Portland Saturday -- 3/19/2011

The weather was beautiful today at Portland Saturday Market.  The sun was shining, there was no wind, we had lots of people and dogs.  It is great to see all the different types of dogs.  But wow are people interesting!  Oregon is a green state and I am serious only in Portland will you see a group of young men, one of whom was so baked that he couldn't line up his hand with his drink enough to pick it up and have no one bat an eye.

Our neighbor right next to us was Cheryl and she was Hand Painting silk scarves.  It was so cool, some she does with a paint brush others she does with a squirt bottle, like the one below.
