I recently got to escape the heat here on the Texas Gulf Coast for a visit with one of my best friends and her husband who live in Washougal, WA, just across the river from Portland, OR. Oh, what a beautiful spot on this earth it is. If I lived in a perfect world with the ability to live there, I do believe I would choose this place. It is so peaceful and beautiful.
My friend's aunt owns a cabin near the mountain. Her back porch overlooks this beautiful stream. The sound of this stream is so beautiful with the water rushing by. I could listen to that sound all the time. Just so peaceful and beautiful.
