“All of us are enjoying exploring our wonderful new neighborhood. We love cycling, hiking, cross-country skiing and spending time on the Oregon coast and wine country. Good coffee and great food and the arts round out our interests. We should fit right in here in Portland. So happy to be in such a beautiful place,” said Stouffer.
