Caffeine with Christine (10/18)

Greetings from Vancouver! It is so nice to be reunited with my best friend Heather and her husband Chris. We arrived Thursday night and have been having the best time. It has been in the sixties and seventies during the day and then gets down to the forties and fifties during the night. So far, it's only rained once (today) just for a little bit. So we've had some amazing weather. 

The food and drinks here are outrageous. We are staying in Vancouver, Washington which is about ten miles from Portland, Oregon so we have been going back and forth every day. Heather and Chris live right on the Columbia River which also has a gorgeous view of Mount Hood. I've had probably too many doughnuts and enough coffee to keep me awake for a century, but it's okay. That's what vacations are for, right?! 

We had a smooth flight, and arrived at PDX airport around 9pm. We were starving and didn't have time to eat dinner so we immediately stopped at a Five Guys to eat something! Friday we spent the entire day hiking up to Multanomah Falls which was so beautiful. Later, we met up with Justin's friend Ryan in Clackamas, did a little shopping and then got dinner, drinks, and played a few games at Dave and Busters! Yesterday went spent the majority of the day in Portland after getting Voodoo Doughnuts. We got to see the famous Powells Bookstore, eat some bomb pizza, and visited a pretty cool gaming store. We are headed to the beach right now. There are a few gorgeous beaches on the Oregon Coast which are only a couple hours away. 

I'm sad to say that we leave tomorrow night. I definitely don't want to come home, it has been too nice here. I will be posting a ton of photos of our trip on Tuesday when we get home. Have a lovely Sunday!
