We spent a layover on a houseboat on Hayden Island in the Columbia River. These look like houses but move with water levels, some say as much as 15′. The morning was spent shopping and 4 prized hats set the mood. Most of our day was spent on the deck watching boats go by with a beer in hand. The final conclusion was that the bigger the boat, the better looking the women on it. I’m not sure if that holds true for sea kayaks.
