July 14, 2014

Woke up in Oregon at 4:30am to catch a 6:45am flight.
Landed just in time to go straight to work!

This is an exhausted me after too much food, too much beer, too many miles traveled :)

Oregon fast and furious

Made a fast get-away after work to begin a nonstop Oregon 84 hour adventure.

 Powell Bookstore is largest independent chain of bookstores
Made it to Portland just in time to peruse some books 

Deschutes Brewery; award winning craft beer pub
and have some micro-brews...

Next morning picked up a rental car for 5 HOUR drive to Ashland, Oregon.
First time I have ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast and it was amazing!

But, the point of the entire trip was the Shakespeare Festival; founded in 1935, one of the oldest and largest professional non-profit theatres in the nation

Succeeded in seeing four plays in 48 hours!

The venues are outstanding,

and seeing plays outside under the stars is a fabulous experience.

Yipee, woke up at 5am for five hour drive back to Portland.

Had less than 12 hours to explore all the wonderful, weirdness in Portland.

Started at the Saturday Market...

This guy is juggling knives!

full of arts and crafts and street performers.

Had to go to the famous Voodoo doughnut store. 
After a 45 minute wait got all of three doughnuts!

Oreos and peanut butter on a glazed doughnut is delicious !! 

And back to the famous Deschutes Craft beer pub.

A quick battle with a beaver sculpture because being weird in Portland is the norm:)

Enough said !
And my 84 hours in Oregon ended.

Groundhog day.
Woke up and went back to Los Angeles and back to all the stores again.

This trip I had a few of my favorite students with me :)

July 8, 2014

Super hot day for a super fun all day field trip to the fabric district in Los Angeles with 18 students.

So much fabric, so much temptation but, I need more fabric like a hole in my head.
I stayed strong and purchased NOTHING!!

However, tomorrow is another trip.
