Cross Country Adventure: Portland Oregon on the 4th of July

Day 12

Up at 7:30am prepping for a busy day. A little after 8am Gregory, Matthew, Ahni and I head to Kell’s to eat breakfast and watch Germany beat France. At 11am we head to our next item on the itinerary.

The Thorns versus the Red Stars with over 13K in attendance. Out of five women, a mohawked and a pink-dyed hair cheerleader lead the spirit chants through the women’s soccer match. A drum is beaten. Pink smoke and flags wave when the Thorns score their two goals. Cotton candy, soda, ice cream and cheese nachos are enjoyed.

We pop into a grocery store to pick up beer for our next destination. Gregory liked the varied selection.

This telephone pole near the grocery store is clearly a popular advertising spot.

We head to Cathy and Andrew’s, friends of Matthew, and have luckily only missed a few minutes of the first half of Brazil versus Columbia. We eat, we drink, we make merry until early evening.

Back at Matthew’s we sit outside for a while, spent from the busy day. We eat and drink a little and relax. Little Ahni is fired up to see fireworks.



Happy 4th of July!
