I'm a little reminiscent of home today. The weather was beautiful in Dubai today and the air smelled like home, like Portland.
So I thought I would share a little of home with you. Just a peek because I know I will want to share more in the future.
These two pictures are from a Washington Park which sits in the middle or Portland City. It's the biggest national park that sits inside city limits in the nation. Yes I'm proud of that. Anyhow just a drive up a hill in the city will bring you smack dab into the middle of a dense forest with trails winding all through the park. This is something I completely took for granted living so close to it all the time. I should have spent more time there wandering around and enjoying the natural beauty of the forest.
This is the Portland Rose Garden. It's huge and has thousands of types of roses. I love it there. Totally worth the allergy attack. In fact the purple rose that I keep to the right here is my very favorite of them all.
This is the Oregon Coast. Cannon Beach to be precise. It's seriously gorgeous. And if your a fan of Goonies then you'll recogize Haystack rock.
