A friend in South Carolina had a friend in Portland OR who agreed to play tour guide for us. Susan was just wonderful. She took us along the river gorge and we hiked/viewed all the fabulous waterfalls. Absolutely beautiful.
We visited the sturgeon/rainbow trout farm. Herman the sturgeon is "huge". I was wishing for a fishing pole and some salmon eggs... :-)))
Went to Mt St Helens. That's a spectacular sight.
Susan took us to all the great places to eat. A few of us ate clam chowder every place we could get it. The last restaurant we went to had seafood chowder...Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.We had lots of laughs....
Susan gets A++++ for her tour guide efforts. She succeeded.
We took a tour of her studio which is the entire basement floor of her house. Complete with a kitchen and full bathroom.
Next post I'll tell you about a place called "Fabric Depot" (its about 5 times the size of Mary Jo's in NC) and the chinese gardens.
