History and Art – Overdue Visits

I have been wanting to do this walk for quit a while. I final got in to see the new third floor exhibits at the Oregon Historic Society Museum and got to the Portland Art Museum on there $5 after five on Friday. I was able to get the photos I want for the website and was able to check on all of the changes that have gone on. The third floor at the History Museum has the story of Oregon and is a permanent exhibit. They booth did a redo and update but also worked to give a more balance view of our past. The Art museum has been going through an extensive face lift with changing out items from their collecting and opening up new display area. They are doing more with temporary displays and showing more local work. I should now be able to complete my website pages on these two visitor’s spot.

Portland Art Museum

New Explorations

Finally my foot healed up enough to get back out for more exploring Portland. It is interesting that when you live in a place that you can walk by something for years and never take time to explore it. So it was for me with the Maritime Museum and the Grotto. Then there are places that you visited 20 years ago and you never go back some how thinking they never change. So it was with Oregon Historical Society Museum. Then there are those thinks you learned 28 years ago, when Portland crime rate was so high, you did not do because you would die, like take public transit. So I took the Streetcar in downtown. It was a bit confusing but I did not die. All of the new info I have on these places and experiences I have add to the this website.

Also, I had to stop in for doughnut and there are scooters everywhere.
