Einen lieben Nikolaus Euch allen! Ich habe die Stiefel meines Patenkindes und seines Bruders bereits gefüllt – das ist genauso aufregend wie selber Stiefel rausstellen- LOL.
Happy St. Nicolaus Day! I already filled the boots of my little godson and his brother (that is the German custom – the kids place their self polished shoes/boots the night before the 6th outside and if they were nice they get them filled with Sweets by St. Nicolaus). I was as excited to fill them as I used to be excited to receive them as a kid – LOL
But her are more pictures of Portland and…Waterfalls :-)
I really loved the brick buildings in Portland – I have a soft spot for brick buildings!
and for pizza – LOL
oh and for coffee
The coolest thing on our last day in Portland was the huge Saturday Art Market. Wow. Lot’s of stands with wonderful self screen printed T-Shirts, self sewn clothing, self crafted jewelery, lamps, wallets, purses, – everything just handcrafted. This places spilled over with colors and inspiration – I was so so happy there! I bought myself some beautiful earrings and we bought a lot of cat and dog toys (well….we have a soft spot for animals too – LOL)
And we did all this whiles listening to this wonderful group of young people singing 80s songs a Capella- awesome
And then we went back to Seattle – with a picnic in the car and a different route this time – the Historic Columbia River Highway. BEAUTIFUL.
We had our picnic outside in the sun – still pretty cold – with this view:
And Waterfall number I. on our way…I have to look up the name again – mmmhhh
And then a little big bigger – the Bridal Veil Falls – you hear it around the corner while hiking:
And then the Multnomah Falls which are the second highest year round waterfalls in the United States – pretty impressive – I tell you!
It rained – and so I did not a lot of photos there -my little camera got wet :( – this is just the upper part of the waterfall.
and the lower part of the waterfall – you have to connect those two photos in your mind- LOL
And some last impressions before it got dark
The next day we flew back to Newark on the Eastcoast and more with the last photos about it later :-)
Have a gorgeous Saturday!
