pdx/sea, no. 3
while in portland, i was very happy to meet up with some online friends, 2 photographers that i admire very much – stephanie and abby. i shared breakfast with abby at byways, a quirky restaurant in the pearl that had delicious food and the best mugs. and then i had a really fun lunch with stephanie at clyde common – everything we ate was so good, but i do think the french fries with harissa were a highlight for me (as well as that ninkasi IPA!). both stephanie and abby were such a pleasure to hang out with.
also pictured above are 2 good places that i visited in pdx, recommended by stephanie and abby. first, half and half — a small coffee shop that served courier coffee (youngna, it was great!) and provided a great place to sit and read a book. also, frances may, a nicely curated shop carrying men’s (and women’s) clothing.
it makes me really happy to have made lots of new friends via this blog and flickr, and it’s even better to be able to get together and chat with them over a meal. such good stuff.
a happy october to you (i do wish this year would slow down, don’t you?)
