Fish-Fred

Portland, last sightseeing day

I began the day meeting oregon_katy from piffle for breakfast at Bijou,Cafe, where we both had fresh orange juice and brioche French toast and piffled. Topics included Portland sightseeing, cats, geology, her work as a receptionist at a vet, animal rescues, beaver predation on trees, other pifflers we've met, and more.

I then headed back to the hotel to meet up with Todd, John, and our local guy, Bruce, who'd agreed to take us out to Mt. Hood. Collapse )

We drove back to town, collected 2 others who have arrived for the meeting, and went (without John, who wanted an early night) to Typhoon for Thai. I am now replete with Drunken Noodles, and am only disappointed that Moonstruck Chocolates was closed when we walked by.
