While in Portland I was fortunate enough to climb some incredible hills and mountains to see some gorgeous waterfalls and/or views. Here's a variety of places I saw.
Our friends David and Andrew came up to visit us the following week Jane and Archi left. These two cats are a riot! My cheeks were in constant pain from laughing so much throughout their visit. Their stay was filled with facing fears, grubbing on Asian cuisine ( +ice cream!), and exploring areas of Portland that Joe and I haven't seen. I think the photos below will sum up their five day stay (not long enough!). We can't wait to be back in our hometown to visit them and the rest of our friends and family.
In the past couple of weeks Joe and I were lucky enough that our friends from LA came up to visit and stay with us for a few days. It was so refreshing to be around the chill LA vibes and culture, it was truly missed. Jane and Archi enjoyed site seeing and exploring the lush areas of the town. We ate A LOT, stayed up late catching up with life, and watched reruns of The Walking Dead. Our place felt empty when they left, but that just means we have to do a LA visit soon!
I do have to admit that aside from the constant rain and persistent cold days, Portland is a beautiful city. I recently went to Wahclella Falls and Cannon Beach and got to experience an abundance of nature. I never knew that I'd be so happy for the weather to turn 60°F!
