Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum

I finally had the opportunity to check out the glass museum last month! I had always heard great things and seen amazing pictures but these works by Washington native, Dave Chihuly is unlike anything I've ever seen. My absolute favorite section was the outdoor garden and the juxtaposition of the sculptures with the natural landscaping (I even caught some cool reflections of the needle). When I was there the Glasshouse was closed for a private event which was a bummer, so I would reccomend calling ahead to make sure everything will be open the day of your visit.

Saturday Afternoon at Pine Street Market

Four score and several Saturdays ago, a group of friends ventured into the city and set forth to a magical land filled food options as far as the eye can see. Some refer to this as a food court,  Portlanders know is as Pine Street Market.
