Built in 1949, it comprises several blocks of connected shops -- quite a few antique malls, a wonderful book/comic/gaming store, restaurants, gift shops, thrift stores, a barber, etc., plus the Spudnut Shop where they've been making donuts out of potato flour for a long, long time.
New this year are a series of murals painted in retro 1950s style. Truman and I had fun checking them out:
The book store also has a cool mural all its own:
Always a treat to stroll around Uptown.
Truman and I also enjoy going to Leslie Groves Park, which stretches for several miles along the Columbia River.
For Truman, water = wading!
We had a lovely walk and a relaxing rest there.
I've been busy here painting a mural on my mother's garage wall. More about that project coming later in the week.
