One of the things that has been a bit of a re-adjustment for me the last few weeks is walking. Yep, plain old walking. I am now able to walk to "work", and I am completely in love with it. Of course, it helps that it is Portland in the springtime.... all the tress are flowering and smelling delicious, and the spring flowers are making their appearance. Heavenly!
I get to notice all the details on old downtown buildings that I don't have time for when zipping around in the Geo Metro. Let me tell you there are some beauties! Definitely will be needing to purchase a new camera soon - the one we currently have has begun to take blurry pics and is not that easy to lug around. Each day I'm walking I see little goodies awaiting their photo op.
While I do not have any photos to share that I am responsible for, I do have some that my little brother snapped while visiting me a couple weeks ago, and one that I found online similar to one stuck forever on my cell phone (the blog it is borrowed from is defunct) looking over the waterfront downtown. I live right on the western most edge of the city of Portland, where Washington Park and the world famous Rose Test Garden reside. I will be sharing the rose garden with you when it's in full bloom as well, but I actually love how mossy and green it is currently. Oh, do I love the Pacific NW! Hey Brian (that's my brother), get your booty back out here and take more pictures for me!!
Off I go for my walk to work - highly recommended.
