Feb 12, 2020 - Fun With Rhonda

We had a wonderful visit with Rhonda, she flew into Seattle and drove to Sequim and arrived yesterday around 3 P.M. We only had a few hours of daylight so we showed her the John Wayne Marina and some of the areas in downtown Sequim. We were up early the next day and on the road to show her the Salt Creek Recreation Area and Crescent Beach, one of my favorite beaches in the area. We would love to camp there but it is way above our budget. Salt Creek is awesome for camping too, but they only allow two weeks and the Wi-Fi doesn’t work well...

Jan 15, 2020 - Snow In Sequim

Anyone who knows me well knows that I LOVE the snow. We had an awesome week in Sequim this week. We had one day with flurries, the next day we got about three inches and the next day about six more. It was incredible watching it all comedown, it was a winter wonderland. Not sure when we will get another one like this, it doesn’t happen here often. It was amazing to watch our two Anna’s Hummingbirds. They stay here in Washington year-round. According to the Washing Audubon, we have about 68 of them here in Sequim. We are very pleased to have...

Dec 27, 2019 - Olympic Game Farm

We visited the Olympic Game Farm today with Kim. We all had a ball. You pay $14 each for a pass for the day. We thought about riding through again but it was too late to do it again. They sell you whole wheat bread at the gate. You are allowed to feed only the animals that are loose or the bears that ask for food. We had one cool bear that ate the bread and then raised his hand when he wanted another piece. He was so cool! We had so many animals coming to the car for food, we gave out after feeding them two full loaves of bread and needed...

Dec 25, 2019 - Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all our family and friends and a Verry Happy New Year! We picked Kim up at the airport early this morning and drove back to Sequim, Washington. She will be staying with us for a few days. We searched to see what restaurants in the area were open for Christmas dinner, we decided on the Black Bear Diner. I had the prime rib dinner, Kim had a steak and Jerry had the ham dinner with all the normal Christmas fixing. We had a wonderful Christmas. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our journal readers!

Nov 30, 2019 - Sequim Tree Lighting

We had a wonderful day in Sequim today. We went to the Christmas Tree Lighting and listened to Christmas music and watched all the kids dancing to Jingle Bells and more. We were there a bit early so we went and had pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Clause before walking around the block and doing a bit of shopping. :-) I love all the lavender gift shops in Sequim, they are known for all the lavender farms in the area. I bought some awesome lavender perfume for only $7 on sale for the holidays. We stopped at the Hurricane Coffee shop for...

Nov 4, 2019 - Elk & Audubon

We had a full day today. We decided to go looking for the elk herd that lives in Sequim, Washington. We drove all the back roads looking for them, we didn’t have any luck, but we did see a lot of beautiful areas on the drive. After looking for the elk we decided to visit the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park. The Dungeness River Audubon Center was the first Audubon center in Washington State. It is the only Audubon center with a Native American tribe as a partner and the only center located by a salmon-spawning river....

Oct 23, 2019 - John Wayne Marina

We visited one of our favorite places in Sequim today, the John Wayne Marina. We love to sit and watch the birds. We have done a couple of geocaches here and love to just walk and enjoy the beauty of the water and the blazing trees. It is also perfect for picnics. John Wayne Marina was constructed in 1985 on 22 acres of land donated by the John Wayne family. John Wayne frequented Sequim Bay waters aboard the family yacht (the “Wild Goose”) and envisioned a marina in the scenic bay prior to his death. Eventually, this vision became a...

Oct 14, 2019 - Back on the Bay

We were packed and ready to roll early this morning. We drove to Coupeville to catch the ferry over to Port Townsend, Washington. We passed a lot of pumpkin farms on the drive, they were amazing. Our ferry appointment was not until 2 but we arrived at noon and they put us right on first. Our view of the water was amazing. We went inside the ferry to get a cup of coffee and took the binoculars to sit and watch the water as we crossed. We decided to go back to our RV, it had the best view. :-) It was about a 45-minute ride and were drove off...

May 29, 2019 - Sequim WA

Sequim WA Day 13: Tuesday May 28, 2019 We left the RV Park at 10:00 am and stopped to fuel at the Pilot Truck Stop located at the I-5 freeway exit/entry. We could have fueled when we exited to our RV park yesterday—and should have—the big trucks were backed up at the north bound exit and across the freeway overpass from the south bound exit this morning (Brian usually fuels at the big truck pumps because it is faster and they offer DEF at the pump). We turned into the car section (which was also crowed) and had to maneuver to get access to...

Sep 20, 2018 - Dungeness Spit

2018-09-20.Dungeness Spit It was a cloudy day today so we went to the Dungeness Spit Recreation Area. The "Spit" is a 5-6 mile long sand bar that curves in a big arc from the coast near Dungeness, Washington into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From high atop the Olympic Mountains, you could clearly see the Spit's curvature with its iconic lighthouse at the end. Since the Spit area is a National Wildlife Refuge, we couldn't take Roadie and it was too warm to leave him in the car so we walked the trails of the Recreation Area instead, high above...

Sep 19, 2018 - Ferry, the Bunneys, Olympic National Park

2018-09-20 - Sequim and Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park We reluctantly left Orcas Island and sailed back to the mainland where we boarded another ferry in Coupeville to take us to Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Mission accomplished!! It was a beautiful day and we could see the snow-coned Mt. Baker dominating the skyline across the water. We drove along Rt. 101 to the lovely town of Sequim, Washington. There, we were the guests of Graham and Carin Bunney at their beautiful estate on Gaskell Farm Road in the middle of a lush...

Jul 10, 2018 - Sequim

/// Tuesday - July 10, 2018 A Travel Day: Today we make another short haul of 150 miles north on Hwy 101. As I was working my way through our departure routine I discovered that the rear under bumper storage compartment drawer would not close. I fussed with the damn thing for about an hour before giving up and just wired the drawer closed best I could. We finally departed Hoquiam by 10:00 A.M. Our route today would eventually take us further north on Hwy 101. The first part of todays journey was quite pleasant on a divided highway....
