Last summer our daughter spent a week sailing in the Columbia River Gorge. Luckily, she took me along for support (and money!). It was blowing between 20-30 mph the first 3 days! I've never seen so many small boats capsize. At the end of the first day, I thought Annie (our daughter) would want to throw in the towel. Nope! That is one resilient kid! She had an absolute blast out there. Once I was sure she didn't need me for emotional support, I did a little exploring and snapped a few fun photos, like this one, for painting.
I will be joining her again this summer in the Gorge, but sadly, the scene will look a little different after the massive wildfire last year.
