A Down Day

Posted: July 16, 2014 in Ramblings

We’re all still aching from all this outdoorsman activity, so today we went into Portland. First we stopped at a yarn store called Twisted, which I’d heard of, but have never shopped at (not even online). Bought some yarn there, of course. And then we went to the Portland Fluevog store, which is absolutely gorgeous compared with the 2-car garage that is the Seattle store. I tried on a bunch of stuff and bought the Baroque Lorrain in black from the sale rack. Been looking at that one for a long time.

After this, we met Chris’ friend Wilky at the Deschutes Brewpub, just a few blocks away, and had a leisurely, entertaining meal (so leisurely that our waiter was beginning to give us dirty looks for hogging a table). We tipped him generously and left. On the way back we stopped at an outlet mall to get Chris some socks, because I’d forgotten to pack them for him, and then came back to the hotel. Since tomorrow is our last full day here, I’m doing a little prep work, though not actually packing yet.

    Did you go to Powell’s Book store. It’s quite famous as an independent bookshop[.
