The harbour always offers new challenges and opportunities for capturing light. The setting and rising sun deliver great views with less definition but still tell their story in a unique and interesting way.
The view from shore captures the moment when tranquility is broken by flight ended.
While the view towards the sea anticipates a voyage beginning
A little out of the way neighbourhood across the bridge, but worth the trek. Server was extremely pleasant and attentive. Despite the very busy atmosphere for a Friday night, we were seated promptly and never had to wait for service. Would definitely re-vist the Woodsman tavern
Great food starting with some west coast oysters followed by pork and rabbit pie for me and shank for my partner. Well prepared and served at the right temperatures.
Now we find the basis for some of the great food we did find in the restaurants around Portland. The market was a joy to behold with fresh food as well as a variety of prepared foods which we sampled – including salmon bagels and tacos.
Was looking forward to trying the food trucks that we had seen on Diners/Dives and have heard about for some time. Perhaps it was the wrong weekend, or just maybe it has extended so far into every parking lot in the city, that we were expecting too much. We tried a couple as recommended and found the food blasé and uninspiring. But variety is definitely available so you can choose from almost every cuisine possible …but get to know the locals so perhaps you can improve on our experience.
A quick trip to Portland as it was Thanksgiving north of the 49th, a long weekend in US of A and a special day for us. Our first trip on the car ferry COHO from Victoria Harbour to outside of Seattle – village of Port Angeles. Then on to 10,000 foot mountains and cascading waterfalls.
