After that, we walked around the adjacent International Rose Test Garden, which was also a nice relaxing thing to do. We would have rode the train that connects these parks to the Portland Zoo, but the train is not running at this time of year.
We had dinner at Chang's Mongolian BBQ -- another thing I miss from the Columbia River Hotel having closed -- and did some shopping before heading home. We were in no hurry, and stopped to play pinball along the way, where we found a couple of new-to-me games: World Poker Tour and Pirates of the Caribbean. We found the latter more entertaining than the former.
This afternoon, Lisa sent me off to check the e-mail while she investigated a gate on her father's property that appears to have been knocked over. Looks like I'll be put to work sometime during the next few days driving a post to re-mount that gate.
I was supposed to bring my camera with me on this trip, as there are things Lisa wanted photographed up here, but despite having set it in a box with other things to be carried up here, I seem to have left it behind. I must have set it aside when I was actually packing the bags and then forgot it, because all of the other things that were in the "box to bring" made the trip.
