Willamette Weekend

 
It's just so doggone hot!
All I want to do, is lay in the pool, then coat myself in dirt.
 
Auntie Mary came for a visit and the folks all went down to the river, without us dogs!
They paddled in circles.....they bumped into other kayaks...they finally got some rhythm and momentum...BOL 

They paddled up the Willamette River to see the falls.
 
 
First, they stopped at the abandoned locks to snoop around.
These historic multi-chambered locks were built in 1873 and comprise of 7 gates in 4 chambers, which lift up 50 ft. They served as free passage past the falls, for pleasure boats and small commercial craft, until their closure in 2011. 
 
Onward to the Willamette Falls!
 
 Dad, Mom, Mary and the cell phone survived!
 

Then they went, wet clothes and all, to eat lunch and drink wine.
 
They finally came home and filled up the dog pool and let the real entertainment begin!
 
Happy Summer and Stay Cool, Furiends!

  2. Looks like fun! We've been very lucky in Chicagoland - it's been in the 70's the last few days so I got extra long walks.

  3. Looks like a lot of fun time in the water for the peeps and the furries. Mom has bought two of those pools for her Sibes, and none of us has any interest:( And yep, it is still hot here.
