Weekends in Portland + nice weather = FESTIVALS! The Rose Festival is here and that's the biggie, but on our way there we detoured to check out the Dragon Moon Festival:
Not much going on there. Shame. We thought that was going to be cool.
Ah well, take me to the river mama!
The Saturday Market was also happening, but they are foolish and do not allow dogs. No matter, I didn't want to go there anyway...
Fleet Week is when the navy and coast guard ships come to Portland. They really do look like big Tonka toys.
Mama had to be restrained from making "sea-men-in-portland" jokes. Out loud. Sometimes she's just embarrassing.
I must say that the boats are awfully cool. I could see myself at the helm of one of these babies, or on the top, with a long scarf and my doggles just looking cool...
Not one but TWO giant St. Bernard's. They look small in this photo but do not be fooled - there is a reason you can barely see their owner in between them.
