Traveling, Cooking, Reading, and Trains

With COVID-19 upon us our only outings are walks and over the past 20 years we’ve walked everywhere in the neighborhood. Portland has not issued a Shelter-In-Place order – yet; so we figured we could follow our friends recommendation and head over to the University of Portland up on the bluff on the east bank of the Willamette River.

We saw a few students and other walkers but it was very easy to keep our distance from everyone we saw. The cherry trees were in full blossom. I’ll let the pictures tell their story.

We walked along the fence line looking over the river and got a few other plants blooming.

There was also a tulip tree; it was just starting to lose its luster.

There is a shipyard below the bluff and we saw this great portable dry dock. If you look closely notice that there is a small warship inside the pontoon dry dock.

You can see all but the ship in my University of Portland Flowering Trees Flickr Album. They are also in my Foliage and Landscape Flickr album.

I hope you are self-quarantining and taking care of yourself. I wish you all good health
