Boyer Marina

Little Goose Lock was only a few miles away from the marina and as we're now in winter schedule, the operator was happy to get the lock...

Lyon's Ferry.

Welcome to the Far West. Although we've been heading mostly East since leaving Portland, the further inland we've gone the more "Far...

Fish Hook

We left the Port of Kennewick late after planning a fairly short day of navigation. There aren't many marinas on the Snake River, so the...

Lost and Found

On arrival at Fish Hook Recreational Park's dock I noticed our rear fender was gone. I asked Di (who handles the stern of the boat during...

Port of Kennewick

We left as early as we could on a gloriously bright morning and made our way towards the Port of Kennewick. Within a short time we...

The Heat is On

We decided to push for a long day from Arlington to Umatilla, and we had typical fall weather the whole day. Low visibility and spitting...

Arlington

The other one... Yes there is a cemetery here too, but that's about the end of the similarities with the place we lived in when we first...

Off the charts

We've done it: We've gone off the charts! Our Furuno chart plotter has a US and Canada coastal waters SD Card, and today we arrived at...

The Longest Day

Today was our longest navigation day so far, for a total of almost 12 hours. It sounds like not much compared to our previous coastal...

This TV is no more

So it happened today: The main salon's TV decided to act up. At first it was a single black vertical line, rapidly followed by more and...

Port of Hood River

We left tiny Cascade Locks Sunday end of morning with an easy 20 miles to Port of Hood River ahead of us. Turning around in the tight...

Slave to the Rhythm

A river cruise is a new animal for us, and after only a few days on the river we're already trying to find our new rhythm. Our last...

Port of Cascade Locks

Exiting Bonneville lock we had 2 options. Go far up to Hood River Port or stay local. We decided to try our luck in the tiny marina of...

Bonneville Lock

Our first time through a lock! I've obviously been through many locks on larger ships when I was still sailing, but going through one on...

Beacon Rock State Park

A full day of navigation and by end of afternoon we arrived at Beacon Rock State Park. Navigation upriver is rather slow on Enfin. After...

Government Island

Not exactly an end of the world destination from Portland, but a nice one nevertheless. Government Island is a local park only a few...

Cruising Speed

After a last provisioning session and some more organizing around the boat we left Salpare Marina on 01st Sept. Our provisioning wasn't...

This is a Test, Only a Test

Normally we keep Enfin with all systems in cruise ready condition. After all the time we spent taking care of me and putting cancer in...
