We are here in Pacific Beach, Washington. We made the three hour drive from Tacoma and it was an easy travel day on Tuesday after the 4th of July.
Over the last couple of months we have seen some random and interesting things I thought I share with you.
A couple of days ago we had some excitement with the awful sound of ripping metal. It leaves you sick in your stomach when you hear it, even if it is not your rig.
We were in the Roadrunner and watched a 5th wheel depart the campground in front of our campsite. Only he made a turn that was too tight. Ugh! He stopped pretty quickly but then misjudged things more and tried to drive straight on and get by the corner of the roof he just snagged with his 5th wheel.
This douglas fir near Mt Rainier is pegged at starting to grow in 1293. That is a lot of years ago.
During our day trip to Seattle, we saw a lot of street vendors, including one that was selling these two paintings:
Recently, sometimes neighbors we hardly know were very generous. Dave drove in the campsite next to us and he asked if we liked crab. I almost said 'no' because my experience has been it usually is a lot of work for little satisfaction. But I said yes and he gave us two large halves to work with.
Turns out he had been crabbing earlier in the day, caught his limit of 'indigenous' crab, and let us have two large halves.
I have often said there are many ways to do this RV thing. In Idaho we saw a couple in a campsite next to us who had a unique arrangement. They pulled a little trailer that was the size of a pickup. It had two side walls that folded out for beds on each side.
Back in New Mexico, we took a day trip to Bandelier National Monument near where the recent forest fires have been in Los Alamos.
Now we are here
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Hope you are having a great summer!
