Yesterday seemed like a quick day. We disembarked from the cruise on our own...someone asked if we were sure that we can handle our luggage...we've been carrying it for 15 days straight, so we are pros at this point. We got a taxi to the train station. Nice thing about King Street Station...they have a whole seating area for people that need assistance. This might not see like anything special, but within 5 minutes of us ...
... Finn Ferry taking about a dozen cars across the river at a time! Hmmm wrong turn maybe? After talking to some people in the waiting queue we find we probably could go that way but it was getting on a bit and we probably were not going to get to the museum in time to enjoy it. Decisions was made to head to Michaels and do the museum tomorrow. Of course as with the rest of our holiday we hit Portland dead on 5pm and afternoon rush hour so was a bit of a slow nerve ...
... not nearly as nice or as roomy as the Lufthansa plane. They also didn't offer complimentary wine, personal movie screens and their food wasn't nearly as good. It was a long flight to San Francisco but I sat next to some nice ladies who had been to Ethiopia to visit their sick mother. They had actually come to America as refugees several years ago and it ...
... Voodoo Doughnuts and got a dozen of their specialities to try out after lining up for 20 minutes. Talk about sugar overload!! Definitely overrated, I certainly wouldn't bother gong back. We dropped the day's purchases off at the apartment and then headed across the bridge to the east side of the city, apparently that's where the action's at. We really struggled to find it though, I think we were totally in the wrong area. We came across some weirdo who insisted on reading us ...
... a bit of a hiatus because I won't have computer access for a bit, but hang in there! I promise I'll be back with more stories and pics. My editor, Mr. J.A. Roddenberry, esq reminded me of a few adventures in Yosemite I forgot to mention, so there will be an addendum coming, too.
See ya soon!
