So part two of my journey with my canadian peeps led us down to Portland to spend a day touring around the lovely little city of bridges. Our first stop was Stumptown Coffee for some delicious lattes (I had hot chocolate since I don't drink coffee).
Drinks seem so special when they are made like this. It's like you're drinking a little creation.
Of course I couldn't get enough of the buildings. I haven't shown you guys a whole lot of what I've been working on, suffice to say I am currently obsessed with architecture.
Portland is so beautiful and the buildings are insane, I was camera crazy (I'll leave it at this for now).
Our second stop was Powell's City of Books, of course. I love that place, it's the kind of store I could spend an entire day in and not have enough time. I spent most of my time here...
The illustration section was insane!
Here's a shot of Beth on our way out. I didn't see Kerry most of the time we were in there but she appeared at our rendevoux point right on schedule with an armload of books.
We had very west-coast weather when we were there and made good use of Beth's umbrella.
I just like taking photos of my feet, ha. Cute shoes though right?
We found an adorable little restaraunt called The Tin Shed and ate on the porch in the rain. We had amazing sandwiches and vegan potato salad that was way better than it sounds (I'm wary of anything labelled 'vegan').
Here's Kerry making use of her raincoat. I love this picture.
And our third stop, Pix Patisserie for some lavender creme brulee, macarons and fantastic wallpaper.
On perfect(ly tasty) passion fruit macaroon.
After our day in Portland we headed over to hang out with an author friend of Kerry's.
We went to church Sunday morning at Imago Dei, which I liked, in a ridiculous amount of rain. We didn't see Donand Miller although he goes there, ha.
The girls headed off for gelato after church. FYI- coconut gelato and church go really well together.
That's it for now. I have a bunch of scans to do of drawings I've been working on so stay tuned.
