We went to Portland!: part 11

After we spent our first day driving along the Columbia River, we decided to spend our second day exploring more of Portland.  We started off by going to the Saturday Market, which was great. But, we were hungry and we don't really like trinkets so we wandered right through and out. We did spend some time exploring old town and found the homeless/homeless by choice population. During our wandering, we also found some of the famous signs that you see whenever you google Portland. Also, we walked by Voodoo Donuts several times and each time the line got longer and longer. Even in rain.

After our morning exploring old town Portland, we went back to the hotel so Brenden could run.  Now, I'd like to take a moment to talk about the amazing bed. The beds at the Hotel Deluxe are wonderful fluffy clouds. Every morning, we chose to sleep in just a little longer so we could enjoy that bed.

After Brenden went running, we decided to eat, drink and experience some Portland rain. We went to a couple different bars in old town, and it rained the whole time but it wasn't so bad. It was nice to be chilly for a little while.
