Kristen and Kelly's Trip to Portland - Friday

Today is Friday, but I'm just getting around to describing our Thursday travels. 

Kelly was back at Bullseye Glass, so Kristen, Tim and I went to the regular Alla Prima Portland meeting in Multnomah Village.   Everyone was very interested and impressed as Kristen introduced herself and shared samples of her artwork with us.

After the meeting, Kristen suggested we check out the Grotto, a beautiful Catholic shrine / botanical garden in Portland.  Tim and I had never been there before, and we were not disappointed.

Thankfully, the rain was holding off, so we decided to run over to the Japanese Garden, also in Portland.

After dinner, we headed back to the waterfront for a relaxing drink, and were treated to watching this family of Canadian geese get a snack before bedtime.

It was the most calm, meditative day of the trip.

Kristen and Kelly are meeting with other friends today.

Tomorrow we head for the coast.
