Hi all! I’m just finishing up a trip to Portland with friends. None of these Oregon posts are going to be in chronological order, but hopefully nothing will seem nonsensical. I’m starting off with our stop at the Japanese Gardens, which is pretty close to downtown Portland and located in Washington Park.
It was absolutely beautiful! And much bigger than the wonderful gardens we have in the Vancouver, Canada area. Take a peek.

It was a beautiful day when we went. No matter what, though, I’d say a trip to the Japanese Gardens is worth your while. Especially if you’re a writer! I thought of my grandmother a lot as we ambled along, taking in the curated, styled spaces in the garden.
Read in the brochure about how the rocks represent Hokaido, and the meaning behind them!
