Train ride.

We left for Portland on Friday and were able to enjoy some well-lit scenery because of Solstice. One highlight of the ride included seeing the nice parks and new developments at the Tacoma Waterfront. We’re making it a point to take a drive down there for a day, as we’ve never been before. Although the ride included a few stops and operated at a moderate pace (nothing too exhilarating), it was great to get to Portland early, if not right on time. Unlike driving, train traffic is nearly non-existent, and we often forget how little time we get, but want, to just stare out a window and gaze.
