WELCOME TO OUR TRIP JOURNAL!

This site will chronicle our Summer 2006 travels as we leave the SF Bay area and head for the Pacific Northwest. The current plan, always subject to change, is first to Anacortes, WA. We discovered this beautiful little town last summer when visiting Rusty, one of our full time traveling friends, who has his trawler docked at the marina where we can also park the motorhome but without hookups (which is fine with us!). Anacortes is gateway to the San Juan Islands. Dungeness crab season opens July 15th so we'll be just in time!

Next we plan to spend a few days in Pt. Roberts, WA which we learned of from Gary & Lynda, Canadian friends who winter with us in Anza Borrego. This is a tiny peninsula that can only be accessed from British Columbia and involves two border crossings to get there. We emailed the Chamber of Commerce and they sent us information on two camping sites, one of which is Lighthouse Marine County park which sounds beautiful!

From Pt. Roberts we have just a short drive back into B.C. to pick up the Tsawwassen ferry over to Sidney (near Victoria) on Vancouver Island. We plan to purchase a Circle Tour pass which will give us a much needed 15% discount. For the next couple of weeks we will explore Vancouver Island which we have not visited for over 10 years, and then without a tow car.

Our second ferry will take us from Comox (mid island) over to Powell River. Our good buddies Earl and Gail summer there in their motorhome in a small RV park (that MUST remain a secret!) right on the Strait of Georgia. They have enthralled us for years with beautiful pictures and anecdotes so we begged to be let in for a week to visit. Only after a "vote" from the Canadian residents (jokingly) as Earl and Gail are the only Americans!

Next we will have two more ferry rides down to Vancouver where we may stay a couple of days and re-visit this beautiful city.

Our plan is to be back in Petaluma mid-September for the arrival of our new granddaughter, Christina Jane, and to spend time with our family and local friends.

This winter will bring another TRIP JOURNAL as we head for Roatan, Honduras and back to Belize after Thanksgiving!

CHEERS!
