St John's has it's own bridge separating it from the rest of Portland. I went to a local bookshop, the farmer's market, a Mexican place with fabulous burritos and giant pinatas, several antique stores, a seriously quirky thrift store, a vegan lunch place where i had pumpkin soup and a diner straight out of a movie.
But you'll have to take my word for it because i didn't take any pictures of any of it.
As in, not one.
In fact, the whole five days i visited with Francie i took exactly 4 pictures,
all while we were at the park with Mari.

It would cross my mind that a particular sight might make a cool blog post, but then the feeling would pass.
I spent a lot of time reading and writing Etsy descriptions and watching YouTube and catching up with friends and napping. Definitely napping. Mari was having a bad bout of teething so sometimes we'd nap together.
Sure, the baby snores
and there is much teething drool,
but chest naps are great.It was a relaxing and wonderful visit.
