Busy, busy day today! First stop was the Pittock Mansion built 100 years ago on top of the highest point in Portland - - - tremendous view, spectacular garden, and opulent interior.
Also visited the Rose Test Gardens, a gorgeous 4 acre park which is home to over 400 varieties of roses.
Next stop was the Japanese Garden, said to be the most authentic Japanese Garden outside of Japan. The garden is over 5 acres of peaceful tranquility.
Then off to Portland’s China Town and the Lan Su Chinese Garden, nestled within the hustle and bustle of the center of the city. Following our tour today, we indulged ourselves in Chinese beer and great food at the Golden Horse Restaurant.
After wandering about in China Town, we briefly joined a pub crawl and stopped for desert at the Voodo Donut Shop. So much to do in Portland but so little time. . . . . at least we now know the magic is in the hole!
