Well, we spent one night in Portland and never saw any evidence of unrest. It all depends on where to you stay.

That's good to hear, because I would like to get out to Oregon and Washington some time. I can't afford it this year, however.

With the exception of a small part of Portland and Eugene, Oregon is just fine.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Yes, not meaning to make it political, but Oregon did not strike me as the bastion of left-wing "progressivism" that most of us think it is. I had the impression that there is a divide there between the big cities and the small towns/rural areas, which is true of Tennessee, too. And, as is always the case with riots and protests, the unrest is really pretty limited in area.

My older son very much wanted to see a famous bookstore in Portland, supposedly the largest in the US. I was not eager to seek it out, but it was a moot point, because the store was closed for Covid.

While we were on the coast we bought some cheese from a creamery called Tillamook, which was much advertised out there. It was very good cheese. Anyway, since I have been home, our local Kroger has introduced Tillamook butter. I bought some because it was marked down as an introductory offer. Ordinarily I doubt I will be able to afford it.

Tillamook dairy products are an Oregon institution.
If you went to grade school here you went on a field trip to their creamery.

They aldo make some d*mn fine ice cream.

Yes, the majority of the state is red, Portland, Eugene and a few of the larger coastal towns are decidedly blue.

My son will probably return some day just to see the bookstore!

That's how it is in all the states that have large cities in them. At any rate, unless there's a creepy, abandoned place in a large city that would lend itself to an interesting photo op, I'm not interested. Large cities tend to tear down such places. At any rate, there are a lot of places in Detroit Mic I would like to get some photos of, and there are a few supposedly haunted places in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and a few other large cities, but the political climate and my bank account make going to those places out of the question for now. Even Chicago, right now, is no place to go unless you're armed.
