On the Columbia

Once the tourist season is over (i.e. in October) it is actually possible to get into Maryhill State Park. Get in early enough and you may have a river-view campsite.

We stayed two weeks and were blessed with warm, sunny weather the first week.


One last visit from the family rock star.

On October 18th we moved down river back to Columbia Riverfront RV Park in Woodland, WA so that I could fly to a CWCCA board meeting in the Cincinnati area out of PDX.

Tom enjoys staying there so that he can watch the boats. This time he had a great view through the front window, albeit past the playground equipment.

Dog Show Weekend

Another year, another visit to Umatilla Marina RV Park. This year we stayed there instead of staying on the grounds, and were joined by Mandy and Jamie and Catherine and Nora and canines Pilot and Zellie and Mae and Hiro and Delta and Franklin. Pilot won the specialty from the veteran class.

Here's a few of the adorable sub-peewee handler photos.

All three were winners!
