Christmas Ships in Portland

Last Thursday night, Chick and I went down to Portland's waterfront to see the 2011 Christmas Ships parade.
First stop...drinks and appetizers at McCormick and Schmicks Harborside Pilsner Room. They have an amazing happy hour menu (3-6PM) and we had a nice view of the marina where some of the boats were all lit up in anticipation of the parade, which began at 7PM.

Then a brisk walk in the chilly night air to see the ships leave the Portland Marina, cross over to OMSI then head north to the Fremont Bridge.

This has been a wonderful Portland Christmas tradition for over 57 years.
