Spruce Goose at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum near Portland
has become one of our favorite states to visit, second only to Colorado.
Our friends Candy and Conrad introduced us to the state in 2005
when we traveled to Oregon for the Thanksgiving wine tasting events
around the Willamette valley. We had tried Oregon Pinot Noir in
the past and had loved it so this trip was a must. While there,
we stayed in Portland a couple nights and traveled to Canon Beach
where we spent a couple nights also. It was so much fun, we were
committed to return.
returned in 2007 when we stayed in Portland and explored the city
and all it has to offer. Wow, what a city.
We traveled back to Oregon in August
of 2014 to watch our friends run in a marathon. On this trip we
spent more time in Portland where Sheena met-up with an internet
friend for the first time and then it was off to the Willamette
valley to watch the race, meet up with some of our favorite wine
makers and oh, we also drank wine.
