Below: The signage here in Portland just blew me away. Many of the signs I cannot post here but here are some I thought were interesting for various reasons.
The next morning we pay two dollars to park on the street in Portland. I didn’t finish dinner the night before and left four sesame crackers on the dash. “These are stale”, complains Kelly the next morning as she slowly and deliberately chews each one. “Yea, but look on the bright side”, I explain, “stale crackers have less calories.” Now with breakfast behind us we wander the busy working wharfs in the sun.
Above: A collector’s specialty bookstore is packed and stacked from floor to ceiling with thousands of books, one copy only of each book. The place looks like a hoarders den. We can barely squeeze through the tall piles of books without knocking them over.
Later we share lamb curry, palak paneer with house made cheese, coconut soup, tomato cilantro soup, hot flaky naan bread, and Desi style iceless glasses of water at India Palace on Congress street. The food is fantastic. We won’t dine out again today though due to the budget.
Above: I think this deep sea fishing vessel was converted to a tour ship?
Above: The sweet integration of both worlds, water and land, reminded me of Chicago somewhat.
