Since I can be rather anal retentive about things sometimes, Tim enjoys not telling me any details as to what his plans are for us. This past weekend was just that. I went up to Portland to visit Tim again having no idea what was in store for me. I tried to relax the best that I could and went with the flow and boy was is worth it!

After a round of golf, we headed off to the next surprise which was tubing down the Clackamas River. Floating down a river was something that I have never done before and as I got in my tube, I learned that this trip would be three hours long - much longer than I expected, but I slathered on my sunscreen and prepared for the ride. The Clackamas River is a rather calm river, but is certainly not devoid of excitement. There were occasional rapids that we went through that threatened to flip me over, but always bestowed a refreshing splash of water to cool me off. It was great to relax and chat with Tim’s friends for a bit. Even though I was fond of the experience, it was a little too passive of an activity for me and I think something more action packed such as kayaking or rafting down a more tumultuous river is much more up my alley.

Tomorrow, Tim will be coming down to spend a weekend with me in on the coast where I will get to surprise him! Stay tuned to see what I have in store for another one of Sara’s Oregon Adventures.
