my walk took me thorugh laurelhurst, laurelhurst park, ne sandy, ne glisan, ne broadway, irvington, irvington park, then north. i saw some amazing homes. laurelhurst and irvington are portland's jewels of old portland architecture. people in these neighborhoods also take care of their homes and yard. one doesn't find random grafitti or trash about.
as i came upon ne 21st and broadway, i turned north and discovered i was walking by the church where i was babtised 35 years ago. haven't been there since.
in the end, it was sweaty and my feet hurt. i enjoyed the walk and wish i had a few hours everyday to explore the streets of portland. maybe i do and just don't know it. hmmmm. lelo challenged me (in a way) to try and walk all of portland's streets. i wonder if that is possible. i guess i have a few years before i get old to do that. i'll keep you posted.
after returning home and cooling down, we decided to walk down to Lovely Hula Hands off n. mississippi for din din. wow, what an amazing dinner. i chose the burger as i had to do the comparison to higgins/cafe castagna. wow, i was not dissapointed and i have to say - Higgins, you got some competition. the dinner and drinks were superb and the service top notch. if you've never been, get up and go! 25,000 steps friday.
