Getting to know Portland

This was a quick and easy way to see what was a “must see sight” with a this brief narrated tour. The guide did a fair blend of historical facts, personal experience and some bald face lies. He is a Yankees fan, a musician and a long time resident of Portland so we forgave most of what he said and felt that it was worth the price of admission.

A great time
