I feel that when it gets over 35C I can't really function and the average summer temperature in Wellington is around 20C - spending too much time in 38C was kind of stupid as at least one of us could have ended up with heat stroke.
We decided to go out in the morning and then hide out from the sun for the rest of the day in our air bnb with our books, TV and colouring!
So what did we do on our final morning in Portland? We decided to check out the Alberta Arts District which wasn't too far from where we were staying. The lady that owned the Air bnb where we were staying had a clear file made up with all kinds of information about the surrounding area including the Alberta District and as you guys know I'm not a huge shopper, but there were some really fun shops I wanted to check out like Modern Domestic and Collage and Frock.
I even ended up buying some amazing constellation fabric a this pattern - both of which I'm sure will make it onto the blog at some point!
Here are a few of the photos we took whilst hanging out in the Alberta District - I really want to come back here sometime.
So where did we go next? We took a VERY long train journey with a stop over to visit a dear friend in Eugene, Oregon - and we went to Springfield!! Still many more USA posts to come!
