Sunday afternoon the Columbia River was dotted with sailboats. On the cool November day, we sat at McMenamin’s on the Columbia and enjoyed grilled asparagus and clams in a savory souplike sauce. A fire crackled nearby. We watched sailboats, motorboats and a barge. We also watched people as they walked along the paved path between the restaurant and river. Warm, happy, relaxed with great food and a view-the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
