RANDOM 5 FRIDAY

I'm back to show you five random shots of my week.

We are still enjoying our time here in Oregon. 
We have been going on long walks in parks,
 Hanging out with Myles and Jess.
Went to the Zoo.
Going out to dinner
And getting lost in beautiful neighborhoods.

  


The Parks here in Portland are Beautiful.





Almost stepped on this guy while out on a walk. 
This slimy guy was at least 5" long.  At first I thought it was just
another leaf it was so big.  Pretty Crazy.





I have been enjoying every minute with these two.
I took this photo at a local coffee shop during story time.
You can just see how much they Love each other.





I had no idea who these two people are.  Do you?

We stumbled onto the set of Portlandia right here in Troutdale.
But got told real quick that I was not allowed to take photos.
I got one shot off before they caught us.





I grabbed a shot of this kitty while out on a walk.
He was keeping a close Eye on us. 





Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have an awesome weekend.

Hugs~

Nice pictures, Linda. Oregon is sooo pretty. You did wonderful with the pictures. I was going to say college students until you said they were actors. The cat sure is watching you. He probably is amazed at where all you've been that day.

Beautiful pictures! Your daughter and grandson are precious. Love the park. No idea what the show is or who they are. We have huge slugs like that out here in western NC. Pretty kitty :) Hope you enjoy the rest of your visit.

That park is stunning and I'm with the others - I would have guessed college students, never would have suspected actors. Fun visiting with you.

Beautiful kitty! What a sweet face! :)

And yes, those two people are Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. Portlandia is one of my favorite shows! (I live in Hillsboro.)

And yes, slugs grow huge here in Oregon. It's because of all the rain we get. Everything grows enormous. Lol
