CDX - Camper Dog Excellent

This week Charlie got to go RV camping for the first time and had a great time!

We did a joint trip with a sailboat part-way down the Columbia, camping at spots along the river.

We picnicked at St. Helens, overlooking the river. Charlie had a bowl of food, as well as tidbits that dropped.

Then we stayed overnight in a county park near Rainier and a marina at Cathlamet. Charlie was a good camper and even went down to the docks at Rainier (he found Cathlamet a little too scary.)

My Human has been remember wistfully the summer vacation she had in Oregon and Washington in the early 1980's. Now that the temperture in our area is ~157 degrees, she checks on Newport, OR and wishes she was there! She got stuck there during that vacation when Mt St Helens blew ash everywhere and her parents car didn't work.

Hey Charlie,

Your holiday sounds great.

Don't be scared of the boats, dude, there are always dribbly smells on them.

I remember I slept in our boat which was being towed behind the car on the way over to Yorke Peninsula. It was like being in my mum's convertible, yaaaaaay.

Camping is fun.

And I'm liking that table of food...

Chow for now, Tin Tin

Camping rocks, totally!

I camp out every day at the cabin here in the northernmost woods of Minnesota.

Best thing is the cool sand - you can always dig a deep, refreshing hole to lay in.

Happy summer!
