Port Angeles Fly-Out

Today several of us flew to Port Angeles for lunch. Great flight, fun destination. The restaurant is in the terminal building, which is frozen in time from circa 2000 -- there is even a Windows 2000 anti-piracy ad on the wall.

The restaurant is nothing special -- in fact it's a typical commercial airport deli. However the former departure lounge now seats up to 30 in a private meeting room setting: with food served. Nice view of the runway from that room. If you are interested in eating there, they are open Tuesday thru Saturday (with Saturday being an experiment) from 9:00 - 3:30.
