When Fiona and I moved our family from close-in SW Portland to Sauvie Island, it was a big change.....but one of the best decisions we've made. Granted, we did have to become a bit more organized since we couldn't just "run" down to the store to pick up that forgotten item, but it's been worth it.
My favorite things about the Island:
Here are some great links to websites with information about Sauvie Island. Please check back to this page as I'm often updating it.
sauvieisland.org By far the most comprehensive website on the Island. A great resource for local residents and visitors.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauvie_Island Good basic information
http://www.firstconnect.it/map-applications.html Great resource for information on flood plains.
Sauvie Island Coffee I start out every morning with a cup....or two.
