Kayaking on the Tualatin River

I love kayaking – the quite, easy kind of kayaking.  And the Tualatin River is just that!   The perfect place to kayak……

My friend was visiting from California over the Labor Day weekend.  The only time she has kayaked is when she was with me – and insisted we go!  We had a long wait –  The Alder Creek Kayak rentals off of Nyberg at Brown’s Ferry Park is first come first serve – So at 3:30pm we sat on the dock and waited for the last tandem (two person) kayak to come in and at 4:35 we were on the water.

There are some amazing homes along the river – Oh would I love to have a little house that looks out onto the river with my own little dock…. (dreaming)…..

It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful.  We watched a raccoon go fishing, ducks chasing each other and scrub jays arguing in the trees.  We paddled and drifted.

What a way to spend a beautiful day!
