We arrived safely Tuesday afternoon in HOT Portland. They are having record breaking heat here...which is a bummer...but not holding these Texans back at all. We spent Tuesday afternoon and evening in Portland...hiking and enjoying some delicious food. Yesterday we spent the day at the coast. Due to the extreme heat in Portland and the cool waters over the Pacific there was a lot of fog, but it was still a lovely 70 degrees and we found the fog to be very cool. Today we're headed to the Willamette Valley (actually we're in the valley) to go to some wineries. It will be HOT again. I'm in the business center using the internet. To get internet access in the room costs $14 per day so I won't be blogging much until I get some free internet. So far we've taken over 500 pictures!!! Off to get some breakfast and much needed coffee!
