The Portland Rose Garden

The pictures really don't do it justice. The Portland rose garden was the most amazing rose garden I have ever seen. The roses were all giant and perfectly in bloom. It smelled amazing.

Its hard to tell from the pics just how large it really is.

UPDATE: I couldn't talk about it back then but this was the day I purchased (e:terry)'s engadgement ring. I added a petal from a yellow rose in the garden (below) to the jewelry box. I sat around in the sun all day being excited about giving it to him when I got back. People must have thought I was on drugs because I kept taking something out of my backpack and acting all smiley and excited. (e:hodown) and (e:lilho) were on text with me all day helping me pick it out.

Portland Architecture

I really didn't take enough pictures of the buidings downtown. Nothing says, "I am a tourist." like taking photos of buildings. That being said I did take a few of some old bank buildings. There were quite a few of these and they all looked really neat.

Crazy Icecream Flavors

Went out to dinner with (e:james) and (e:jim). It was great seeing them and catching up. Afterwards we went to go eat ice cream. The place had the craziest flavors. Sadly, they were all out of olive oil flavor. Apparently that one was Oprah's fav.

Two beds and a grilled artichoke

Seems like a good start to the trip. I tried to go to dinner at Hamburger Mary's but as I was waiting for a table I heard them calling bingo numbers and decided I wasnt ready for that so I left.

The homeless population here is so confusing. Many of them seem to be opt-in teens and 20 somethings.

The conference schedule runs from 9am till like 9pm. Let's hope I have both the stamina and battery power for that. I only brought the MacBook air and I still haven't really tested out its battery at all.
