Nothing like starting our morning with a sugar high at Portland's famous Voo Doo Doughnuts before driving to the more cultural part of our day, the wine country of Willamette Valley. At Voo Doo, we were visually greeted by pepto bismal colored interior and exterior walls – even the boxes were in this color.

... so good I would visit Portland again just for these doughnuts, oh **** no I can't I'm eating healthy (it's so easy to forgot). We went out for runs (3 miles each run) ate salads and healthy foods, walked everywhere and even visited all the tourist sites (basically just Chinese and Japanese gardens) but it was a nice few days and were feeling good! ...

She was fine to start off with, but got a little fractious when the main course arrived (although she thoroughly enjoyed Julie's mushroom soup starter) - the Executive Chef (and owner) was walking past and offered to take her for a while (on a tour of the kitchen :-) ) whilst we ate our meal - can you imagine that happening in a decent London restaurant!
Joleens' friend Rob Jackson owns The Sports Page Bar and Grill in Tigard, Oregon. He has a funky old purple cadillac limosine (The Bootymobile) which he rents out to people. Joleen took advantage of the offer and we toured wineries with a "designated driver" Mike). A great day of wine tasting and visiting.
