Sep 14, 2018 - Cascade Mountains and Meow!

22018-09-14.Meow!! If we thought that the drive to Winthrop was hair raising, the drive to the "upper left coast", as they call it here, was heart-stopping. WA-20 is not called the Cascade Highway for nothing. As we left Winthrop, we saw, for the first time, a fire-fighting tent city and staging area though no fires were visible nor did we smell smoke. There must have been hundreds of two man tents pitched in a field and in the adjacent woods to support the fire fighters and along the highway were "Fire fighting equipment entering" signs....

Aug 5, 2016 - Bumming in Bow

Spent three weeks in the Bow/Edison area...we loved it so much. Samish Island is a beautiful private island with million dollar residences (equivalent of $5-10 million in SoCal). We talked to an older woman who remembered summer cottages built in the '30's, absolute freedom to row around the island as a child, and packs of summer kids freely roaming from house to house. Lake Whatcom is an enormous lake, the southern end has a golf course, private communities, and lots of homes down long, dead end, lakeside cul-de-sacs. The northern has...

Aug 21, 2011 - Indians Fishing

We just barely made it to church on time. Carolyn was a little upset with my driving, but at least we made it. We went to Christ The King church. The senior pastor is a former pro football player. The church is into starting other churches at different locations. The music is great and the sermon is all about the bible. The pastor does a great job of explaining the authenticity of the bible. After church, we decided to stop and check out a Thousand Trails campground in LaConner. We drove through and stopped at the clubhouse to see what it...

Aug 20, 2011 - Deception Pass, Ocean at Last

Today was the day when Carolyn finally got to the ocean. We drove about 20 miles to Fidalgo Island. We drove to the town of Anacortes where we stopped at the visitor center to get some maps and the schedule for the ferry boats. We talked with a nice lady who showed us all the sights to see on a map and how to get there. She told us about a farmers market a couple blocks away so we started there. We found the best peaches I have ever had. They were as big as big apples and they were nice and ripe. They are so juicy and good. We also had to...

Aug 18, 2011 - Bald Eagle

We got left at 10:10. Our usual time. As we were driving, Carolyn made the comment that we had seen very little wildlife. It wasn’t too long before I spotted a bald eagle along the side the road in a field. There were 3 more with him, but without the white head. I think they might have been younger ones. We only got a quick glimpse of them. We were driving along the Skagit River. I found out it has one of the highest population of wintering bald eagles in the lower 48. They even have a Bald Eagle Festival in February. It was neat to be able...

Jul 25, 2010 - July in N Washington

Sunday, July 24, 3 pm PDT Bow, WA The last two weeks I’ve spent here in the Bow area, staying at Mt. Vernon RV Reserve about 50 miles south of the Canadian Border. Mt Vernon is another Thousand Trails park (where I “camp” with hookups for free). It has deciduous and Western Red Cedar trees throughout the park which prevent me from getting satellite TV, but at least I have a pretty good cell phone signal for my PC card. I’ll be here for 6 more days before moving to Thunderbird RV Reserve in Monroe WA, which is the closest Thousand Trails...

Jul 10, 2010 - Mt. Rainier - Paradise

Saturday, July 10, 10 pm PDT Bow, WA The last few weeks I’ve spent in the Mt. Rainier area, staying at Paradise RV Reserve. Paradise is a Thousand Trails park (where I “camp” with hookups for free). It has tall spruce trees throughout the park so that there is no way to get a satellite TV signal. So I’ve watched two Teaching Company courses on DVD in the mornings and evenings. On sunny days, I made 3 sortees into the National Park (50 miles away) and drove up to Seattle (140 miles away) to visit the Woodland Park Zoo with a friend of...
