For my birthday Lonestar took me on a Sterneheeler Cruise on the Columbia River.
It was an elaborate brunch cruise including Mimosa’s and other beverages. Some brunch items were french toast, eggs benadict, fresh fruit, and much more.
Marvelous scenery as we traveled down the Columbia River.
We even caught a glimpse of some wildlife.
An Osprey sitting on her nest guarding her offspring

Native American fishing village. Fishing docks line the river banks.
This is called the Bridge of the Gods. At one time it was a dirt bridge connecting Oregon and Washington. When it collapsed the steel bridge was built. The average water depth of the river is 50 feet, however, under the bridge the depth is 100 feet.
When you enter the docks this statue greets you. I liked it so I have added it to this post.
The cruise cost was $55 each but well worth the price and one fabulous birthday present. If you get a chance take the trip. They also provide a dinner cruise.
