    Cannon Beach and its army of rocks

    Because this is when the rains make way for beach-weather in the Pacific Northwest,* let’s go see Cannon Beach on Oregon’s Coast. Cannon Beach is not just a beach but a whole city by the sea in Northern Oregon and is just around an hour and half’s drive from...
  • PhotoFeature: Portland Japanese Garden in Winter

    I seem to have an affinity for Japanese Gardens. Landscaped with rich greenery and dotted with stone and bronze sculptures not to mention the ponds in them, these gardens seem to have a soothing effect on me. When I walked in through the gates of Portland Japanese Garden, it...
  • Monday Mural | Found in Bend, OR

    Back in the summer, we spent some time in Oregon. While we were in Central Oregon, I came across a couple of murals in Bend – OR. The first piece of art looks like a picture of the Three Sisters and a part of the Deschutes River that flows through...

  • Monday Mural | Found in Astoria

    Today we go further north — from Portland to Astoria in Oregon. I found these murals in the seaside town of Astoria in (northwestern) Oregon. Astoria, which lies at the intersection of the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia river has many stories to tell: of Native Americans, shipwrecks and trade. Now lets...
  • MondayMural | Found in Portland
