Portland, OR 2020





Portland has been known as the Rose City, since 1888. They have thousands of rose bushes lining 20 miles of streets. 






We visited Washington Park,  a popular Portland tourist destination, with more than 9,500 rose bushes representing over 600 varieties. I was disabused of the notion that there were just red roses and a few yellow ones.




 
We called on Robyn Luchs and husband Perry Kenin, Crystal Cruise buddies, and absolutely loved their beautiful Portland woodsy home.


 
Robyn prepared a lavish five course feast that was worthy of a gourmet restaurant meal.
 

 
I have known for years that Perry dabbled in pottery and glass art. I had no idea how accomplished he is, nor what a major studio he has. 


 
The big kiln could only fit outside. He built it himself since there was no way to bring one in.


 
His pièce de résistance is a huge beautiful piece of glass art that hangs over their fireplace.
Thanks for hosting us.
