My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night dinner on the Portland Spirit

It is Saturday and our group is doing our Holiday dinner cruise on the Portland Spirit, I have been looking forward to this for a couple months. But before I get into todays adventure an update on our Mexican Cruise. I made my Airline reservations this week, I am on the same flights as Cassandra and Peggy and Kate, Julie and Trixie are going to book their flights this week. We are all planning on flying together and yes, I am going to do the whole trip as Susan including flying and Kate, Cassandra and Julie are also planning on flying as Susan. Okay back to today. Julie texted me this morning to find out what I was wearing, something only woman do. Anyway, I had my outfit all picked out, my red and black dress so I went back through the photos on my phone to find a picture of the dress to text her when I saw another dress I had worn so I went to the closet to look at that dress and soon I had 5 dresses out. What went wrong. Anyway, after a little while I changed my mined and went with my black dress with silver flecks in it. Now I was going to pick Julie up and we were going together as it is one less car to park.

I started getting ready about 3:30 as I wanted to take my time getting ready. It still amazes me how much time I am willing to put in to getting Susan ready. It was about 5:15 when I was ready and on my way to Julies house. I got there about 5:45 and Julie was already. We were soon on our way with lots of time as we can’t board the Portland Spirit till 6:30. Well it was lucky as there was so much traffic, it was almost like rush hour during the week. It was good we left early. We got downtown Portland right at 6:30 and luck would have it we found a parking spot right on Front Avenue right across the street from where we board. Now it was clod out so I wore my wrap but wearing a dress and of course open toed heels, really all that got cold were my toes. now there was a lot of people already there but we saw Peggy, Cassandra, Kate, Tobi, Jeanie and Amy so we went and joined them. Now as you board the ship that take a picture of your group.

Now it was time to board and you go down a long metal ramp at about a 40-degree angle Probably shouldn’t have worn 3″ heels, not as easy in heels although I didn’t have the highest heels. That honor went to Peggy, she had the cutest high heels. We got to the bottom and then had to go up a small ramp into the ship and then up the stairs to the upper floor where we had our tables. Now Nicole, Barb, Bambi, Kris, Barb, Joan, Laura, Max, Sophie, Melissa and her wife and I am sure I am missing someone. We had a really big group, 19 but with such a big group we were at 2 different tables and being crowded it was hard to talk with everyone but I at least got a chance to say high to everyone. Now I got to sit right next to the window which was great for the view but made it hard to talk with people other then right next to me and also hard to get out and move around. Now Peggy and Julie were just to my right and Kate and Tobi across from me and of course I had to get one selfie.

Now there were lots of pictures taken tonight it was so awesome. Now this is a new event for our group going on the Portland Spirit and I really like these events. It is nice to go someplace we have never gone before. The staff on board was wonderful and treated us awesome. Now there was a lot of people on the ship and several of the groups on the ship were doing Christmas parties. It was a really fun time on the ship. Now it was cold so I didn’t go up on deck although thinking now I probably should have.

Our waitress was awesome she took our orders and was checking on us all the time to see if we needed anything. The service was incredible and the food was wonderful. I had the Beef Tenderloin and it was so good. Several of the girls had the Salmon and that also looked wonderful. Now the dinner cruise was $70 but included dinner and desert and of course the cruise. It was a wonderful deal. It was a wonderful cruise and the lights of the city as they went by were beautiful. Now I am wondering what it would be like to do the cruise in the summer when it is still light out. We cruised up the Willamette river for about an hour before turning around and going back down. I am now really looking forward to our Mexican Cruise next October.

Now after dinner came desert and the dinner came with a brownie which looked good but they also had Pumpkin cheesecake. I love Cheesecake and I love Pumpkin pie so of course I had to have the Pumpkin Cheesecake. Peggy got the Eggnog Cheesecake and Julie got the Peppermint Cheesecake. This worked out wonderful as we all shared so we could taste each. They were all wonderful but I think the Pumpkin was the best.

It was great to see Nicole again she made it down this weekend to go out with us. She is also going on the Mexican cruise with us next October. We have 29 going so far so it will be a wonderful cruise. I had to get a picture with Nicole. I still remember the first time I met her when I was shopping. I would have liked to talk with her more. Maybe one of these times we will have to get together earlier, maybe a shopping trip.

After dinner we all got together for a group picture, while we were setting it up we had several people offer to take the picture for us, how wonderful was that. It took us about 5 minutes maybe more to get all set up for the pictures. It is such a wonderful picture of our group. I love to have pictures and be able to look back on events in my life and things I have done and the friends I have spent time with. This is why I started my blog all those years ago. Now I am not saying everyone should do a blog but you really should have some pictures and at least write down a little about what you did and who you were with as it is part of your life and a part of who you are.

Now while we were taking the picture a lady came over and started talking with Kate and me, her name was Kristin She was awesome and so nice. Of course, I had to get a picture with her. I also took a picture of her and Kate, I really like meeting people when I am out. It really was a magical night. Now we talked about going someplace after the cruise but it was almost 10 when we got back to the dock and left the ship. By the way going up the ramp from the ship in heels was way easier as it was almost like walking flat footed. We decided to call it a night. We all walked back towards where we parked and of course my toes once again got cold. It really was a shame to see the night come to an end but the memories will last a lifetime.

Thanks for reading and be sure to keep up with my latest adventures.
