Sails on the Columbia

Friday was "blue skies and a great day for sailing" and while I did see one boat on the Columbia as I walked over the I-205 bridge, there were lots more there on Saturday when the skies were not as blue. Probably had something to do with Friday being a workday. . . caught a few of them while on a walk with my friend, Dorothy, after we walked Officer's Row and attended a program to celebrate Lincoln's birthday at the Pearson Air Museum, we walked over to the Columbia River to introducer her to Rosie the Riviter statue. I think I wore her out but she says she likes to walk and one day we hope to walk out to Vancovuer Lake again -- 15 miles round trip. Unless we decide to walk Frenchman's Bar beach strip which will add 2miles doubled to it. . . Without further ado, here's a few of the sails I saw this weekend before the rains really came on Monday.

It seems to be a nice place to go sailing!
You said "Frenchman's bar"?Do you know why it is called that way?

I wish I was there to walk with you but that water looks so cold.

We had rains here yesterday,too. Ther are some heavy clouds today, but patches of blue. It the blue hods, I may get to go take pictures of Dave's sheep--as of Sunday he had three new lambs and the others coming any time. No sails here, of course.

I would love to take that walk with you. Come join us at 6 AM every morning, but it is only 3-4 miles.

That sounds like a fun walk. Wish I could go with you. Love the sail boat pictures.

It's still so cold here that I'm trying to wrap my mind around the fact that people are sailing where you are.

Your pictures are beautiful as always. Love river, lake etc pictures. I am so impressed with all that walking you do. You inspire me. I need to get up and start walking myself. Keep on walking girl!

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
