On Thanksgiving Day, Doug and I took a walk around downtown Portland (we drove down to Oregon for the holiday). The above pictured seagull wanted his picture taken so I obliged. Isn't he cute?This image of the White Eagle bar was taken after we learned the place is deeply haunted. Historically, this was a whore-house where black prostitutes worked from the basement while white prostitutes worked the second floor. Reportedly, numerous paranormal activities continue to happen here and ghostly apparitions have been reported walking from the bar (one of them flushes a toilet in the men's room; time after time).
We had beautiful weather, downtown. Below is a picture of our most hideously decorated Kimptom hotel room (this is supposed to have a five star rating).
Much of Oregon's architecture is so ornate with stained glass windows and art-deco worked into the exterior structures.
I loved the elaborately designed churches.
Do these heavy wooden doors look Celtic to you?
This sign was strung from the west wall of the Portland Unitarian Universalist church.
