Because of the weather, my wife and I nixed plans to go to Astoria, and instead spent most of the day just hangin around Portland. The highlight was walking through the Hesse exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. Okay... it's not the Louvre or d'Orsay, but hey, this ain't Paris either. It was a great way to spend a couple hours on a rainy Saturday November afternoon.
With thanks to Scarlett for her recommendation, we finished the day with dinner at Fenouil. After a glass or two of wine, I'm pretty easily swayed, so I'll let my wife have the last word; "Is there any reason to go to Hurley's again?"
