Warm, sandy beaches in summer, what could be better??! Growing up near the beach with a water view... I really miss it, so coming back to the beach is like a pilgrimage in a way. Here we are on Sauvie Island, a farming community island on the outskirts of Portland, OR. It's a perfect place for bike riding since it's flat (I hate those hills!) But this time, we just drove around to admire the farm land and went to the beach :) Happy days.
