Narrative:
 Join me for a morning paddle from Scappoose Bay Marina to Warrior Rock Lighthouse on the Columbia. We will paddle down the Multnomah channel on an ebbing tide to the confluence with the Columbia. We will round Warrior Point and paddle a short distance up river to a nice, sandy beach near the lighthouse. Here we will take a break, snack, get wet?, and take in a bit of the Columbia river traffic before heading back. Should be back to the Marina by 1:00. Small parking fee at the Marina.
