When I am at home in Taupo I have sometimes shared the river view from my bedroom window.
A few days ago Linda and I travelled through the Cascade Mountains to the city of Yakima so Linda could visit with a quilting friend she has met through quilting.
The whole trip was a great experience with some breathtaking views along the way.
We stayed in a basic hotel overnight and the Yakima River could be seen from our window. Not quite the beautiful Waikato River that we can see from home but it was lovely to have some water close at hand.
