Having finished up my work for the day relatively early, today I made my way to the Oregon Zoo. It turns out that the zoo on a slightly drizzly weekday afternoon is an excellent traveling alone occupation. I took a camera, and just walked and took pictures. And it turns out that walking around the zoo alone is one of those things you can do alone and not feel strange. :)
Two hours at the zoo, followed by two hours at Powells (terrible picture below, but the place is amazing...and I even bought knitting books).
