This is our first official spring in the city, and I’m happy to report that it’s completely awesome.
If we’re being honest, it has felt like spring since January here in Portland, but now it officially looks like it. While we haven’t exactly been suffering from bitter cold these past few months, it still felt completely marvelous to take a stroll in the sunshine this week. And go for a run in a tank top for the first time since the fall. And sweat while on a bike ride. And see that somehow, everyone in Portland is able to lounge around in the sunshine during a workday.
It’s been lovely to see the fishing boats floating in the Willamette River on weekend mornings. And to see the crew teams out on the water, rowing their way up the river. Plus, it smells awesome out there. Flowers are blooming everywhere, and my nose is so happy. Spring in Portland is truly a delight for all the senses.
Here’s to lots of time in the great outdoors this season!
