Historic Willamette Neighborhood..a great place to live, visit, shop and eat.

 If you've never visited the Historic Willamette Neighborhood, you're missing out on something special. When I first moved to this neighborhood over a year ago, it was not only because I fell in love with my home, but also love being able to take a walk..or very short drive to shop and dine here.

Located in West Linn, Oregon, the Historic Willamette neighborhood has that small town charm with its nice shops, restaurants and businesses. During the year, you can watch parades, dance your heart away in the streets during the street dance, or stroll the farmers market where you can pick up some fresh locally grown produce as well as some arts and craft work from local artists.With lots of great restaurants, I know I've enjoyed food from BJ Willy's many a night! Historic Willamette A Main Street Community's promotional meeting. See....getting out there and taking pictures and videos of your community is a good thing!

I was given a nicely put together booklet on the walking tour to check out all those historical homes and buildings, purchased a nice hot cup of coffee and banana cake made locally (she was right..to die for), and went on home to get to work on this video. There are so many things I can't fit into this blog about the business and restaurants..as well as the nearby Willamette Park that is right where the Willamette and Tualatin Rivers meet....but you can look for these in future blogs!

Hope you enjoy my video on the Historic Willamette Neighborhood. Life is good here!

Hi Charles, It do like the small town feel of it, but yet 20 minutes to the City. You're shop would fit right in...hmmm, now that I think on it, that might be a dangerous thing!

Hi Charles, I've lived in many places across the country, and love parts of each place, but there is something about this town that I love.

Hi Cindy,

You've done a wonderful presentation and I loved your video.  It really shows the charm of Historic Williamette Neighborhood.  Who wouldn't want to live there?!  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Joyce, Thanks so much. There are are few other places I'd love to have shared in this video, but was trying to keep it around 2 minutes..as was I went longer. The good thing is that I've gotten my feet wet and at least know how to edit a video (still LOTS to learn here though). I now can highlight them in other videos.

Hi Mel..thanks for that. It was my first time using Windows live Movie Maker to edit video (read that was a good program in another blog) It took me a while to figure some things out..and I did lose a few hours of work by not saving it right. Still lots to learn on that program..thinking just lots more ways to add features. I can easily see one like this in your neck of the woods.

Boy Cindy - you're really getting good with that camera of yours. Nice looking town - but where are all the people? You've must have gotten an early start.

Hi Jill, the program I used made the video look much better! I took these in the late afternoon, and on a cold day, so really wasn't lots of people around. Once the nice weather hits as well as weekends, you find lots of people sitting outside eating, and shopping.
