Portland was awesome—it was sad to see the dry landscape—I’ve been to Portland many times and remember the lushness of the landscape. The road side grass is dried out and brown, the rivers and creeks have little water, some are not flowing. Drought conditions without a doubt!
What I didn’t remember was the traffic—awful! We enjoyed some great meals, visited a fabulous grocery store, New Seasons Market—what I wouldn’t give to have that kind of grocery store in our neighborhood--and did a lot of shopping and sightseeing.
Sunday we headed to the airport and went our separate ways—I arrived home about 6pm, exhausted! I think I was so tired I just could not fall asleep—about 1am I thought, “where is my iPad??” I have no idea why I suddenly remembered the iPad might not be in my bag—I got up, searched the house and the car—no iPad, I must have left it in the seat back pocket. What a bummer—I filed a missing item report with Delta, the iPad is password locked—we will see what happens.
