I have a December birthday which scan get pushed aside because of holiday celebrations. So I try to do something special for myself and this week I visited the Pittock Mansion in Portland.
The Pittock Mansion was built in the early part of the 20th century for the publisher of the Oregonian newspaper. Henry Pittock was in his late 70’s when he finally was able to move into the mansion. The mansion now belongs to the City and much money is needed for repairs due to water damage. If you are in the area I suggest you visit and help preserve this jewel.
The views above Portland are wonderful…..especially on a clear day. This week it was fog, rain and snow flurries that greeted us.
If you haven’t been, let me tell you that this year they outdid themselves with the decorations. It’s gorgeous. This is just a small sampling of the 22 rooms. I don’t want to show you everything because you really need to see it for yourself.
