14. I’m thankful for the water around me. Whether it’s clean drinking water, a warm shower, snow, a lake to kayak in, a pool to swim in, ice for my drink, a river to fish in, rain, or an ocean to be amazed at I am so grateful and thankful for all it’s lovely forms.Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Fourteenth”
Kevin and Karen, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Later on Saturday Karen and Kevin took the kayak back down the river to the lake to explore and paddle around a bit. I think Kev liked it.
Mom and Me, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. On Saturday Mom and I took the kayak for a spin. We went out toward the main body of the lake, then turned around and headed up stream with the intent of taking the kayak back to the camp site. We almost made it, but couldn’t quite getContinue reading “Mom and Me”
Down Stream, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Thursday, our first full day camping, Karen and I decided to take the little mister along on a kayaking trip down this river, out into Davis Lake, and all the way across… then back. It ended up being a three hour trip and by the time we got backContinue reading “Down Stream”
On The Water, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So here’s us enjoying a quiet moment gliding along. Doesn’t Weston look handsome in his orange life vest? This photo is courtesy of our friend, Stacia, who was in the boat behind us. Thanks Stacia!
Floating Clouds, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We had a great weekend… again. A visit from Mom and Don (they brought dinner to us no less), Weston getting a clean bill of health at the vet on Saturday, visits to nurseries (Cistern, on Sauvie Island, and Joy Creek to pick up some more plants for ourContinue reading “Floating Clouds”

The New Boat, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We bought a kayak. Yes, we’ve now moved from riding motorcycles to kayaking, officially. This is a picture of our new boat. Not brand new, but new to us. We decided that buying a brand new kayak would just make us crazy worrying about putting scratches on it…Continue reading “The New Boat”
Take Me To The River, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. From this hour I ordain myself loosed of limits and imaginary lines. -Walt Whitman
Last weekend was so full, so busy, that it went by in a sort of hurried blur. Here’s a recap… staining the deck on Friday after work until it got so dark we could no longer see what we were doing (TIP: do not do this, the end result will sadly be less than youContinue reading “Last Weekend, In Brief”

On The Beach, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went kayaking today with a group out of the Ridgefield Marina on Lake River. What a great day for a boat trip. Warm weather, great company, and a terrific tandem boat. We decided to try a tandem boat and ended up loving it. I think we’ll probablyContinue reading “On The Beach”
IMG_0701, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. It’s the last day of March. I went outside this morning and snapped a few photos of the yard, freshly coated in a nice new dusting of snow. Who can believe it. Snow, in late March. Where’s the sun? I’m ready for it! We had a great weekend. Busy, butContinue reading “A Bit of Snow”
It’s March 28, and snowing. Not much more to say about that other than… what the hell? I’m looking out the window of my office and can see several fishing boats out on the Columbia River. Those are some die hard fishermen. My director, Stan, included. He’s out there somewhere, braving the cold with theContinue reading “Snowing”
