Wonderful Weekend

I had such a fun weekend! I did get a little hand applique done, but didn't have time to take photos and make a post, so I'll show you a few highlights of our weekend. We took our time, saw and experienced some new things.
We camped right near this museum and the quilt block didn't escape my attention.
This photo was taken from our camping spot. The bridge was the start line for the race and to our right was the end. We couldn't have been located any better. Oh yeah, the river? The Columbia- just gorgeous!
 So fun to see them fishing in the old "locks" section of the river.

 Michelle, friend, quilter, runner came to visit me from Portland. It was so nice relaxing after the race and enjoying the day.
 We bought a big Chinook salmon from a Native American. 
Sunday morning the SS Legacy was disembarking passengers to tour the Gorge. It was a beautiful ship!

This was also part of Marine Park which was the finish line of my race.
Before heading home we went to the Bonneville dam to see the sturgeon. 

And then we were exhausted! lol
