On the Road Again

Quickie note. The hotel had a computer. Wedding rehearsal and dinner was fun and chaotic. karaoke glee, pizza and beer, kids everywhere. Wedding sweet, simple, casual and informal. As uncluttered as the personalities of the bride and groom. The Grotto, in Portland, is a true destination place. If you haven't been to Portland the two things you must see are The Grotto and Powell's City of Books. Powell's alone is reason enough to go to Portland. Got back to our room last night and found a message from Quanah. They are staying at Discovery Coast just over the river in Washington from Astoria. I called back and they want to get together with us today!!! Wow, we get to see the kids on their honeymoon. How fabulous is that? What a surprise.

Well, we are off to pack and get on with the trip. Lots of art galleries, beaches and lighthouses await. Stay tuned for PICTURES!!!!!

Back in the seminary days we used to sneak off the hill and go to the Grotto. You could actually go inside at all hours. I am so happy to see that one of your favorite places is also one of mine, Annie. And Powell's Book----my gosh. You are SO dialed in, Girlfren'!!!

It was wonderful to hear your voice on the phone. I hope you will get this prior to our meeting tonight.

I am so excited!

xoXO,
