-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
Did you know: July 8th is video games day!?! What an idea!
Thought of the day: First day in Portland was pretty much an easy and fun kick start to our trip. Edwin had to work that day so Cheryl (she goes by both Cheryl or Ellen), Rose, and I went off on our own adventures for most of the day. But that pretty much meant eating a whole lot. We did do a hike but not without getting a little lost (but that's okay and awesome).
I'll be breaking the trip down into tinier and more numerous posts so it's easier to read and I can write more in depth about the little things that made it for lack of a better word, awesome.
Food for thought:
Succulent chicken enchiladas w/ spicy, smokey and sweet chili Colorado sauce. Say what say what!?! It all sounds good.
-Alvinism of the Wildboyz
Wake up in the morning to what we thought Portland would be; cloudy. But there was no rain.
So as you know I collect chess sets and I was hoping to find a unique that represents Portland here. It was the first thing we saw but it cost $2200. I'll pass on that grass.
Breakfast of champions! We didn't skip any meals because it gave us chances to eat new foods. Aaaaand, we added a few meals in between.
Right around the corner from Edwin's work and right before the trails. See the greenery in the next Alvinism!
