notes from the Coast Starlight (day two)
(The forest primeval. Actually, mostly second and third
growth forest. But still beautiful.)
(Treetops. Also, breakfast menu.)
Day two on the Coast Starlight. Discovered dining in the Parlour Car. Befriended by the most amazing older couple -- Shirley and Knight -- with whom we have now shared two lunches and a wine & cheese tasting. Strangely, will miss them with all my heart after they detrain in Portland. Almost within shouting distance of Seattle. Well, three hundred miles until we sleep in Anacortes tonight.
(Approaching Seattle at last.)
