|That's just PART of it in the background!|
We did another tiny hike on Saturday (our actual anniversary- five years is wood so appropriate!), in the rain, along Starvation Creek, then spent the rest of the day wandering around Hood River proper, charming people with our silky-soft pig (apparently rain-showers do wonder for her fur). I'm not even kidding: people in Hood River love our dog. Everyone wanted to pet her, and she kept being invited into stores. We had dinner at Solstice Cafe (so amazing. If you get the chance you absolutely should go), where we were allowed to have her sit at the (outside) table with us, and when she got pitiful and I let her curl up in my lap it just absolutely charmed all the people who passed by.
Today we got up and soaked in the hot tub for a while (I did "laps" because why not?), then checked out and headed into town to try out Bette's, which the front desk clerk had recommended to us for breakfast. Well, they must be super good, because the line was out the door and we were all, "Nope," and instead ducked across the street to Nora's Table, which was downright serendipitous. The food was incredible, so I'm not sure why it wasn't equally crowded, but I'm damn glad it wasn't!
On the way home we did another little hike, up to Emerald Falls:

Yay anniversary weekend!
