Happy birthday to my little girl!

Flowing

Today’s photo comes from a college visit to Whitman College (more than four years ago as she is graduating from Oregon State University in a couple months). We were on our way back to Ashland and stopped at Multnomah Falls near Portland.

I love a good mural. They can look great in person but somewhat uninteresting in photos in my opinion. Therefore, I don’t tend to post my photos of murals. However, this one (corner of SW 12th and Washington in Portland, Oregon) is exceedingly cool for a few minutes each sunny day when the light hits it just right.

One month to go…

Oaks Pioneer Church

Oaks Pioneer Church (Portland, Oregon)

Oaks Pioneer Church was built in 1851. In 1960 the old church had fallen into disuse and was scheduled for demolition. Funds were raised to keep the church from destruction, and in 1961 the church was shipped to its current location at the edge of Sellwood Park next to the Willamette River. Oaks Pioneer Church is now listed as a Portland Historical Landmark and is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Weddings are performed here.

I stumbled upon this place on my way to the Gorge for the Dave Matthews Band Labor Day Weekend festivities. I had never been to Sellwood before, even though I’ve been to Portland many times. Great neighborhood.
