While I don’t have much to report from this layover time, I can now say that my dad is now happily married. We attended his wedding on Saturday July 21, 2007 and everything went off without a hitch. It was a small ceremony and the newlyweds seem to be incredibly happy. I have to admit, with the situation as it is, I couldn’t be happier for them.
I left you last in Vallejo, CA. We woke up on Tuesday morning and headed over to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, which was just a couple of miles from our hotel. Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is unique in that it is as much an animal park as a theme park. The closest comparison would probably be Sea World.
We woke up on Sunday with an urge to get over to the coast. The drive from Portland over the mountains to the Pacific Ocean is a little over an hour and we got to it quickly. Upon seeing the ocean, we decided to stop for lunch in order to fuel up for the rest of the day. This route is not the quickest by any means, but who drives down the coast to make time?
