Wanderlust in PDX

Date night for us is not the typical dinner and a movie. We like to explore new a neighborhoods, taking pictures of quirky things we see as we wander.

This week’s photo challenge at The Daily Mail is Wanderlust, so I thought I’d share a little urban wanderlust in Portland, Oregon.

One night, we drove up to the Alberta Arts District for pie at Random Order Coffeehouse and Bakery, then spent the remainder of the late evening meandering through the somewhat surreal business district along Alberta Street.

Like people watching, buildings and art and gardens also have stories to tell.

What stories do these places tell you?
