The great adventure has begun!!
After much nervousness (you know them pre-flight jitters above) we embarked on our first flight to Portland, OR prolonging this fine year of 2012 for an extra 3 hours. These extra hours were spent among my brother and sister-in-law at the finest Portland eateries and drinkeries. A good time was had by all (below). Alex very much enjoyed his first, although brief, Portland experience. He even got to eat a Voodoo Donut of the Maple-Bacon variety.
Tomorrow we make for Kona, where the adventure continues!
