Ride to Fort Vancouver
Vancouver, Washington - 6/3/10
Also some Memorial Day pictures of old friends and better days
Not much of a ride since Vancouver is just across the river from Portland but...
It's been raining buckets for weeks so it was nice to get out and not get drowned
Fort Commander's Quarters
Bakery. Made some bread but mostly sea biscuits. *THOUSANDS* of sea biscuits!
One baker and three helpers worked here
Fort church. Jail to the right
Two level guard house. 8 cannons up top and rifle slits below
As it turned out, the Indians were friendly and the fort had no real threats
Fort Vancouver jail. Not too inviting...
Vietnam Memorial, Washington Park, Portland, Oregon
Memorial Day, 2010
My friend, Eric Alan Matchette, NOC Tech Extrordinaire
and a really good guy
Willamette National Cemetery, Portland Oregon
He's got himself a nice view for all of eternity
Yours truly, just beginning my life journey, 1965 and 1966
That's Ann Calabro, a very nice girl and my first GF
She's still married to the same equally nice man and living in New Hampshire.
