It definitely doesn’t rain ALL the time in Portland Oregon. As a matter of fact, we often enjoy these unexpected explosions of early Springtime. If we weren’t true Oregonians, we’d be packing away our sweater and galoshes and pulling out the flip-flops and shorts. But, we know this is just a welcome “tease”. As I was “tooling along on my townie”, I noted that I am constantly amazed at the beauty, the cleanliness and the diversity of Portland! I enjoy seeing that “Spring had Sprung”, then bike over one of the ten outstanding bridges in downtown to the eastbank of the Willamette River and check out rowing lessons.
A little further down the eastbank is the OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) with the ever-changing array of exhibits and the IMAX theatre. More info at OMSI .
Then back across the Hawthorne Bridge to head down to the South Waterfront and check out the new construction there. Despite a challenged real estate market, they continue with the development. The park is almost finished and will add an inviting element for the enclave. The tram to OHSU still a relative new addition to the Portland skyline. Tram info (including schedule): OHSU Tram
Biking back to downtown with what seemed like the entire population of the Portland metro area all enjoying the sunshine and warmth, you would occasionally see what “keeps Portland weird”.
And, finally a bite to eat at the Saturday Market. Today market the “Grand Opening” of the 37th annual Portland Saturday Market! See Saturday Market .
