We got a boat. This has been on the bucket list for years, and lo and behold, there she was on Facebook marketplace, looking older but cheap and adequate. Turns out she’s an aging beauty, and we’re actually pretty thrilled with this new adventure.

Newly on the bucket list:

  • learning to sail
  • overnighting on the boat
  • finding all the good day trips near the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater
  • sailing to Portland

We have not come up with a name yet. Any ideas?

One of the sternwheelers that cruise up and down. We see them in Portland and we see them here. Maybe they go back and forth? we aren’t sure.

What we mostly do: lounge, sunbathe, and swim off the edge
