2225.Day Six, Day Seven, Day Eight

Mar 9, 2015
Powell’s City of Books, first thing in the morning.  What a joy.  


A department store’s worth of books – new, used, English, Russian, picture books, antiquarian’s delights.  For those haven’t been,  imagine Vroman’s on steroids – in the best way.

Directory and maps needed and supplied.  
They are comfy enough with marketing to have a small section dedicated to Portlandia.  

They have an espresso machine, too.  Different focus than most.
Lunch in the Mississippi section of Portland at Por Qué No?
Semi-tearful goodbyes and then on to Weed, CA, Mt. Shasta, and the Hi-Lo Motel and RV Park.
Next night – Los Padres Inn, San Luis Obispo.

The mariachis down the street wished us well as went to 

Las Pilitas Nursery in Santa Margarita.

Home to sunny Southern California.
