enjoy visiting Portland but are glad to be home again.
