    Took the hugs and kisses out to lunch today to a little country town over the mountains. Portland is an old mining town which in the past thrived on a large cement factory which operated for about a century and closed a few decades ago. The town is well preserved and was used as a project for a group of sign writers back in 2001 who recreated a whole load of vintage signs around the town. More have since been added. Makes for a nice place to walk around and there are a number of pubs that put on a good feed/beer.

    Yes there had been a small dumb on the mountains overnight which left things a little brisk. Just made the open fire in the Coronation Hotel that much more inviting, :drinks:
