Sunday in Portland

Portland, Oregon; Sunday 22 October:

We left Portland on Sunday morning. But not before getting some doughnuts from the famous Portland bakery, VooDoo doughnuts.

Yes, there are “Disney barriers” for the lines!

Himself wanted to try the bacon maple one. I chose a bismark like filled one. And we both wanted one of the original Voodoo doughnut. Usually the pretzel stake is through the heart but today it was through the head!


I drove over as soon as I work up at 7:30 am (both Portland locations are open 24 hours). Surprisingly, there was no line!

I did my Inktober #22 sketch of their mobile units.

Once that errand was done, I went to the hotel lobby to finish a sketch I’d worked on each morning while Himself slept.

Of course, the rain stopped on the day we were to leave.  The drive home was uneventful.

    Those donuts look absolutely sinful! You did a lot of great sketching in Portland!

  2. Love your sketches! I have to say, I’ve lived in the Portland area all my life and have yet to visit VooDoo donuts. And I love donuts. I think I just don’t like standing in line. I’ll have to try your tactic and go early.
