Portland Marathon

Runners crossing the St Johns BridgeCresting the venerable and beautiful St. Johns Bridge, with sweeping views of the Willamette River and our cozy village, has been long been a highlight for runners braving the historic Portland Marathon. The marathon’s course through St. Johns, bringing runners streaming past our homes, is just as much a highlight for neighbors.

 

Chickens

Yep. We’ve got a lot of ’em in our back yards and sometimes in our front yards and sidewalks. They’re cute. They pop out rich and delicious eggs (sometimes so much that your neighbor might share some if they’re lucky and you’re nice). And maybe don’t tell any little kids this… but when they’re not too wiry, chickens also taste good.
