Portland Japanese Garden

One of our natural stops in Portland was the Japanese Garden. The chibibis and Muk muk were very happy to be out in nature again!

Chibibis and lion

The entrace to the Japanese garden starts with a lion. Clearly, some chibibiposing had to be done.

Constructive repetition

A nice texture pattern that had to be turned into a photograph

Cranes

They remind me of some of the metal work at the butterfly garden on Vancouver Island, BC.

Well well well

seriously, how many jokes are there involving the word "well"? Probably just this one.

Welling up (close)

The bamboo cover is a nice touch.

A mossy tree

Love mossy trees. There's all kinds of associations they evoke.

Moss and pond

And if you look closely, a koi carp as well. Just a nicely tranquil scene

A chibibi-sized stream!

The chibibibis finally find a river that's just the right size for them!

Chibibifox fishing

Chibibifox spent some time fishing at the chibibi-sized stream. Unfortunately for him, there were no fish to catch. He was a bit growly afterwards.

Photobombed!

There you are taking a down-slope picture of the Japanese garden when all of a sudden, chibibibis O_O

The visitor center

It houses the gift shop, and so we bought some trinkets and gifts, because it seemed a sensible thing to do at the time.

Treeshroom?

It looks like a bird simply deposited this mushroom on a pine tree. Whether that's what happened or not, or looked unusual enough to take a picture of.

Chibibizen

As we were about to leave it was starting to rain, so there was one final photo of the chibibis posing in front of the visitor center garden, and that was the end of the Japanese garden trip.
