On the 5th of August, we went to Portland Airport to pick up Sherry and Lorri. It is close to 100 miles, but it seems so much farther than that. There aren't too many freeways in this area only when you get to I-5. The roads going inland are windy, up and down and no passing except in designated passing lanes. On our way we got behind a long line of backed up traffic. When we got to the passing lane, this one car stayed in the left lane so everyone had to pass on the wrong side. It looked like a young girl driving and it made me wonder if she was a new driver. She had been going 40 MPH in a 55 MPH speed zone. So frustrating to all the drivers behind her.
We were early at the airport, so we waited in the baggage area for Sherry and Lorri. They ended up landing early and we were surprised to see them walking up to us. They stayed with us five days and we were on the dead go. Below are some of the fun things we did with them. Sherry and Lorri went on some real long beach walks while they were here. Lorri got up every morning and took a walk on the beach alone.
