Yep, we're on the move.... again. This is the place Adam and I wanted to move to originally when we decided to move north, but the timing with jobs just wasn't right. Well, now that we've got a metaphorical 'bun in the oven', I've decided to make a career change to work with a private pediatric therapy center in downtown Hood River. This job will provide much more flexibility than my current job. And Hood River is just so darn sporty and cool. We will be back up in the mountains again, exploring and soaking up the fresh air. Well, at least until the little one arrives.
One of the things Hood River is known for is its the "Windsurfing Capital of the US" (well, that and Hawaii). We visited to look at a house today and here's what it looks like on the Columbia River around 2 or 3pm.....
Actually, kiteboarding has taken over as the most popular form of water sport here. Its truly amazing to watch all the bright colors out there on the river. I probably won't be trying my hand at THAT this summer....
We think we have made a decision about where to live. After a slight disappointment today, we feel pretty good about a newer town-home that we've been looking at. The whole -not getting a dog- thing might plague us once again, but there are worse things to happen to people I suppose. Here are just a few snapshots of the place.
The front of the town-home:
The patio off the master bedroom (sorry its dark):
The kitchen/dining area:
So, there is a lot more to this place, but I just didn't get many pictures. I also didn't get shots of the complete lack of yard around this place. Oh well, you can't have EVERYTHING :)
