Seven Feathers Casino

Today finds us on the road heading toward our destination of Portland Oregon for the Rose Festival. Our first stop is Seven Feathers Casino Resort. This is a regular stop each year when heading for Portland. It is our first time. We aren't gamblers, but a fine meal and a nice bottle of wine works for us.

Anyone that has traveled up or down Interstate 5 can attest to how long and lonely much of that trip can be. We'll have each other for company so that will help some. We'll also stop somewhere for a quick lunch and then get back on the road.

The bittersweet part of this is we wouldn't be going at all if our Little Bit was still with us. We never boarded her and if we had to go somewhere we had someone house sit so she would be at home. We know she stayed with us as long as she could, but that doesn't mean we won't be thinking of her often while we're gone.

We're planning on a fun trip with like-minded boating folks. All the folks that we'll be dealing with in IOBG are past commodores of various clubs around the world. Each bringing their part of the world to the table, and that's the very best part.

  1. Look at it this way: once you get back home, contact me via FB and Seymour will be on his way for Visit#2.

  4. That sounds like a fun trip. Can't wait to hear more about it. We do miss our animals that have left us. I still miss our Ande. I just plain miss having a dog. Sandee, you and Zane have a wonderful trip.

  5. Have an enjoyable dinner Sandee & Zane and don't drink to much. Wine gives a loving feeling. That's what my friends tell me. Ha,ha,ha. Keep safe my friends. See ya.

  12. You go into a casino and don't gamble? You have better character and are more disciplined than I am. Have a fun trip even if part of it is on I-5.

    1. It's morning here and no we didn't gamble. Not one cent. :)

  13. I've never been out west so I wouldn't know I-5 from Adam, but I will ask you to put five bucks on black for me. Just kidding. I've never been in a casino either, but I do watch too much TV.

    Anyway, enjoy your trip. Have an adventure.

    1. It's just boring for the most part. Long and nothing for miles and miles. Then you hit the mountains and it's beautiful. :)

    2. Mountains are beautiful to look at. I don't like being atop them. I still have nightmares about Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Hope you have a great book for the boring parts ;)

    3. I do have a great book. I don't mind the mountains, it's those long stretches of nothing that get to me. :)

    1. We took Little Bit with us almost everywhere. We enjoyed being with her almost as much as she enjoyed being with us. :)

  15. We took the really slow way through Oregon, the coast from Portland to San Francisco. It was so lovely. Have a great time.

  16. Safe travels! We're looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! Angel says she'll try to be brave! I know exactly how you feel about Little Bit because I still feel that way about Sadie. You'll see her smiling face is still around for us to see here.

  18. I hope the two of you have a fabulous trip and I believe "Little Bit" is riding along with you. I really do. It's sounds like you will have a grand time.

    Be safe. Miss you.

  25. Hope you have a great time Sandee. When I read the title Seven Feathers Casino I thought it was going to be a joke about those glamorous dancers that have the feather costumes.

    1. No, I was telling you the truth. :)

  26. Hi Sandee, it's always sad when we lose a pet. Remember her fondly and raise a glass of good wine in her memory.... I have no doubt that you did!
