Spent the day driving through the Columbia River Gorge. Heard it was beautiful.
IF ONLY IT WASN’T POURING THE WHOLE TIME!
In Portland now. Staying at the Hotel Modera. Booked the hotel while we sat in the parking lot of a Starbucks. Good Rate, nice hotel, great bed, and no pets allowed. It also happens to have a great restaurant. Once we checked in to the hotel we really didn’t want to go walking around in the rain. Ate at Nel Centro in lobby of hotel. I had the best lamb, and Drew had the best chicken — tender, flavorful, happy — well, someone was happy, maybe not the meat on our plate. We shared the best beet salad.
Forecast this week: Rain — sun comes out on Friday. Friday? That rings a bell. Oh, right, that’s the day we leave!
