We are book, music (Fred plays saxophone and jazz flute), wine, garden, and outdoor lovers. Fred has lived in this house for 23 years, so he has intimate knowledge of history and of this area if you want to pick his mind he won't mind sharing. I have lived in Portland for 26 years, mostly in outer Southeast Portland, so I am familiar with favorite hangouts and fun places. If you want a place to hike, hole up, or write, we can help. We have a plethora of new and old guidebooks along with bird books that are available.
