Once again we crossed Portland to the Hollywood district in search of geocaches. It was cool and cloudy this morning and it stayed that way most of the day. Great caching weather.
We saw some very interesting things on our adventures today. You would call the Hollywood area a hippie area or just different. One of the more unusual things we saw was a sign post covered from the ground up to the sign with a crocheted "sweater" complete with a crocheted flower attached about a foot from the ground.
About half a block away was a telephone pole with a big hand crocheted doily attached to the pole. Scraps of fabric were tacked here and there.
Portland Pods are becoming a tourist attraction. A pod is made up of several food carts, and is usually in a parking lot. Some are made up of just a few carts while other ones might take up a city block with many carts. We found a cache at one of the pods. It had five food carts plus tables and an awning covering some of them. The area was quite busy.
We ate lunch at Wendy's before finding one more cache, bringing our total for the day to 13. Considering the fact that we had several DNFs today, it wasn't too bad a day for finds.
It took us a long time to travel back toward Sherwood. We stopped at A&W for root beer floats before going on home.
