Losing Our Head

No I didn't go crazy: Head is the maritime word for toilet. So losing our head doesn't mean we've gone crazy, but that we may very soon...

Happy New Year

Lets make 2022 a great year. For us that means confirming my complete remission and resuming our cruising, on top of the other more...

30 Years.

Things might be getting serious. Di and I said "yes" 30 years ago. We decided to mark the occasion with a nice down river cruise, and of...

Home for the Holidays

Going back to the boat I was able to get a nice upgrade to Business Class, giving me plenty of space away from other passengers. In these...

Complete Remission

The magic phrase I've been waiting for for the last 2 years. After getting "perfect" blood test results 3 days ago, I was quietly hopeful...

Fingers, Toes and Paws Crossed.

Off for my medical check. Results soon, hoping to be declared in complete remission. In the meantime we'll all keep our fingers, toes and...

The Sound of Silence

People imagine a boat at anchorage or remote dock is a very quiet and tranquil place. In many ways it is, but in others, a complex power...

St Helens Marine Park

A skip and a hop away from Portland is the town of St Helens, and front of which is the island of St Helens Marine Park. We had a...

Back to the Future

With our old obsolete GPS units that couldn't be upgraded anymore it was time for a serious refresh of the electronics in our pilothouse....

Catching Up

Being full time live aboard means we use the boat's system on a regular basis. I argue that's a good thing and keeps everything working....

Cruising by the Numbers

With our cruise completed, it's time to have a quick look at "the numbers". The interesting part as far as I am concerned is that the...

Beacon Rock State Park and a last hop

The park was as wonderful as we'd remembered it, but this time mostly empty which allowed plenty of local animals to come and pay us a...

The Gorge

We stayed a couple of days at The Dalles: We had done another round of clearing things from our cabinets so had a large bag of donations...

2 Locks, The Dalles, SS Legacy

A long day to get us back down to The Dalles with 2 lock transits planned: John Day and The Dalles locks. We decided to head further down...

Kennewick and Irrigon

Leaving beautiful Fish Hook behind we made way for Kennewick again, mostly as a stop to replenish our water tanks, get some decent...

Fish Hook with Friends

We kept Fish Hook on our "must return" list, so we decided to stop again on our way back down the river. The day was easy, with just the...

While I'm at it...

Today was a day off. Enjoy the quiet marina (Boyer again) and relax. Then, seeing the beautiful dry sunny weather, I figured it'd be a...

Lyons Ferry Park

We'd swore to avoid Lyons Ferry marina on the way back if we could, so we chose to go on the other side of the river instead at Lyons...

Our Own Private Idaho

After a last squirrel chasing session at the park for Princess, we set off to commence our return trip, but not before heading up river...

The Last Lock

Leaving Boyer we were less than 2 miles away from the last lock, Lower Granite Lock. I raised them on VHF 14 from the pump out station...
