Family Reunions and Portland Adventures for the 14th week of the year!

Pop, Sandra, Rosemary, Brian, Taryn and Jesse at Deschutes Brewery and Pub

My cousin Taryn and her new husband, Jesse came out from Kentucky to visit Oregon (Portland) and to drive down the Oregon/California Coast to San Francisco.  I've not seen Taryn in 14 years.

Friday, we toured Portland including taking Jesse to two of Portland's best breweries.....Deschutes and Bridgetown.

Saturday, we headed out the Columbia River Gorge for Multnomah Falls.  It was a beautiful Saturday and Taryn and Jesse enjoyed the scenery.

We ended up in Hood River, OR and had lunch at Full Sail Brewing.  Everyone enjoyed the libations and burgers, pork loin sandwiches and salmon fish and chips.

Honeymoon in Oregon

It was a great weekend!  What a treat to re-connect with family and share our "backyard" with them.
