"I love Oregon!" ~Celeste

(Note: I wrote this post on 9/29 but Blogger was being a pain so I just uploaded it today. Sorry! ~D.)

Hi everyone! Swatchy Prep here. My good friend Swatchy Hugs and I met up in Portland, OR this week to visit our friends Korin and Ruby. Celeste used to live here, but it's Devon's and my first time! We LOOOOOVE Portland! It's such a cool hippy city. Devon likes that she can wear cargo pants and fleece and fit right in (preppy purse notwithstanding - you can take the girl out of Jersey...)
Yesterday we went to Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. Hugs did a hike to the bridge, but I hadn't brought my hiking boots so I stayed in the car. They told me it was gorgeous though!

Haha - get it? GORGEous? Hahahaha...

Devon, I told you to stay in the other room! Anyway, the falls were SO BIG! It was definitely unlike anything we've seen on the East Coast.

Later, we headed over to Powell's, the largest independently owned bookstore in... the world... or something cool like that.

in Rehoboth? Hahahaha! Devon, no one else will think that's funny. You had to be there.

They have bike racks outside (It's SO Oregon!) with the names of all different books on them.

Today we drove out to the coast (after a coffee stop, of course -- OR coffee will make a coffee drinker out of anyone), and visited the AMAZING Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park. I can't even describe how beautiful it is, I'll let the pictures do the talking. And then we grabbed a local brew at a cute little pub -- coffee isn't the only thing Oregon does well!
Devon and I departed for San Francisco and Celeste and Hugs headed to Vegas, baby! We'll miss them!! (stay tuned for updates... including one from Prep that just may knock your handknit socks off)

Dear Swatchy Prep,

I am so seriously in love with Oregon. I've been there twice, and both times were perfection. I love the picture of you and Hugz on the beach and in the tree!

Keep that Devon in line!

Love, Knittah
