New Years in PDX

PDX was once again graced with Dave's presence this past week. We kept ourselves busy doing classic Portland activities, like going to Powell's and the Japanese Gardens. But the week was also filled with new discoveries, mainly food-related of course, such as Yama Sushi, brunch at Roost (which was our favorite), Pine State Biscuits, and the Bunk Sandwiches food cart (conveniently located outside the bar on New Year's Eve). We hiked near the Audubon Society, which I haven't done since grade school, and got to meet a raven and an owl. We also saw Lily, the new baby elephant at The Oregon Zoo, cheered on the Blazers at the Rose Garden and heard the funky soul music of Reva Devito (who I thought was great :)  Happy New Years everyone!
