Evening in Portland
August 16, 2014

Portland surprised us: not only tourist restaurants
with more heaping helpings of fried seafood, but a
lively downtown district with foodie restaurants, too.
We wandered away from Cy's on the wharf, into the
hipster district and looked at several menus. But in the
end, we couldn't get out of our heads the Italian street
fair we had seen on our drive in. So we walked a few
more blocks and joined the fun: Frank Sinatra music,
hearty pasta, gelato, happy crowds of Catholic kids,
and Ellie's first chance to gamble-- all in the name
of charity for St. Peter's church.
