I hate to see dogs tied up. I realize sometimes you can't help it, though, especially if your dog is with you when you decide to stop at a restaurant to eat. It's certainly better to tie up your dog and leave a bowl of water for your pet than to lock the poor thing in a car like some morons manage.Strolling along the Columbia River yesterday, we captured a few Ingress portals and then stopped at Clark and Lewie's for lunch. There, on the ramp were two beautiful dogs that seemed oh-so-happy to see us. It wasn't hard once we got inside to figure out who the dog's owners were because they sat directly behind us, and the dogs could see them through the glass, so they started to cry. Really sad, pitiful, mournful cries. Enough so that the owners of the restaurant let them bring the dogs insi...

Skamania Lodge - A Favorite Spot and Dog Friendly Too. We're big fans of Skamania Lodge. It’s located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge National Scenic area and is about a 30 minute drive from our home in Camas, Washington. Its close proximity makes it one of our favorite spots for a weekend away, a special occasion meal, or just an afternoon of relaxation.   The lodge is build in Pacific Northwest style which translates into a rugged sense of natural elegance in massive proportion.  Soaring ceilings, plenty of glass, heavy beams, massive rock fireplaces, and accents of wood, Native American art and design, and an ode to wildlife mix perfectly in Skamania Lodge’s many rooms.   Skamania - Swift Waters Most of the main rooms in the lodge face the Columbia River. Skamamia, a Chinook In...

  Yep, It's Another Football Blog! Hood River Tsunami Wins Big Today!   What an incredible way to spend a lovely, fall Saturday morning... watching youth football. Our 11 year old son, Ben, plays on the Hood River Tsunami (5th and 6th grade), youth tackle football team. Their team won big today, 30 to 0, against Stevenson in Stevenson, which puts the boys in the running to win the entire league this season. These team has worked so hard for so many weeks we are so proud of them all. The Tsunami season continues next Saturday in Lyle, Washington, when they play White Salmon at 10:30. Ben is number 57, the last blue player on the left below and he's an outside linebacker.

  Bridge Of The Gods Kiteboarding Festival This Weekend!   Once again, the Columbia River Gorge will live up to its reputation as the premier kiteboarding destination in the United States. In case you don’t know, kiteboarding is a sport where the athlete stands on a specialized “board” and hangs onto the rigging going to a huge kite. The geological construction of the Columbia River Gorge offers an uncommon, windy location that not only moves the athlete, but can lift him far off the water where he can perform tricks. From all over the US, kiteboarders will be competing August 19 - 21 in the nation's longest running amateur kiteboarding contest. The Festival has the reputation as being the place to compete to move from amateur to professional status. Contestants will compete in the cate...

Meet The Honey Man!This is one cool guy... friendly, a real local "character". Last weekend, Mel was photographing a client's land and spent some time taking scenery photos, too. That's when he met Daryl, the Honey Man. He sets up shop from the back of his car on the Washington side of The Bridge of the Gods, near Stevenson, WA. He has 1,200 colonies of bees from which he makes pure, specialty honey.  He mentioned a new combination of blackberry and poison oak variety - interesting. Can't wait to try that one - I think? A lot of his business is return customers which only speaks to how truly wonderful his product is.  Many visitors to the area take his honey home, then contact him for more which he mails out.  Stop by and see Daryl for some great honey.  He is usually on the Washington ...
