Sunday Bikes and Movies

More than 31,000 bikers, peddlers skippers and walkers showed up for Portland Sunday Parkways last weekend. 8miles of city streets were blocked off to cars in North Portland linking up Peninsula, Arbor Lodge, Kenton, and McCoy Parks. It was warm and sunny off and on. We envied the kids wading in the fountain surrounded by roses of every color and fragrance. Later in the afternoon a large outdoor movie screen was the backdrop for a friendly three piece musical group with North Portland roots. Finally it was dusk; the fountain behind the gazebo subsided and the movie started. It was a perfect summer day.
