We didn't really need to leave early as we were only going 5 hours to Portland Oregon but we were awake early and so we got up and went..... with the truck packed with the boats on the roof. Lindsay reminded me that people would not be staring at me but at the boats ( I sometimes forget and get a bit offended at all the strange looks we get when the boats are on the roof).
It was a surprisingly gorgeous morning and Mount Baker was clear on the horizon.
David tried on the Davy Crockett hat - I did NOT buy it!

And now we are happily in our hotel in Portland, bumped into Richmond friends within minutes (they came by train:) and are off to have a glass of wine at the Managers Reception before wandering the neighbourhood for dinner!
GREAT Day 1 of Spring Break 2011.
