Today we visit Portland, the largest city in the region of south (at the moment) The city is a major port town, in fact thats how it was founded. Over the years it slowly grew out from the peninsula and into the surrounding farmland, Its down town is very dense as well as its north coast area. Most of its power comes from offshore wind turbines near the northern half of the city. It has a larger railway station and a large industrial base.
Today we will journey around the city to see sight, and stay for the night.
Here we are going through a industrial zone just after entering the city.
We continue on and see this nice park, which is called The Flags park.
A rougher area.
Here we begin to drive along the beach front.
We stop here to look at the beach.
Oh! but what's this it seams to be the turbines.
We should take a closer look.
And still going along the beach, here is the tri tower beach condo's.
The Portland bay lighthouse.
Okay turning back now, we head down Dunsmuir Ave, some other time we will head farther north.
Here we are again, but now we will go south.
Down south Dunsmuir Ave, by the old school.
Here is the port of Portland.
It is now time to turn down Main road which will lead us to Downtown.
We travel by condo's and office towers.
The road splits up here right at Summers square, named after the city founder and great explorer, it is a nice place to stop for a bit.
Ah this will be our hotel for our stay here.
At the end of the peninsula there is Portland city park.
Just a aerial view.
Walking around a bit we find this old historic building with a nice cafe in it.
The lovely waterfront is a nice place to spend the day.
More of City park.
Thats all for today, next time we visit the rest of town.
