Jack Sparrow Getting Arrested, a Quinceañera and More: Sights of Downtown Portland

A couple of weekends ago, my hubby and I spent the day in Downtown Portland. We enjoyed the colors of the CityFair, we strolled by the Saturday Market, and we rented bikes and rode them around the river and across the bridges. While doing all of this, we encountered some unique sights that made our day all the better.

Okay fine, they were just posing for us. It was the security guard’s idea.

Renting Bikes

I highly recommend doing this. We rented ours from Waterfront Bicycles with great prices and selections.

  1. Wow I have always wanted to check Portland out as it is only a few hours away from where I live (In British Columbia in Canada) You’re pictures reflect the exact old school vibe I expected to have! Great shots!


    1. Thanks! Portland is quite a unique place with unique people. BC is pretty amazing too though, I must say.
