The Rose Festival was going on in Portland along with the Saturday market and fleet week. Way too much to do for such a short stay. We took a 3 hour bike tour of the downtown and walked the markets. There we're a few young officers at our hotel bar and we bought them a round of drinks. One of them offered us a private tour of the ship the next morning so, at 0645 we were being piped aboard the Spruance.
The bus picks us up at noon today.
