Traveling North in The RV
Hello from Vancouver, WA. We have been here for 3 days, visiting Lee & Susie Blattner, and doing some RV fixes and chores. Lee & Susie fixed a nice dinner for us the first day and have been over here a couple of times too. It has been fun catching up on the events and playing cards with them. They arranged for us to stay at their neighbor’s lot across the street from them, and there are so many trees here, it is like camping in a forest. Of course, this being part of the Northwest, it rained the first 2 days we were here. Happily, today there is some sun, and we will be going out for our second walk very soon. Today some Boomer friends, Diane & Frank Gruelle, will be coming over for Happy Hour. On our way here, we spent the Memorial Day weekend in Sacramento, staying on Ron & Carol Leonard’s property. Had some nice social interactions with them, including a birthday party for their cute little 6 year old granddaughter, Jessie. Here is a picture of them with their son, Scott, and his daughter, Jessie at her birthday party: Memorial day we had a rib dinner at Carol & Ron’s and were glad that Boomer friends Laurie and Odel could drive down from their place in the foothills near Placerville. They sold their RV, now that they have their new mobile home, and they have to stay put to take care of elderly relatives. On the way to Oregon, we stopped to take this picture of Mt. Shasta: The entire drive was just lovely, and a beautiful temperature. Tomorrow we are going to drive up to Castle Rock where Mike & Marilyn Harrison are visiting their son & his family. We will stay there a couple of days before heading for the SKP Park at Chimicum. Next weekend we are driving our car over to Seattle, staying with Terry & Vicki Webb, and attending the college graduation of my granddaughter, Paige. My daughter, Laura, her fiancée, Dennis, and Paige’s father, Dino, will all be staying with Paige & Allison. So Friday and Saturday there will be get-together dinners and family fun. Paige had to have an emergency appendectomy last week, so hopefully she will be feeling OK for all these events. I have started going through all the pictures from our February trip to Myanmar. In a few days I hope to be able to post a blog about it, because it was such an interesting place to visit.
