So far, we had flown to Portland (see post here), had ice cream and dinner, (see post here) spent the day in town and met with the Lewis persons for dinner down south in Bridgeport/Tigard. (see post here) An excellent start.
Now I find myself in the hotel in Bridgeport, while Wife heads south to Eugene on business for the day. That’s a 1.5 to 2 hour drive each way, but she is with three other people and is able to relax while someone else drives. I, however have more interesting things to do: I going on a tour of the Lake Oswego area neighborhoods, with a realtor.
Yes, it can now be told. We’re looking for a new home in the Portland/Lake Oswego area. It’s not hard wired, there are possibilities here in So Cal, but there is a lot to like about Oregon and that area specifically, and we can get more house for the money. So I’m going to spend the day viewing properties (doesn’t that sound all la-di-da?) while my wife slaves away. What a life.
The day was perfect: sunny, warm but not too hot, air crisp and clean, all as if they had dialed it up just for us. In all we went to three areas, looked at a dozen homes. I learned a lot about the area, saw the lake from all sides and was surprised at it’s size: much smaller than I expected. Really pretty, though.
Not surprisingly, saw some really nice places, also some I didn’t like much at all, but I got a great tour had a great lunch at a restaurant on the lake (name forgotten) and in all had a great day. After wife came home from her long business day, which went well, we went to Oswego Grill for a really nice dinner.
The next day we went together to look at a few repeats and a few new houses, did some shopping, had another nice meal and got ready to head back to Portland.
