1043. Picture Window View

Colombia River...
several logs float by
in the rain.

Link with 1042: In a row.

[My folks used to live in British Colombia at the Southern end of the Arrow Lakes, not too far from where the Colombia River flows across the border into Washington. I have fond memories of visiting them in the Summer when my brother and I would swim across to the other side and back (the water was really cold). Sometimes it rained hard and we'd come inside and look out the picture window at the breathtaking view of the Colombia as it flowed by.]

Probably hurt to get hit by one. A view I'd love to see.

Pamela: That's right, you are a ways down stream from there. I bet it would be a long swim across where you are. :-)

Floots: Thanks.

John: Thanks.

Andrew: Thanks.

Borut: Thank you.

Polona: I'm pleased you think so. It brings back very pleasant memories for me (and my folks).

Pat: Yes, they are huge. When it wasn't raining, Dad and I would sometimes go out in a boat and haul them in for firewood.
