Our regular November routine has been simple: get out of Vancouver and head for the sun.
For the last couple of years, we've done Florida. This year, we have a few things on our plate and decided that a two week road trip to California was a great alternative.
We packed up the van, made about forty-five torturous-to-the-kids stops along the way to the border and then we had one errand left. Head south on the I-5.
First stop: Portland
It isn't sunny, but they do have Powell books and voodoo donuts. So, there's that.
We beelined to Powell's and each of us chose a book. I got "Song for Achilles", Molly got the second in the Benedict series, Finny got "The Candymakers", Lukey got the "Top 100 Hockey Players of All-Time" and Eric got Phil Jackson's autobiography.
Reading material in hand, it was time to head Voodoo.
We always do the $11.25 dozen that they pick for you. Never a bad thing.

We still haven't tried the signature voodoo man on the sign. Maybe someday.
There is something wickedly indulgent about killing a whole dozen donuts in one day. But hey, there are five of us and we are on holiday!
