Portland in Pictures and Food

This past long weekend Dave, myself and 3 other couples drove down to Portland via Seattle.  We ate, we drank, we hiked and walked the city.

Above is the amazing ice cream selection at Salt & Straw.  The ice cream is so flavourful that we went twice.  Their Sea Salt & Caramel Ribbons is there most popular and very, very delicious, but my favourite has to be the Arbequina Olive Oil, made from oil produced right in Oregon.  Pure happiness in my mouth as you can see from the picture below, we were all pretty happy.

And yes, that is Dave holding a box from Voodoo Donuts.  It is one of the landmarks that we had yet to experience.  So after the famous maple bacon donut, we went for BBQ and then off to Salt & Straw.  And we all look like happy clams.

Mmm, bacon.  The other donut is a Raspberry Romeo.  Don’t worry though, we didn’t eat them both at the same time, we saved the Romeo for breakfast the next day.  :)

This is another totally delicious breakfast we had.  It’s called the Oregon Croissant.  It has the famous Oregon Marionberry, which we learned about on Portlandia.  I think this is the most amazing croissant I have ever had in my life.

I’ll tell you something we didn’t have a lot of…

Things are so cheap in Portland, they make origami from their money.

We did do some exercises though.  We took a beautiful hike to Triple Falls about 40 minutes outside of Oregon where we saw 6 water falls including this beauty.

We had such a great trip and it wouldn’t be complete without some beer for Dave and I.  

Washed down by some water.

Of course, I won’t lie, there was also a little bit of this…

Keep it weird Portland!  See you next year.
