Portland

We were once again in the Portland area for reasons that I will share at another time. Since I am usually in the passenger’s seat, and I realize I am repeating myself, but I am doing so for the benefit of my newest readers.. Thank you for joining me here at Words Like Honey. Things( life) has been a bit hectic but it too will pass and then we will move onto some new adventure or challenge. So, many of my photos are through the windows of our car. It is fun to see what I end up with. I often regret that the windows are dirty..Lol!We explored a different area of Portland, away from the downtown city, it was so interesting. I will have much to share and will be posting some photos at The Soul Lane. For now I will begin with this..

Mystery Woman

DSCN6285While changing channels last night I caught the tail end of a documentary on this woman painted on the wall, in the town of Cottage Grove, Or. We had stopped there on our way home one rainy afternoon to get a glimpse of the town. I took the opportunity to take as many photos as I could, despite being challenged by raindrops. I was across the street from this building and did not get a really good look at it. I recall wondering who she was. Well that was in June of 2014. To my surprise as I began watching the program, it gave me a great deal of information on the woman on the wall. Her name is Opal Whiteley. I hope that you will look her up, as she certainly has some interesting history behind her. I am including a few other photos of what we saw that day.

Rain in the City

We had to go back to Portland again. We have not learned to have an umbrella in the car with us at all times. We have a few things to learn about life in Oregon. Anyway, I have a few in the car photos to share. We did locate a place to park our car. It was worth the amount we paid to leave it in one place.
