|Down the long floating dock to our home|
We're loving life on the Columbia River in Portland. We live in a lovely, small houseboat on Columbia Slough, complete with osprey, our resident heron, baby ducks and geese, and a bold, day cruisin' raccoon. It's not dissimilar to boat living, in that you haul everything a long way to your slip.

Pura Vida waits for us in Mexico. She's in dry dock at Guaymas, being watched over by Ops Mgr Gabriel and his crew. We are having the deck stripped and re-fiberglassed, a huge project, and one which we hope is going well...
|Summer in Bend, Oregon. Yep that's snow at Mt Bachelor|

Mike and I both have paid jobs, thankfully, to replenish the cruising kitty. Mike works in Vancouver, WA and I have 3 part time jobs in Portland, doing freelance marketing. Mind you, we were working the 10 months we lived on the boat, just not getting "paid", per se, yet benefiting from the results of that labor.
