My family and I drove up to Portland yesterday to hit up OMSI and tour the USS Blueback. It was a lovely drive complete with snow flurries on the pass. OMSI is super impressive and the brain teasers were real stumpers. Wish we had spent more time in the Turbine Room with all of the engineering, physics and chemistry hands on demos. The USS Blueback was a wonderful tour! Thomas, the guide, was entertaining and patient with the kiddos on the tour. Emil added in interesting tidbits from his Navy days, too. They filmed a small portion of The Hunt for Red October on this sub.
We had lunch at Pine State Biscuits, our usual spot for breakfast or lunch when we go to Portland. LOVE the new location with additional seating and an outside area for dining. Course, we went back today for lunch again before driving back.
My new favorite is the Mcisley since I love mustard! Also, their homemade pimiento cheese is to die for!
