Lan Su Chinese Gardens

Lan Su Chinese Gardens is one of my all time favorite
gardens in Portland to visit, stroll, take photos, and
have a cup of tea.
I can highly recommend having a membership if you love
these gardens and like a place to stop for some quiet moments.
You can find them at:  239 N.W. Everett St., Portland, OR
Regular admission is $9.50 for adults
They are open from 10AM-6PM, but have special events
from time to time in the evenings.  Music in the gardens is the best.

Note:  They will be closed November 23rd to mid-January for
rehabilitation of the lake.

Petite Provence

Yummy chai and coffee.
On a nice day seating outside is delightful.
Definitely have a croissant, delicious!

Petite Provence is located in several places around the Portland area.
My husband swears there breakfast is the best.
Sometimes there is a wait to get in, but quite worth it.
Plus they have wonderful breads and pastries to take away.
Check out their website for locations and enjoy!

Bamboo Sushi

Bamboo Sushi has been located at 310 S.E. 28th for quite a long time.
More recently they have added locations at 836 N.W. 23rd and
1409 N.E. Alberta St.
Personally I don't visit here often enough.
The fish is the freshest fish around and prepared so beautifully.
The photos are from the Alberta Street location, which has sidewalk seating
during the warm months.
I can highly recommend Bamboo Sushi, as the perfect place to visit for
sushi and sashimi.

Oregon State Fair

The Oregon State Fair in a fun event not to be missed.
Beside food, rides, and music, there are all the competitions
you expect at a fair.
The last day is Sept. 7th, so head to Salem and enjoy.
Market Street exit off I-5 works for me, then go west until
you see signs for the fair.
