We had a beautiful and uneventful drive from Puyallup to Fort Stevens, and are now settled into our site.

Sloughs out here remind me of the SC LowCountry.

Stopped for fresh things at the beautiful Fred Meyer store near here, which may be the biggest store I have ever been in...so big it has an entrance at one side for groceries and another at the other side for everything else.

I think it covers at least a full city block.

Evelyn is here somewhere, but must be out and about, Gail will be here in the morning, and other Forums folks are coming by in the afternoon.

Have a service appointment scheduled for next week at the MB dealership in Eugene....because I have to see Eugene, anyway ...and they will let me overnight in their lot for an early am appointment.

A tire rotation yet to be scheduled.

This is my friend, with Lily, by the Interstate, parked in the mini redwood forest, in Puyallup.

Had a great visit with them.

All is well.


Maggie

Evelyn got back about 7:15 last night, having been out shopping...buying wine ...and gallivanting around the area.

She has really gotten her sea legs, is tanned from walking the beaches, and I'm very proud of her.

Nearly 78, driven all these miles in her sparkling new Interstate, seen a part of the country she always wanted to see...and having herself a blast.

Here's to Evelyn, to living life to the fullest, and new adventures at any age!

We've had a great day.

Gail arrived this morning, and I have met for the first time this lovely, warm, good hearted woman who has been so supportive and wonderful to me these past couple of years.

I feel like I have known her all my life.

She, Evelyn and I went to the BowPicker for fish and chips...a local institution, the fish being fried, fresh tuna. Delicious.

After a beach run for Lily, we returned to the campground to find Maggie and Dan had arrived, fixed some dinner, drank some wine, and had a campfire.

Had a few Forums visitors, and some admirers of our rigs.

Lots of talking going on...we all seem kindred spirits, come together in Oregon...just because we can.

Yes indeed, it's awesome when people come together with their Airstreams to visit, just because they can. 😎

Enjoyed meeting you and your wife, Bill.

We'll be gathered at L10 again tomorrow late day, bring chairs and join us if you like.

Sounds like fun! We'll share details on what birds we saw, if any, on the morning bird walk. What a great state park, kudos to Oregon for much nicer state parks than WA.

Hmm, I haven't seen them yet, but if they are with us they have not made their presence known.

I will go by and invite them to join us if they like.

The two Airstreams on the other side of this loop are not with us...they are from Tennessee, traveling together, and in Oregon for the first time.

They have been invited to bring a chair and join us whenever it suits them.

They are relatively new to Airstreaming, and not on AirForums, but we will I'm sure tell them all about this wonderful community.

We've had a great day here in Oregon.

Evelyn and I and the other Maggie took a hike to the beach and back...Lily loves to run on the beach ...then we went out to lunch and to pick up a few things from Fred Meyer.

Because...

Gail has a bumper crop of Asian pears from her own tree, and we're going to make Ginger Pear Freezer Jam tomorrow.

Everyone can then take a jar home, and a pile of these luscious pears will have been used up.

It will only take an hour or so, still need to get to the Lewis & Clark Museum, and then Mimi arrives tomorrow.

Bill & Susan brought their chairs and joined us for a campfire this evening.... we come from different parts of the country and walks of life, so different perspectives shared on most everything we talked about.

A nice group, as most always seems to be the case.

Lily is crashed, and I will soon join her.


Maggie

A warm and sunny day here...my dish towels almost dried outside today.

Made pear jam, visited the Lewis & Clark Museum and had a campfire, joined again by Bill & Susan.

Tomorrow...the Tillamook Factory and Rockaway Beach.

I'm not much for pictures of myself, but Maggie Haynes got this of Lily and I on the beach here at Fort Stevens, and it is pretty representative of me at this point in my life...so thought I would share.

We have a group of good-hearted people here. I like.

Maggie
