A Day in Chicago

Karen and I decided the other day that she would take a day off during the week and we would go somewhere.  Our original plan was to head to Indianapolis for a couple of days, spend the night, that sort of thing.  The dilemma… the pups.  We wanted to take them, and could have, butContinue reading “A Day in Chicago”

Friday Adventures

Karen and I decided last week we would go out and about every Friday afternoon that she could manage it (she has to work on her blackberry while we are out) to explore a new place or restaurant or thing. Mostly that will be in Portland, but we aren’t limiting ourselves. Last week this newContinue reading “Friday Adventures”

F Market

F Market Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl The F line Street Car. We rode on one or two of these. Packed, yet awesome. The history of them, especially related to the city, is so cool. This is the last photo from our San Francisco trip. We didn’t have Rice-a-Roni, but we ate ice cream at theContinue reading “F Market”

Ghirardelli Square

Ghirardelli Square Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl We stood in Ghirardelli Square before going in to enjoy a delicious sundae. The sky was spectacular. Love clouds like this. The view ended up being almost as tasty as the Ghirardelli wares. Yes indeed.

Duking It Out

Duking It Out, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. As I said previously, we’ve wandered around Portland a few times with the kids in the last couple of weeks. I took several shots during these walks. I love this one. It’s on the wall of a 24 hour fitness.

Random, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Standing on that same street corner Karen noticed a fork randomly laying on a lamp post box (not sure if that’s the technical name for them… but there it is). I took another one as well where the fork was in focus, but I like this one… shows the backgroundContinue reading “Fork Art”

The Corner of My Eye

Huh?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. As we rode down and off the Freemont, going a pretty good speed, I held out my camera and took random photos without looking at what I was shooting. Here’s one of those.

Where’s Sandy…

Where’s Sandy…, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. After dinner at McMenamins last Friday night the four of us walked along the river. There’s a great path that runs for several miles along the river an then in to Fort Vancouver. Along this path there are some nice sculptures. This is one of them. Can you findContinue reading “Where’s Sandy…”

Grab The Rail

Grab The Rail, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This was taken right before we decided to turn around and head back to our respective vehicles. Just then the rain started to drop down. We didn’t care… after all, we live in Portland.

Big Pink

Big Pink, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here she is… the Bancorp Tower, locally and lovingly known as Big Pink, is the second tallest building in Portland. Or at least it was, which could have changed now with all the south waterfront building that’s been going on. However, I don’t believe any of those buildings areContinue reading “Big Pink”
