Reed College

Gary and I enjoy taking drives and exploring this neck of the woods. There is a lot to see in the greater Portland Oregon area. I remember seeing this beautiful college campus several years ago, so I asked Gary if we could find it again on a grey Sunday afternoon.  This is Reed College, a highly respected Liberal Arts college in the East Moreland area of Portland.

The campus is so charming. I love the Tudor - Gothic style of the buildings. Even in the winter, the lawns are lush and green. We took a walk around with Molly in tow.

Then we started exploring the neighborhoods close to the school. I love charming old homes with historical interest. Here are just a few of the beautiful houses we saw:

Well, I must get back to my cleaning and sewing this morning. Today begins a new week and there is much to do! Please visit again...I so appreciate you stopping by! -Derrith
