Hello,my bucket list friends it’s time for part 5 of my Portland adventure. In this part of my vacation I crossed off a list item that I can’t wait to tell all of you about. Here we go!
Portland OR. vacation part 5
Before I get into this part of my adventure I’m gonna rewind a little bit and tell you a funny story. The day we left for vacation I booked a helicopter tour of Portland for my mom and I . Not only did a helicopter tour sound like a lot of fun I was excited to cross another item of my list ,at least that’s what I thought. A few days before the tour I was looking at my bucket list to see what number I would soon be crossing off. I was shocked when I realized that ridding in a helicopter was not on my list after all! There really was no need to panic though because since I wanted ridding in a helicopter to be on my bucket list I just added it. One of the great thing about a bucket list is that you can keep on adding to it as you find new things you want to do. Anyways now that we are all caught up, let’s get back to my adventure in Portland. The day of the helicopter ride I was very excited to experience something new. The ride was scheduled for noon, we got there a little early but we were the first ones of the day so we started filling out the paper work right away. Our helicopter pilot was very friendly and talkative. I had a fun time taking pictures by the helicopter then it was time to ride. It felt really awesome to use a head set to talk to each other during the ride. I had only seen thins kind of thing on TV before. Now let’s talk about the views . Portland was built in a forest and getting to see that huge forest from the air was simply amazing! I also really enjoyed seeing the rose garden from the air it looked just as beautiful as it did on land! After our ride we headed on to our next activity The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. I was excited to visit this museum because they had a Pixar exhibit there! After we got our tickets for the museum. we went to the Imax theater located in the museum. We saw a moved called superpower dogs. The movie focused on dogs who have very important jobs everything from search and rescue to therapy dogs. My mom and I both really enjoyed it. If you ever get a chance to see this movie I highly recommend it. When it was time to go to the Pixar exhibit I was very excited! I love the movies that Disney and Pixar make together and I was looking forward exploring the exhibit. After watching a video about the exhibit it was finally time to go see it ! I really enjoyed looking at big statues of some of Pixar’s most famous charters including Dory and Buzz Lightyear . I also had a fun time doing the interactive stations at the exhibit. These stations let you experience parts of the animation process for yourself. After the Pixar exhibit We checked out some of the museum’s regular exhibits before going to our last exhibit of the day, a submarine! Now, I’m not talking about a model submarine , I’m talking about a real submarine that is kept in the river right next to the museum. When you are on the submarine you are actually under the water! It was very interesting walking around a real submarine. There was a lot to see and we had a great tour guide who gave us all kinds of information about the submarine. Needless to say this day was jammed packed with a lot of fun. It was a great was to spend the last full day of our vacation. Rock On – Christina Epperly
