The River

Summertime can be, well, hit and miss here in the Pacific Northwest. When the weather is just right, you take advantage of it.

Since we had what most would identify as summer-like weather yesterday, a friend of ours invited us to the Washougal River with her. Of course our Great Dane, Lucy, would be tagging along. We decided to make a picnic out of it, so our friend brought some roasted chicken salad sandwiches and we brought some black bean salad, perfect for a summer picnic on the river. Dogs and small secluded river access areas helped make it even more so. It also gave us a chance to use the picnic basket we’ve had for years that I found at the Goodwill. I think we will definitely have to have more spontaneous river picnics this summer.
