I was looking forward to our touring of downtown Portland, but things didn't pan out as planned. I think we were all a bit tired; at least I was and I didn't feel very well. We arrived at Pioneer Courthouse Square to major construction and noise.
I was happy to visit the Square again and look specifically for things I missed when we hurried through here on a previous trip.
I love the top picture, because when I was posing with the 'Allow Me' statue I didn't realize that Mom was sitting behind me getting such a kick out of my antics. Notice he's wearing one of my scarves - Candeman's doing.
The second picture is of one of the famous Benson Bubbler drinking fountains.
The third picture is of the left side of the fountain. Portland is known for its fountains - it has many.
Picture number four shows the ample seating area/stairs, currently occupied by a class outing.
The fifth picture is the fingerpost sign. Very cool.
The last picture is of the chess board artwork.
