The St John's neighborhood of North Portland is somewhere I don't get to all that often. I used to take my Honda up there for service, Ms Nut used to live near-ish and I hear there's a McMenamin's Pub up there, but mostly I see it from the west side of the Willamette as I motor up Hwy 30 to Sauvie Island and pass the St John's Bridge. Boy, is that a picturesque bridge. Yesterday, my canoeing associate and I put in right underneath it and paddled south a ways. Afterwards, we rewarded ourselves with a cuppa and a cookie at the Ladybug Organic Coffeehouse on Lombard in the heart of the charming neighborhood. This isn't really a birding post....more of a photo post. Enjoy!
