Day 3 found us taking an impromptu trip south towards Portland. We decided to take a detour down the Washington State side of the Columbia River Gouge. This drive wasn't new to Andy, as he lived near the Columbia River in Washington for a short while. Nevertheless, the views were spectacular. And we continued to have amazingly clear, sunny skies... as you can see.

Onto the Oregon side of The Gorge. The Columbia River Gorge is littered with waterfalls and other scenic stops for lazy tourist that don't want to hike very far.
|Here is one such stop: Horsetail Falls|
|LookieHere. Ain't they cute?|
|"Act NORMAL for once!"|
Next stop, Multnomah Falls.
On a whim, we called about getting a room at McMenamins-Edgefield. None of us other than Claire had heard of this place, but what a surprise it was. The property consisted of a series of buildings that houses rooms, bars, restaurants, a brewery, and a winery. We arrived around 3:00pm, had lunch, and then some drinks. And some drinks. And some drinks. Uggh.
Here are some pictures.

|Hey look! A red door. Whatever!|

On to Portland. Again, no plans. Who cares, we're on a roll. Last Day. Let's do this!
After an unsuccessful attempt to eat at a nice, brunch locale, we stumbled upon the Portland Saturday Market. Just what the doctor ordered.
|Big Girl Gotta Eat!|
We decided to relive our McPosey Wedding Weekend in Portland. First stop: Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade for some old-school arcade game playing.

|No one should eat this. Ever.|
|No more food for these two, please|
Oh shit. We're eating again. Last stop, we promise. Back in Olympia, WA for dinner on the water.
And that's all she wrote, folks. The airport and a red-eye to Atlanta await. We had a great trip and we hope you enjoyed the pics. See you around.
