Ah, prolly won’t make it.  It’s already 0810 and woke up to snow on the ground this morning here in McMinnville.  Currently more coming down.  Big, wet, flakes the size of mutant corn flakes!

Hey, Rich-

Yep, this weekend is the Columbia River Maritime Museum messabout. If you can make it, we meet at the Rogue Ales Public House on pier 39 (off the end of 39th street) at 11:30 for lunch, then go to the museum afterward.

Not me.

And to those who talked about sharing transport with me... I will be driving solo, so I can visit family afterward. Might even stay over. See y'all at the brewpub!

John McCallum would like a ride. I'm staying over Friday night, and Mary might go along too.

I'm glad the trailer is working out well for you. The cold weather scares away my younger boys, but the oldest one(11) is usually up for going out. I usually wait for a mostly rain free day and the river to be going down a bit before I go out. There's usually less debris to avoid. Wkcc.org is a great place to check river levels.

The first part of the whale video reminded me of the first time I saw
killer whales, when I was 17. I was in a small boat too, though a
speedboat, and it was thrilling to see those big, toothy creatures from
what seemed "close up" at the time. I didn't know then that the killer
whales you usually see in the Salish Sea only eat fish. <g> But our
whales
weren't frisking about like the ones in the video, and things got a
whole
lot more exciting later on for those guys in the rowboat! The whales we
saw never came closer than the first part of the video, but it was an
experience I'll never forget.

I hate typos.  Whale was 30’ to 35’ LONG, only about ten feet away.  Grrrrrrrr.  Who types my emails anyway??

 bottle nosed whale about 30’ to 35’ away. I think I still have that slide in my mix.


We also saw larger whales breaching but they were on the horizon, too far away to really see well.

Lots of excitement!! Talk about feeling vulnerable! Reminds me of a time sailing from Honolulu to Astoria, we were mid Pacific, almost dead calm in our 32’ double ender. Light breeze brought in the smell of fish so looking around we see whales blowing about 200 yards away. One of them swam over to us, about the same length as the boat, and came along side no more than ten feet away, rolled on its side and its big eye looked us over from stern to stem as it swam slowly past. It was a bottle nosed whale about 30’ to 35’ away. I think I still have that slide in my mix.
