Day 3: Wine and Chocolate

Through the wonders of Facebook, I've been able to reconnect with all sorts of people from various times in my life. And during this trip I've been able to arrange some meatspace encounters with some of these reconnected online pals.

Two such pals are comfortably ensconced an hour south of Portland, in the charming town of Carlton. He runs a winery , and she has a chain of chocolate shops . In their charming tasting room, we sampled the best of both. Then a short drive through the verdant countryside brought us to see the amazing Spruce Goose (free of charge, as the museum was just about to close). Finally, we returned to Portland for a picnic in Washington Park's rose garden, to which we brought, naturally, wine and chocolate.

Today I think I'll go see the Columbia River Gorge. This is living!
