Rand and I spent a few days in Portland last week. As we always do, we talked about what it would be like it we lived there. It’s a silly little fantasy brought on by too much good food and time spent with friends who are just slightly too cool for us. I imagine the tattoos I’d get if we moved to PDX (something to do with old-timey astronomical navigation charts), and the flannel shirts I’d buy. For just a second, I imagine the person I’d be if I moved to Portland.
And I realize, she’s way too cool for me.
So while relocating there won’t happen anytime soon, I can hold my own for at least a few days. Want proof? Here’s 10 photos from our last trip down.
