Jul 7, 2017 - Olympic Peninsula

Touristy; organic; sustainable; artsy; liberal…. We are now in the Port Townsend/Chimacum, Washington area and these are some of the words that have been used to describe the area. Right now, we are staying at the Escapees Park in Chimacum but we’ll be flitting back and forth between this park and the Elks lodge in Port Townsend for most of July. Except for today, the weather has been exceptional – warm days and clear, sunny skies. Port Townsend is known for its summer-long music events. This week’s genre was fiddling, next week will be...

Aug 12, 2016 - Chimacum

We took the ferry out of Port Townsend this morning. It was the end of a five-night stay at Evergreen Coho RV Park in Chimacum, WA. It is an Escapee park that we visited two years ago. Escapee parks are always both nice and inexpensive though often not centrally located. But we enjoy Chimicum and especially enjoy nearby Port Townsend where there is a small independent movie theater, a neat waterfront, and several small shops and restaurants. When we arrived on Sunday we set up and then headed to the Chimicum Diner for dinner. Sue and I both...

Aug 10, 2016 - Olympic Peninsula

After leaving Boise last week, we left in 100 degree temps and traveled through eastern Oregon along I-84 which took us over the Blue Mountains and eventually along the Columbia River Gorge. It was quite the twisty turny road over the Mountains with several steep ups and downs. Knowing how much we hate the ups and downs, you can imagine how excited we were to finally be off the mountain! Besides the mountains, we passed miles of fields of grains and hay, most of which had already been harvested so all the fields were golden or brown. This...

Jun 7, 2016 - Puget Sound Finally!

May 27th was another moving day. We spent nine days on the Olympic Peninsula on the Puget Sound side. We were in Chimacum, WA at the Escapes Co-Op park called Evergreen Co-Ho. We stay there whenever we are in that area and really enjoy the park. The locals are friendly and there are always lots of things to see and do in and around that area. This is our third or fourth time to be in that area (can’t remember for sure) and we have seen lots of great sights but I never tire of riding around and seeing the bays and inlets as we travel. We...

May 30, 2016 - Special Edition from Another Perspective!

I was reading Karen and Rick’s blog the other night! Nighttime is the only time I can get onto the computer. Well, except the times it’s in the sun and I want to work on my tan! Anyway, I read that she was throwing shade at my expense. You know, when we only drove 5 miles to make a move from one campground to another. Yeah, that was nice but I NEVER said I could get used to that! The only thing I could get used to is if we stayed in one place forever! I hate that truck! It’s noisy (diesel engine) and it’s bumpy. I tried sitting on the back...

One of our highlights of our week in Chimacum was going kayaking with Brett and Sandie to Crescent Lake. The lake is 21 miles long and is an aqua color. Brett and Sandie bought inflatable boats as per my recommendation, so they were on their maiden voyage with them. We had a wonderful time together. It was such a beautiful day, that I had to jump out of my boat and take a swim, while Dan took a little break on the shore. The drive around the lake was awesome. The next day the 2 Sandie's and Joyce went to explore a couple of thrift shops. It...

Jul 29, 2015 - Chimacum, WA - Evergreen Co-ho SKP Park

7/29 - 7/30/15 (2 nights) We took the short drive ½ hour drive to Evergreen Co-ho SKP in Chimacum, WA. to meet up with Sandie & Dan and to check out another SKP park. Arrived at 11 am. Checked into the office and Nancy, the office manager, told us there was no full hook up site available. Met up with Sandie briefly while I was doing laundry. Their Alaska cruise went well. We agreed to meet up with them at 2 to go to the farmer’s market in Port Townsend and explore the area. We started at the ferry and then headed off to the farmer’s market...

Aug 29, 2014 - Evergreen Coho Escapee Park

This is one of our favorite places to stay in this part of the state. It's a beautiful little RV park and the price is right. We'll spend the Labor Day weekend here making sure our coughing has subsided before crossing over on the ferry in a few days to see Debbie. On Sunday, we attended a free concert by the Northwest Navy Band at Ft. Worden State Park. They did a great job and made us proud of those who serve our country to protect its many freedoms that we all take for granted. We spent the rest of the weekend riding our bikes, walking...

Aug 20, 2014 - More from the Peninsula

My goodness but things have really changed since I last wrote. We were getting ready to move to Long Beach and I mentioned the ‘cramp’ in my right shoulder. Well, just after that the pain intensified in the shoulder area and moved around to the right side of my chest! The drive to Long Beach on Thursday was agony! I wasn’t able to get comfortable in my seat and couldn’t rest my back on the seat. We arrived after three hours and Rick quickly got the rig set up and we then drove into Astoria to an urgent care clinic. The good news was it...

Aug 11, 2014 - Port Townsend

We seem to be spending a great deal of time in Port Townsend. Saturday afternoon was church time and the closest church was Saint Mary Star of the Sea in Port Townsend. We almost always have dinner at a restaurant after mass and this was no exception. After walking around a bit we settled on Sirens, a bar/restaurant on the waterfront. We enjoyed the eclectic menu and décor of Sirens and the view (although we moved inside for warmth) from their upstairs location on the water. We were particularly taken with one piece of the décor that...

Aug 8, 2014 - Chimacum

Yesterday we drove north from Gig Harbor on the Olympic Peninsula past the Naval Museum in Bremerton, and over the floating bridge across the Hood Canal to the small town of Chimacum and the SKP Evergreen Coho Campground. Unlike most Escapee campgrounds this one has separate sites for visitors. It’s OK but the sites are gravel and in a parking lot arrangement. Not to far from Chimacum is the delightful little town of Port Townsend. It was there that we went to celebrate Sue’s birthday. We found a restaurant in the Belmont Hotel that had a...

We spent two weeks including Memorial Weekend at Evergreen Coho Escapees park. This is an Escapees membership park in Chimacum, WA. (Located a few miles south of Port Townsend, WA) The park is quite adequate, but the layout is like a parking lot. The Wifi only worked in the Club House. They had a wonderful dog park. It must have been about an acre of grass and trees with lots of doggy fellowship going on. I enjoyed the quiet laid back atmosphere. With a cost of only $17.50 a night for members, it was a great deal. We had full hookups and...
