While there we....
....drank lots of Stumptown coffee
...lusted after this air plant centerpiece in the lobby of the Ace Hotel
...happened upon a taping of Portlandia outside Mike & Kelly's apartment building
...geeked out at the Pendleton fabric store
...saw some art cars, (but none that rivaled the art cars we have here in Houston)
...attended a Timbers Soccer match...
...where amazingly the most sold souvenir is a Timbers scarf. (You could tell by my awe and amazement over the scarves I'm over hot summer weather this year)
...and lastly took a really blurry, rainy, photo of the Portland sign from the car. This is the photo I would have liked to get of the sign, but I would have gotten very wet...and probably run over.
