Well, we have had a change in plans. There WAS a photo shoot scheduled to take place on Viking Star on Saturday, but complications with people and weather have cancelled it. And since I got to have a final visit with all the grandkids yesterday, when Al got the news of the cancellation, he said 'Let's GO!' (We have been planning an upriver trip for a long time--were supposed to have gone in April)
This morning was spent provisioning and running errands. And this afternoon, we hit the fuel dock. Just to make a few of you jealous, this is the first fuel we have taken on since Christmas Eve last year! Just took 100 gallons--pretty good for a whole summer of river travel!
Well, as Al was settling the bill, I noticed this fellow (?) coming down the river. We had heard there was a black swan hanging around the North Portland Harbor this spring, and I have seen pictures from three different friends, but this was MY turn. Isn't he pretty? And he made a few quiet honks, similar but different from a goose honk.
