For the love of Portland…(Part One)

I promised I would do a few posts using the pictures z and I took with our SLR camera in Portland, OR!

First off – I loved flying with Alaska Airlines. The crew was great, the flights were smooth, and the fruit&cheese plate was amazing!

When we arrived at the Residence Inn (Portland Downtown/RiverPlace), we were greeted by a gift bag! Even though we stayed on z’s Marriott points, they still treated us so well. I <3 Marriott!

We woke up on Thursday morning (our first real day), put on our sneakers, and headed out to explore Portland.

Did you know that not only are their water fountains unique but they are also always running!?
