Abot two weeks ago I decided it had been too long since we went to visit Portland, and a few days later my mom called to tell me about the Ramona Quimby statue at Grant Park. Then, by chance she stumbled across a newspaper article about a tour of the neighborhood that Beverly Cleary grew up in and wrote about. Mom wanted to know if I wanted to go, and I was all for it!
And so were many others! Apparently Ramona can still draw a crowd!
This is our Tour Guide Laura O. Foster
She was wonderful!
This little girl is a "Ramona" for sure
So is this one.
