This past week was full of adventures spent with someone very dear to me...
Here are some photos from one of those adventures:)
After a yummy Dutch Baby pancake for breakfast
(eaten by a sunny window overlooking some pieris in BLOOM),
we had some time to kill before lunch at Kell's...
so we tracked down a historic house that is soon to be demolished
(more on that in another post),
after a bit of trial and error,
we tracked down some very famous goats...
well, famous here in NW Oregon that is!
These are the Belmont Goats and you can meet them here:
Very soon they will be moving to a new place in the Lents area of Portland.
Aren't they simply adorable?
I definitely think so!
I wish them very well in their new home--
happy grazing guys!
happy grazing guys!
And then we were on to Kell's
where we celebrated a very early St. Patrick's Day.
After lunch, these two quarters and a dollar bill
joined a lot of other dollar bills and quarters
already on the ceiling.
All of this money will be collected soon
and given to charity.
(I LOVE that)
I know, I know...
you are asking yourself
"How does the money get UP there?"
I am most positive you are also asking yourself,
"How does the money stay UP there?"
Well, I will tell you the secret
if you promise never, ever to reveal it to anyone...
OK, I think I can trust you.
according to our wonderful Kell's waitress that is
(and she is an expert on such things)
is a little thing called
All I can say is Irish magic must be a very powerful thing because no money
showered down on us while we were there...
Here is my very yummy meal of Irish lamb stew and soda bread!
Mmm! Makes me hungry just looking at it again...
and I just scarfed down a smoothie not that many hours ago.
I also had a bite of their most yummy Shepherd's Pie...
Makes it hard to decide what to cook for St. Patrick's Day when there are all these yummy choices!
Portland is known for many things...
(actually it is known for many other things, but I don't want this post to be TOO long)
OK--I feel the need for another cute goat photo here...
Can you tell I really LOVE goats?
I wish I had brought my bigger camera though
(some how I couldn't see myself lugging it through the streets of downtown Portland though)
One last photo for today...
got to get some sleep you know:)
Have a great week!
