sunday strolling in goose hollow.

Yesterday was just made for strolling. A bit warm, but not too warm. Flowers and plants exploded in color, birds chirping in every tree...

Portland has some incredible neighborhoods that are wonderful to stroll through, and one of our favorites is called Goose Hollow.

Like everything around Portland, it's easy to get to either by car or better yet take the MAX light rail train, get off at Goose Hollow, and head north.  You'll soon be in this wonderfully shaded, old neighborhood.

Goose Hollow is chock full of picturesque homes perched high on hills, with forest views and commanding views of the city. Not to mention character galore.

Like this purple house I showed you earlier. Can you believe?

It has a mass of wisteria next to it that we could smell from a block away.

Even the side view of the house is gorgeous, check those corbels and the little spires!

There are century-old rock walls with moss and vines hugging them, and gates leading up to the houses:

If you need a little breather or just want to sit and soak it all in, there are stone benches flanking the viaduct bridge:

Around every corner there's another gem of a home, like this brick red one tucked high in the trees, with an amazing forest view out the back:

or this beauty with its wonderful balustrade, not to mention that amazing tree out front!

As our mild Spring days get longer and longer, I imagine we'll be taking more of these neighborhood strolls. If I'm smart, I'll make sure my phone is well-charged!

Have an incredible week, friends!
