Traffic sucks, but that campground at the end of the day feels so good.

I felt like I had reached a safe haven last night, just as dark fell, after the trauma of heavy traffic the entire day.

Reminds me of why I prefer the secondary roads.

Park staff did knock on my door fairly late, I promised I would pay up in the morning and they were fine with that.

Hugs and love from the Oregon Coast!!! there are several places to park/RV around Tillamook...Bay City has a tiny RV park.. the city park, actually... a few sites and fewer w/hook-ups... but there's a creek!!! and it's really cute...

Paid up, dumped my tanks, and added a bit of fresh water this morning before heading into Anacortes town for a specialty coffee....really exceptional coffee is everywhere out here.

I indulged in some fresh ground beans at the grocer yesterday....when it's how one starts every single day, good coffee is important.

Also found the post office and dropped off post cards so the grands can track Grandma's travels. Had a Skype message from Emma the other day...I love you and miss you, you are SO far away.

The leaves are already starting to turn out here, and it is currently 57 degrees.

My kind of weather.

I am first in line at the ferry terminal.

Going to walk Lily and do a little tidying while I wait.

We'll see how she does with the ferry ride.

She's been prone to motion sickness this trip.

Lily tolerated the ferry ride well, and made some new friends....an au pair from Germany, and one of her charges.

I love when you can sit down and talk with people you haven't seen in years, like you just saw them last week.

Carroll and Paula have a beautiful place here, and have esconced me in the guest house.

A real bed and bathroom, and full kitchen. I have a loaf of DO bread rising to bake for them tomorrow.

Lily gets to run free...no natural predators to worry about.

Going to be a nice couple of days.

I haven't heard from Evelyn since this morning.

She had a route plotted out to get her to Astoria today, and hopefully avoid some of that crazy traffic.

I had an email from Evelyn in my inbox this morning, she arrived at Fort Stevens without incident but had poor signal.

I baked a loaf of bread this morning, then we took off for a tour of the island and a good hike at Obstruction Pass Park.

A beautiful island, and much loved by these Texas transplants.

Have decided to take the ferry from Coupeville to Port Townsend tomorrow, and go down that way to avoid traffic.

Having a great visit.


Maggie

good, glad to know Evelyn arrived safely.... Port Townsend is a nice town to visit.... going down hwy 101 is a lovely drive.... hwy runs along the Hood Canal... there's a place to stop, RV park, on the right side of the hwy... and I can't remember the name??? one part is right on the canal, the part on the other side (of the hwy) is more like forest... I remember it's about 80 miles south of Port Angles... I'll look around and see if I can find the name... ok, everyone keep having fun!!!! gail

I'm going to head for a Walmart tomorrow night, afraid I will be driving in the dark into Puyallup, and I don't want to do that, so will go in there Sunday morning.

It cleared off today, had some sunshine this afternoon and beautiful view of the harbor from their house...

Coupeville---where Practical Magic was filmed! Ah! Too bad that house was simply a facade and not a real structure. Post pictures of the downtown, which was painted for the movie, but must have been returned to whatever the owners wanted..?

Susan

Have fun!!

I'll try to remember to take a picture of Coupeville when I pass thru.

This has been a lovely side trip.
