We’re back from our short camping/boating adventure! We headed down the Columbia River on the Washington side and put the boat in at Cathlamet, the second oldest town in the state (according to a brochure in the Hai-Ying Chinese Restaurant). Here’s the marina where we stayed the first night. You can barely see our boat there.
The following day we sailed and motored down to Skamokawa. The weather was kind of crazy and cold, and it even rained on us. Here’s the town of Cathlamet from the water:
It was fun to see giant container ships buzz on by. Those things are HUGE.
In Skamokawa we pulled the boat out at a little boat ramp. Please note the historic bridge and building in the background:
We then camped on the boat at Skamokawa Vista Park, a really nice campground right on the water. It was so cold we froze our patooties off, but wouldn’t you know, the day we leave, the weather is sunny and warm! We still had a great time, though.
