Dave and Lisa are visiting from Iowa, on a tour of Pacific Northwest gardens. Nancy and I will be joining them in visiting the famous Butchart Gardens in Victoria British Columbia, and the gardens of Bainbridge Island just across Puget Sound from Seattle. But first, they’re going to spend a couple days letting us show them the sights in Portland :-).

Of course Nancy and I took them to one of our local farmer’s markets.

Then we headed downtown to see what was happening in Pioneer Courthouse Square. Today it was “Sand in the City”, a display of sand sculptures.

We did some wandering around downtown, visiting the Saturday Market and the riverfront park. When we got back to the square later in the day, the teardown and cleanup had already started. Talk about ephemeral art!
