[twenty ninth]

The second day in Portland was full of exploration and wander-ment (wandering + excitement).  We split a scrumptious crepe from the Saturday Market to start the morning off.  The rain began to drip down again, so we ducked into a sought after Stumptown Coffee.  Sitting at the bar drinking our hot beverages, we watched Portland life walk by.  When the rain let up, we continued our adventure by strolling through Powell's and the rest of the Pearl District. 

We also checked out NW 23rd Street based on the suggestion from several women.  It reminded me of Los Gatos, CA with its ritzy shops and outdoor cafes. This lovely apartment with whimsical architectural details was on the street and I couldn't resist snapping a few photos of it (see above).
