Episode Seven - Portland, Oregon

In this episode I visit Portland, Oregon for a company conference. Join me as I tour the International Rose Test Garden; Portland's Classical Chinese Garden; Columbia River Gorge; Bonneville Dam, Fish Ladder and Fish Hatchery (where you'll meet Herman the Sturgeon); Multnomah Falls; Crown Point Vista House; and gigantic Powell's Bookstore. Watch for a cameo appearance by Michael Tyas from "Life's a Journey". (51.1Mb 10m45s)

"South China Sea" by Steve Doctor
"From the Disk" by Mike Norton
"Groove IT" by Denis Kitchen
"Vegas Hard Rock Shuffle" by Charlie Crowe

That was just great! I remember the outdoors amphitheatre at the Rose Garden, the bars intersecting into the street, Powells and all it's glory!

It's as though we trod the same path a year apart!

You've made me miss that city terribly. And I realize how much more of it I didn't see!

Wow, how did you take a video of your place taking off? That's crazy!

Great video, always well done. I'd love to see someone's take on our own city.

I've heard, and now soon, that Oregeon is beautiful. I should considered visiting there.

This motivates me to put together my Spain footage.

I obviously didn't re-read that before clicking "login and publish"!

Thanks for the comment, Rachael! I hope you do post more Spain video (I saw one you put up). I’m taking my Mom there later this year.

Yeah, I wish Blogger had spell check for comments, and the ability to edit your own comments after they’re published. All my mistakes are also immortalized forever on the internet.

I’m also embarrassed when I see a mistake in an episode after it’s produced and published. I misspelled “groove” twice when showing song titles in this episode. It’s just too much work to go back and fix!

I didn't know you had a video blog, Michael!

The editing was great and the shot glass thing is a great idea. They are great little cheap souvenirs! Lol

Nice video! That book store looked huge!
