As usual for this trip, it is overcast and supposed to rain. The girls and I are headed for Portland, but we are going to make a stop in Astoria, OR. Originally, we were going to go around The Olympic Peninsula, but it would have been an 8 hour drive plus 3 hours to get to Portland, OR. Too long! This idea is shorter.
I know today is Memorial Day, but it is kind of strange to celebrate a holiday, when you are on vacation. We will see what kind of memorials we can find today. I know Portland is having their Rose Festival and Seattle is having a music festival.
Got into Portland, OR about 6. Got our room and got the car unloaded. Mari and I walked over to get dinner. Came back, ate dinner and watched TV. Hanging out as usual in the room. Rory called and he was frozen. He had gotten wet on the boat, as he went out on a lunch cruise and Vancouver is having rain. It was nice while he was on the cruise, as he could only call me periodically, today I have talked to him twice. I am sorry he got cold and wet.
Going to head for bed in a little bit, as Mari and I have to be up early, as we are taking an all day tour out to Mt. Hood and waterfalls.
Good Night! Trudi
