Dec 2, 2014 - John Wayne Waterfront Resort - fall of 2014

Well, Fall (maybe winter) is here at John Wayne Waterfront Resort. October was a little rainy, then November started out pretty good. Sunshine and mild weather. Then along came November 26th. We had a beautiful sunset. You know the saying "red at night a sailors delight". Well, forget that. The next evening, Nov. 27th it started raining. It rained all night and the next morning also. It rained so hard that the staff was out all morning digging trenches and trying to divert water which was flooding some sites, mine included. They were...

Aug 25, 2014 - A beautiful day for a drive around the Olympic Peninsula

This morning we put things together for travel. We were reluctant to leave, but anxious to get back on the power and water grid. We stopped by the Kalaloch Campground, 3 miles north to empty waste and take on fresh water. The drive north on 101 around the Olympic Peninsula is beautiful, particularly Lake Crescent. The lake colors are similar to Lake Tahoe and the setting is National Park beautiful. Upon our arrival in Sequim, we checked into the Elks Lodge Campground and found our friends Jeff and Margaret, fellow friends and full time...

One of the campers here (with a large Class A motorhome pulled along side one of their rental cabins so the family that...

Jun 27, 2014 - Back to the US again

Up early this morning to get ready to return back to the United States. We went down to the restaurant to grab a quick breakfast and then back to the room to finish packing. We had to be at the ferry terminal by 9 AM for the 10:30 ferry and got there a little early. After purchasing our fare, we had to get lined up and after a little time the Canadian Border patrol came by asking us questions and checking our passports. Then they said that we had to go over to this building where we had to go through US customs check. Then back to the car...

Jun 24, 2014 - Going to Sequim

Today is a traveling day so we were up early and heading out to Sequim (sounds like swim except with a q instead of a w) with an easy 2 hour drive. They had the open space so we were able to check in early and get settled and still had most of the day left. So we jumped in the car and headed off to Port Townsend. The town is fairly old and has been kept in good shape. Most of the business is geared toward the tourist so not a whole lot of interesting things there. But just outside of town was an old army post, Ft Worden, that was one of the...

Jun 14, 2014 - 2014-Washington Part 1

Here we are again, this time in southern Washington. We were in Bay Center for 5 days, a tiny fishing village on the Willapa River. Again, beautiful, rainy, green, very cool weather. We visited Cape Disappointment and toured the North Head Lighthouse, very interesting. It is still in service but is unmanned as are most nowadays. We have toured most of the towns in this area, from Raymond in the north to Ilwaco in the south. All are charming and have great local eateries! We really hit the jackpot in Raymond, seeing two excellent museums in...

Aug 19, 2013 - Back to the USA

Friday, August 16th In the morning we continued south making stops in Quesnel where we went through the museum and saw some of the little people painted on fire hydrants around town, Williams Lake (great visiter center), at 100 Mile House we walked along the river park looking at the mining relics, and Cache Creek with the visiter center decorated like an old time malt shop. I had forgotten how much Cache Creek looks just like Arizona, arid and dry with sage brush everywhere. We stayed at an excellent campsite on the Thompson River at the...

Aug 13, 2013 - Sequim, WA - Gilgal Oasis RV Park

Our trip from Forks to Sequim, WA was a leisurely 75 miles along the top of the Olympic Peninsula with a good bit of it beside Lake Crescent which is a gorgeous lake. The roads were good and the traffic wasn't too bad so we just enjoyed the ride aboard the Mothership. We are staying at the Gilgal Oasis RV Park which is almost downtown Sequim (pronounced skwim). We have a very nice 50 amp, full hookup, pull-through with enough room to park Libby in front of us. We have great Verizon and a clear shot to the satellite. The campground has WiFi...

Jul 14, 2013 - Mt St Helens and the move to Sequim Washinton

Today we were up at 6 am and Rapid Robert (being me) went out side and started putting everything together to depart the campsite we were at. Poor Jerry just looks at me and sighs lol. Just teasing Jerry :-).... On a bright note a Momma Chick-a-dee built a nest next to our trailer and two of her babies hatched last night so we were able to see them just before we left. We hope the best for momma and her babies. Jerry and Diane are good traveling partners, it sure would be nice if they were doing this whole trip with us but their new home in...

Jul 12, 2013 - Diamond Point RV Park

During our 2 week stay in the Seattle area, we of course did a lot of visiting with family. Most of that time, Bev was helping her sister Debbie with the adjustments of moving into an assisted living facility. The time was well spent and filled with all kinds of emotions and the stress of adjusting to the things that happen in life. As of this writing, I am 2 weeks behind the entry date. With all of these family issues, the urge to write has greatly diminished. Bev and I have done a great deal of reflection and of course the daily stress of...

May 16, 2013 - Northeast Olympic Peninsula

Days 72-73 of The Big Trip It rained for the fourth day in a row, but it was time to move to the next destination. Leaving Forks, we drove north and took the northernmost highway, which ran along the edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To get there, we drove through a winding, forested road. When we got to the coast, we only saw glimpses of water through trees, with an occasional break in the forest. In one of the visitors centers, we had seen a topographical map of the Olympic Peninsula. Looking at it, we were expecting some flatness along...

May 15, 2013 - Sequim, Washington

We spent two weeks at Diamond Point RV Resort, our membership park about 15 miles southeast of Sequim, on the Olympic Peninsula. The RV park is in the small community of Diamond Point that has a private airport and beautiful views of Mount Baker and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Since that area is in the “rain shadow” of the Olympic Mountains, it only gets about 17 inches of rain a year, although it still has plenty of clouds, fog, and cold weather. The weather was lovely much of the time we were there, so we were able to enjoy many long...
