Wandering around Lake O. Saturday, March 29, 2008

I drove down to Lake Oswego this afternoon just to wander around—no particular reason, it was just somewhere pretty close that I don't really know at all.

[right, and below right] Downtown Lake Oswego includes Lake View Village, an upscale shopping complex at the creatively-named intersection of First Street and A Avenue.

The city of about 36,000 is just eight miles south of downtown Portland. It includes Oswego Lake, a 405-acre lake that is privately owned and managed. That's right—lots of fancy homes that sit right on the lake shore, so unless you live there, you can hardly even see it.

[below] Homes on North Shore Blvd. which, ironically, is on the south shore of the lake (but north of South Shore Blvd.).
