Sauvie Island is rich farmland and wildlife refuges, and at this time of the year it is a favorite place for people seeking pumpkins, corn mazes, birders and the many migratory birds that fly over and land,
But for us, it’s a place with an old (started at the end of WWII) and wonderful RV park filled with the kind of people we hoped to meet: RV experts with open hearts and wide smiles.
Within hours of parking in our site two locals came to visit and offer their tutelage on how to do things right. We were entranced by the migratory birds flying overhead, and the domestic chickens, ducks and geese wandering the park. And Ella was always on the alert as the local squirrel gangs harvested from the walnut trees, and cats wandered freely.
