Amtrak Cascade - Tacoma to Portland

We took the Paddywagon ride service to the Tacoma train station. Then we picked up #507 to Portland OR. The train was only seven minutes late which is a huge plus.

The train was a bit nicer than the East coast trains we are used to. The doors have sensors so you do not have to manually open them. The cafe car has a healthier menu, (I had the vegan burger with vegan bun).

Then we pulled into the station. Grabbed a taxi to Thrifty parking. Got our truck and headed back across I5 to Vancouver WA and stayed in the Vancouver Hilton, (all the hilton properties in Portland were sold out). Ate in the hotel, Gray's in the park. Ho Hum, they charge steakhouse prices and do not keep the water glasses full.

I am tired, tomorrow we get up early to go get our puppy as he graduates from boot camp.
