Sauvie Island


We went to Sauvie Island today. Collins Beach, where the breeze is light and the clothing is optional. We didn't take too many pictures.

We packed a cooler with some smoked salmon, shrimp poke, fresh fruit, water and coffee drinks. On the way, we stopped at Mickey-D's for an Egg McMuffin and some coffee, then headed to our favorite spot. Collins Beach is on the Columbia River, and it is one of just two clothing optional beaches in Oregon. The beach is sandy and the whole island is a natural viewing area. We saw a trio of bald eagles and several osprey. 

Our Tommy Bahama umbrella from last season still worked well, and a new one we found recently at Costco. These umbrellas screw in to the ground and are very secure when it's breezy. They also tilt.

There is a view of Mt. St. Helens from where we were sitting. We could also see Mt. Hood on the drive.

After catching a few rays and light snack, we packed up and hit the road before rush hour. It was a nice day to go to the beach.
