The morning was far more eventful than I generally like on departure day but never mind. Something got added to my to do list for when I'm next up. Nice chat with Bobbie then headed out to the airport. Easy trip back. When everything runs smoothly the trips door-to-door are pretty efficient and fast.
Two men on the MAX, one from Michigan, the other from Missouri, they'd both been in town visiting their mothers. It's nice how people just chit chat in Portland, I miss that, just a slower pace and the time and inclination for random pleasant conversations.
Nice view of the Willamette through the clouds with St Johns Bridge and the Burlington Northern Railroad Bridge 5.1, the edge of Sauvie Island, too. There were beautiful views of the Cascade peaks all the way down to California.
