Out of Order and Off the Water
Above is an image born from traveling down the lower Columbia River several weeks ago. Near Astoria, the Columbia makes a broad sweep, and widens out to a bay full of islands and shallow sands. I found the river there beautiful, and the map of the way it curved and braided to be fascinating. This is my watercolor adaptation of the map.
This post is made from land, as we have been off the boat in Seattle for a week in order to have a watermaker installed. Now we have traveled (overland) to Portland for a party to celebrate the captain's retirement from the practice of surgery.
In another two or three days, we will be back on the boat, and back to the practice of (chronologically) recording our journey.
