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...

Locks

Today we went through our 2nd and 3rd lock, The Dalles and John Day. Slowly slowly we're getting better at it, but it's still a new...

The Dalles

After a short navigation we got to the Dalles early enough to go explore the town. The marina is small and sadly suffered a major fire...

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...

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...

Boosted

Both the CDC and the French medial authorities have approved the use of a 3rd dose for immune-compromised people. I contacted my Doctor...

Enfin Home. Home at Last.

A bilingual title, as it felt so good to get home and open Enfin after so many months. On arrival we found Enfin in great shape. Recently...

The Good Life

Slowly settling in to our new found life. In some ways it feels as if we'd left yesterday. In others it feels like it was an eternity...

Take me Home

With the Doc pushing us to take a well earned vacation and the words "Enjoy life!" now being a medial prescription, Di, Princess and I...

Vaccinated? Probably.

With the strong treatments I received in the last months, my immune system was wiped out. At my lowest point I stayed 3 weeks in a fully...
