Tootling around Whidbey

DSC00231 The little port towns are so cute, this is Coupeville and Joe is explaining things to Jerry that he should know.


We also learned that there are huge tide changes in this part of the country.


We also learned that there is a lot of fog and mist here with limited sunshine and cool temps.  Some days I think we actually started growing moss!

DSC00251   This is The Lavender Farm in the fog, smelled good just foggy.                DSC00254                                            

The next stop was at Deception Pass… the fog.


Boaters in the… guessed it FOG.

On to Port Townsend, Washington

DSC00214We spent 2 nights at the Elk’s Lodge in Port Townsend.  We spent some time looking around the the area at some of the old buildings in the area. 


We are headed to Whidbey Island, Wa. to visit with Mr. Spiker for a few days, in fact we sort of turned his driveway into a rv park.  Jeri and Terri meet us in Port Townsend and we all took the ferry across to Joe’s place.

DSC00216  Here’s the ferry waiting on us to board.

DSC00225And here’s Joe’s Rv park. (see Jeri supervising) hee, hee.  We made ourselves at home and Joe and Bandit entertained us.  We all had a great time visiting and eating.

Seaside, Oregon

Moving on up the coast of Oregon we stopped for a couple of nights in Seaside.  It’s a cute little beach town .

DSC00099This was part of a old ship still intact on the beach. 

Moving on we stopped inland at Kelso Elk’s rv park, of course we meet back up with the Williams there for more tour info.  Our location put us in between the Columbia River Gorge and Mt Saint Helens.DSC00111DSC00130

The Gorge was a waterfall heaven and most are right on the main road.

DSC00179And finally the awesome view of Mt. Saint Helen 30 yrs after it first exploded destroying everything in its path for 17 miles.

And last, Bigfoot does exsist…..I just wanted his autograph!!

We have been on the coast for 2 weeks.  We meet Jerri and Terry in Rockaway Beach for a week of fun and sun and crabbing and boating and eating.  Had a great time with them, Terry brought his boat down and took us crabbing, that’s not something we do much of in Tn.paradise cove, or 003 paradise cove, or 013
