After our trip to Fort Stevens and our nice lunch, we arrived "home" and decided to take a trip on the trolley. This was a big treat! In the past years, the trolley wasn't running since it was winter. We were surprised and happy to see that it just started running for the year on the weekend we were there!!! The trolley runs along the riverfront (Columbia River) and was only $1 per rider. Our stop was just feet from the hotel, right under the bridge. Sedric especially was SO EXCITED about the trolley, since he loves Thomas trains. We waited a long time, about 40 minutes, for the trolley to arrive at our station, and when it finally did, Sedric was insistent that he actually sit on the bench to wait for it. :o)

|After all that excitement waiting for the trolley, Sedric|
promptly fell asleep within a minute or two.
|We saw the pilot boat (bar pilots are needed to steer all the|
large ships through the dangerous and tricky passage).
|James succumbed to the lull of sleep as well.|
|Once we got off, we checked the coins we left on the tracks.|
(that is our hotel--our room is the top corner room)
Once we were all settled in the hotel room, Marcus left to pick up dinner. After all that activity, it was nice to "order in" and not deal with another restaurant. On the menu: pizza and root beer floats:
After dinner we took another dip in the pool and then watched old "Garfield" cartoons from some DVDs that we brought. :o)
|A beautiful end to a great day.|
