The Grotto

Yesterday, Noam, mom, and I went to the Grotto for some time in nature. The Grotto is a Catholic shrine and botanical garden set on a cliff right in Portland, it was a stunning retreat right in the city limits.
It was so peaceful up on the upper level. We walked the path, walked the labyrinth, and marveled at the blooming plants. I cannot get over how lush and green it was and how calming and serene it was there. A beautiful place to spend some time!

Wow, what an amazing place! It looks so serene and calming. Oh the meditations and day-dreaming that could occur in a place like that! I have never been to Portland, but if I ever I get there, this is on my list to visit!

Gorgeous! Never been there! I am sad that I am not getting up that way this year, but I know we are going to have many adventures in Germany this upcoming year.
