Today it started off misty and damp. Typical for Washington and Oregon coast. We toured the Columbia River Gorge area and the Bonneville Dam Fish Hatchery. Then off to see the house that Jim and Shirley are building. It has been quite a project for them and they will so glad when they can move in and relax somewhat and enjoy the views. On the way back we dropped Shirley off for her exercise class and we went back to Jim's and picked up our car. It was a rather long day and everyone was tired. Not quite sure how Shirley was going to work out. But guess she did ok.
