Washougal Recreation Area
A short 20 minute drive from my house is the Washougal Recreation Area and Wildlife Refuge. There is a several mile quiet, protected channel on the North side of the Columbia river – no wind and not much current. A little breeze, lots of sun and lots of birds! So, it was a very enjoyable paddle.
My friend Kip – all along the dike above her, there are purple martin nesting sites (they look like bleach bottles hung on a TV antenna).
