Sep 16, 2020 - Ferry Rides to Southworth

Manchester State Park September 15, 2020 If our original itinerary had happened, we’d have been at Icicle Creek RV Park near Leavenworth on this day. Instead, we drove from Larrabee State Park, going back through Burlington for the fourth time on this trip, and got onto I-5. In Seattle, while crossing Lake Union on the Ship Canal bridge, we were unable to see lake beneath us. Of course, the smoke obliterated any view we might have had of the Seattle skyline and the iconic Space Needle. We could have taken I-5 through Tacoma and gone north...

May 5, 2009 - Our Puget Sound Sightseeing Pix

Custer finally got his own volunteer vest. We had beautiful spring weather after the rains stopped. As you can see by the pictures some beautiful spring blooms came out.

Mar 16, 2009 - The end of our stay at Seaquest and moving to Manchester

Feburary ended pretty nice at Seaquest. We moved from the camploop to the yurt village in Mid-February to be the "yurt hosts" as the yurts were going to be busy thru the end of the month. Our site was across from the "yurt village," and we were now considered the yurt hosts. The yurts were going to be busy the rest of Feburary and the Park Manager wanted us closer so yurt guests had better access to a host. A yurt is a round tent with cabin like features. Each day we had a pair of black tail deer come grazing into the playfield. They...
