When you think of Island living most folks imagine long days lounging in a hammock, swinging on a soft breeze and napping to the sound of the ocean. The San Juan’s are a little different than most Islands, being much more active and raw than the tropics, but if you wanted to get closer to that lounging ideal, Lopez [...]
We’re having our first day of rain in a month. Quite a big deal considering we’ve been travelling one of the moistest parts of the country. This means time in-doors with the heater on, fresh-baked gluten-free blueberry scones (my first attempt & I can happily say it ROCKED) paired with fresh-brewed coffee. For the latter we’ve just [...]
What is it about the San Juan Islands that is so enticing?
Is it the fact that there are so many of them? Around 170 actual islands, with numbers upwards of 400 if you count all the rocks and odd bits that stick up.
Is it that they bridge the sea between Canada & Washington? Travelling [...]
It would be easy to imagine yourself at the end of the world. The fog is so heavy it rains a stream of constant moisture on your face, the waves so wild they crash dangerously on the rocks below and the shoreline so untamed it makes you gasp just to stand on the edge. We’ve made [...]
I was fully prepared not to like this place. This wasn’t because of the beaches mind you (everybody raves about those), but because of everything else I’d read. The reviews of La Push, both the town and the RV park were literally all over the place. I’d seen descriptions of “dump”, “viscous loose dogs everywhere”, “sad place” and no end [...]
Our morning starts in dense fog so heavy with moisture it casts a stream of droplets on the side of the RV. We can hear the roar of the ocean in the background, but our view is dark & eerily muted nestled as we are deep in the trees. Moss hangs all around us like the long beards [...]
We’re winding down to the last day of the July 4th holiday madness at our current “home” in the bustling harbor of Westport, WA. It’s been both great and somewhat trying at the same time. For the first time in a long time the best of my RV campground planning intentions didn’t pan out. What [...]
She was one-of-a-kind, built by Howard Hughes, a genius (a madman?) in the service of war. She was also big, the largest aircraft ever built for her time (1947). Her tail stands 79.1ft (24.1m) tall, the size of an eight-story building, her length spans a substantial 219 ft (66.6m) and her wings a jaw-dropping 320 feet (97.5m), [...]
The first “incident” happened after our hike at Smith Rock State Park. We were happily driving back to the rig, enjoying the fresh air and relaxing feel of a good workout when the car wheel turned on its own. No warning at all…just a random jerk to the right as we passed the Bendistillery. Huh? Finding ourselves suddenly [...]
We’re rolling north, towards the mountains and pine tress, on the road to green grass and lush meadows. We’re on one of our absolute favorite highways Hwy 395, but we’re driving it further north than we’ve ever been. As we motor down the relaxing 2-lane road and pass into California we see the landscape change -> spatterings [...]
