We went to the famous Powell's Book store.. largest book store in the world (I think is it's claim).. could have spent all day browsing and buying.. it has this warehouse feel and even on a Monday mid-day the place was really busy.. so I think the good ol'fashion bookstore might sustain it's self here.
|This row of books were ALL|
chapter books for kids! And there were at least 3 more like this!
I didn't take many pictures.. but here is the link to the tourist site which gives you a better sense of what Portland has to offer.. http://www.travelportland.com/ .
So far we are loving Oregon!
We leave Portland today to head back to the coast and continue south to Newport. The van repair issue wasn't as bad has we feared, so we venture on!
P.S. Had a half day of homeschooling yesterday.. it actually went well.. had them do some creative writing.. which they liked.. they both wrote about aliens.
