We walked into the Hood River Hotel and lucky for us they had one room left which we snatched up quickly. It was their family size room but too much room is better than not enough room. The room was equiped with a kitchen, 2 beds, 2 bathrooms and even biodegradable hair products and soap. Bonus! Our room had 6 very large old windows which opened up completely with no screens. The fresh air completely relaxed me.
This was the view from our window. Each window had a flower box full of blooming flowers. I could live in this room....really. The train would pass by our hotel about every hour but you forget this anytime you looked at your view. It's pretty windy in Hood River but it was such a warm day out that it felt amazing.
If you have never been to Hood River Oregon then you must make sure you to visit anytime your in the area. The streets are steep, the shops are amazing and there are 3 breweries all within blocks of each other. Our hotel was in the middle of town so we walked everywhere. What a work out! We were going green and getting fit all at once. Sweet!
We took a trip up to the Hood River Panorama Point Park. The sights were amazing! It was too cloudy to see Mt Hood but we did see the valley and all its amazing hills.
There were so many vineyards, old barns and apple farms. Ever have one of those days where you both leave the house not realizing your wearing matching outfits? We both even had blue shoes! Total fail.
So we took a drive through the valley for about an hour. Stopping only to take pictures of things .
When we got back to our hotel we went for a walk and found this beautiful sight. I have no idea what these are called but it was beautiful watching everyone. It was so warm and windy out that I could of easily layed down and took a nap. I was so relaxed and it was like my body was thanking me to being there. I have not felt this relaxed in months. All in all this walk was about 2 miles and we held hands 100% of the time. I miss holding hands with my husband and enjoyed it completely.
I was feeling pretty crappy about that soda and Zinger so I wanted to make up for it so in effort to get some fitness in I talked my husband into checking out these stairs we saw by a brewery we ate at. The stairs were stright up and we had no idea where they went. Thank goodness I had my Brooks with me because my feet were going to be busy.
All in all it was an amazing trip. My goal was to run and do yoga but I ended up doing something completely different. Walking up and down those roads and stairs was such a work out and I know I will be feeling it for another week. Even with my total failure to soda/sugar I still think I had an amazing work out and am thankful my husband was with me the whole time.
A big thank you to my husband! I had an amazing time and am thankful to be married to such an amazing man. I love you!
