Our Second Road Trip to Portland


Subject:  Our Second road trip to Portland

I remember taking the 5 up through Portland before exiting on the Hwy 30 towards St. Helens and just after the truck weigh station pulling right and down the hill towards Rocky Point Marina.  That is where we moved our boat shortly after buying.  Your first comments – why are you taking me to this industrial place – “I don’t like it”, we need to move the boat.

This place wore on us – Rocky Point Marina and crew.  Like it or not we actually became a power boating couple at this marina – without ever having untied the lines.  At first we thought we knew what needed to be done – that is until we met our Marine Surveyor.  She gave us a list a mile long that I am still having fond memories of completing.

Perhaps the one project I enjoyed the most was finally completing your working galley topping it off with that new Force 10 stove/oven and custom stainless steel back splash area.

Then it was off with the dogs to discover the coast and as much of Oregon as we could in our allotted time.
