Well, we will miss their first year anniversary that happens on Sunday, but join us on a visit to the World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon. We will then motor to overnight in Forest Grove (McMenamins Grand Lodge). On the way home on Sunday, we will stop at the Portland Japanese Garden.

We're leaving at 9:00 from 902 Union Ave South, the location we normally leave from at Plum Street and Union Avenue behind the Chevron station.

The event title is now known as World of Speed Museum and McMenamins Passport Search.

Denise and Jan 'suggested' that we stop at a couple of McMenamins establishments on the way down to the museum so they could get their McMenamins Passport stamped. Sure. Not too much out of our way. After three stops for stamps (and lunch), we toured a fantastic museum that displays cars, motorcycles, hydroplanes, and memorabilia, providing a history of those in the search for speed. You really need to stop there the next time you're motoring close to Wilsonville.

We didn't leave McMenamins Grand Lodge (a very interesting hotel) in Forest Grove until 11:00 so Denise and Jan could get their 'Ruby Spa' stamp, we decided to wind our way back home, stopping at other locations instead of visiting the Japanese Garden. Gives us an excuse to head back down to Portland at another time. Great weekend!!!
