A Tour-Willamette River

I felt so happy about my tour directing, that I decided to give my Toby a tour of a new (to me) swim hole. We went today, the hottest day we’ve had so far this summer, and it was gloriously wet and cool in the Willamette River. Toby hasn’t been able to go with me as much here lately, but he told me he still has a bit of life in him yet and HE WANTED TO GO–yes sirree, that’s what he said! And he had fun on my tour, I just know it. But I digress–I’m suppose to be giving a tour……

There was a lot going on today! Power boats racing by.A skier (not sure I’d like that).

Some people in a kayak and a jet boat with a whole lot of people! Some guy was taking pictures–I wonder if he took one of me? And,  do you see those ducks? I’m glad they didn’t want my ball!

Oh, by the way, you can rent those kayaks. I didn’t see any dogs in the ones that went by. I wonder if that’s something I can add to my tours?

Check out this big boat. I bet there were a whole bunch of people on it watching me play ball! You get a lot of exposure out on this river!I had to take a little time out from my tour to chew on a piece of wood I found in the river, but Toby was OK with that. He said wood-chewing was important–it was a great source of fiber. He’s taught me so much…. To complete my tour, a little shake off is in the itinerary. It’s part of the whole package, in case you didn’t know.I hope you enjoyed my tour of this part of the Willamette River!

  1. I bet Toby had a great time joining you today! I am not sure Mom and Dad would let me get in the Illinois River, it’s pretty dirty in a bad way and there are all those crazy Asian Carp in there, but I sure wish we had a place to swim.

  5. I think I see PeeWee packing his bags to come and visit you and enjoy your gigantic swimming pool. Me? I will take that big boat. Looks just about Mango size.
