Photo of the Day: Finger Tips

finger tips

Did you know that one Beverly Cleary is from Portland? Everyone here does. She set all the Ramonabooks right here in Portland. And what little girl didn't grow up with the Ramona books? I loved Ramona.

Recently, Lynnette and I saw the new Ramona movie (It was cute. I found it odd that a film set over a period of a year in Portland had zero rainy or grey days, but whatever.) and we decided we wanted to go find the famous Klickitat street where Ramona lived and then we heard that Grant Park had statues of the Ramona characters. So this weekend, we went in search.

Unfortunately, there were only three statues and they were a little lame. But, it had rained heavily that morning and I was able to get some great shots out of it. Definitely worth it.

AAHH jealous! I read all of the Ramona books at least ten times growing up! Glad to hear the movie was cute, I was scared to watch it!

I LOVED the Ramona books, and I plan to see the movie when it comes out on dvd. We've started calling Aja Ramona on occasion because she is quite the pest sometimes.

Awesome photo :)

Ooh, do I remember the Ramona books! I didn't know the Portland connection, though.

I didn't either until I moved here. I remembered Klickitat street, but not Portland. :)
