Portland Again

Last week, WC came over on the noon ferry to go to Portland with me for the monthly medical adventure. We headed south.

Hanging around, taking pictures of the harbor, waiting for WC to arrive. November 7, 2012 (Click for larger image.)
The Coho appears. (Click for larger image.)

It was a beautiful day, but we did not linger to take photos of golden light on blue water along Hood Canal. We wanted to try to make Portland and find our motel before dark. Almost made it.

In the morning, lab stuff and the appointment with the doctor running my clinical trial. Hanging out by the windows on the seventh floor and looking out at Portland's south waterfront has become very familiar. The windows also overlook Ziddell Marine down on the Willamette River; they appear to have begun laying down another ship of some sort. Couldn't get a picture that showed anything, but will probably have months or years of watching the ship grow down there...

The aerial tram which runs between OHSU's two campuses sails right past the window. (Click for larger image.)

It was dark before we made it home. WC stayed over. Then I took him to the early morning ferry (frost on the car; HEAVY frost), and made up the guest room again. AO arrived in the evening.
