We live so close to Champoeg, that its been criminal we hadn't been there yet. We checked out the 1800's garden, and barn, then went for a bit of a hike along the river.
A ways into the trail, a fisherman came out of a little path. I asked him if the fish were biting, and he said they were. We decided to see if the path took us to the shoreline. It opened up to a wide area of sandy beach. I stripped to my boxers and got in, of course at first it was cold, but I soon acclimated and began enjoying the swim!
We are gonna head back soon, I am real excited. We are gonna pack a light lunch and some beer, and make a day of it!
