I've been away

I've had no time to do any clay lately - I've been visiting the West Coast of the USA - Portland, Oregon and Seattle. Here are some of my favourite pics of Portland:

Japanese Garden
Chinese Classical garden
 Best "fast food" I have ever tasted!
 Smallest park in the world. 
 Blissful baking http://sweetpeabaking.com/ The cupcakes are gluten free
 Ah, the satisfaction of vegan doughnuts from VooDoo Doughnuts! http://www.voodoodoughnut.com/
 Oh the Wells Fargo wagon...
