Once I returned to Portland, we drove to Hillsboro for an afternoon session at my childhood rink, Skate World:

At the rink we met Jason and Carrie, high school friends of mine, and had a great time chatting.

After the skate session was over, we drove to Jackson Bottom for a hike in the wetlands.  For some reason, there was a chicken there:

All in all, another great day!
