Sunday 24 March
Amiable Portland was the most pleasant City the tour has stopped
at to date (in my opinion). Located 78 miles from the Pacific on
the Willomette River in Central Oregon. The city flourished in the
18th Century as a busy port. It is now home to the Trial Blazers
NBA Franchise and the home of sport-ware manufacturers NIKE!
Our stop coincided with the serious need to visit the launderette,
a task we all undertook with the enthusiasm of an asthmatic ant
carrying ten bags of heavy shopping!
Being Sunday, Chris cooked a beautiful bacon and egg roast dinner
and Tim offered mass, said the rosary and heard everybodys
confession in time for the start of the Oscar Ceremony.
The primary reason for our visit to this beautiful neck of the
. the gig, which was I believe, the best to
date. The venue The Blackbird was cool and the sound
just right. We had two articles in the local rags. One complimentary,
the other not so. Ah well, todays news, tomorrows chip papers!
Next stop San Francisco baby!
