We ventured out past The Dalles to a little fishing village where the Deschutes River and Columbia River meet (Deschutes River Recreation Park). It rained most of the time... (at times like cats and dogs!).. with a few moments of dry weather. Just before we left we had a few hours of sunshine (which we reveled in!).
This spot was really a beautiful place. We had a river otter playing nearby, and birds were everywhere. The boys rode bikes, fished and walked the trails. Ruby fared well.... but the kids struggled sleeping together in such close quarters (one of our tweaking moments). There is also a train that blows its horn, every hour or so.... well into the late hours of the night.... So everyone was not sleeping well.
LOOK AT THESE SLEEPY EYES
EVEN CIDER WAS EXHAUSTED
