Shakin' the Jello, Crescent Bar RV Resort - Quincy, WA - May 30, 2017

Donna is finaly getting over the cold she has been dealing with for the last two weeks. I've taken her to the doctor in East wenatchee twice now to get some good meds. It was an upper respiratory infection, but a nasty one. Glad it is behind us.

Our daughter, Kim, and her boyfriend Chris came to visit us here in Crescent Bar. This is the first time we have met him.

He is a great guy. Kim is happy... and so are we.

Memorial Day came and went. This place got a little crazy. The park was packed. The weather was great too. Besides the RVs, there were lots of boats, jet skis, and other water toys all over the park.

On the Friday of the big weekend, one of the working couples at the park up and quit! That's not good! So Donna volunteered to step up and help out. She was greeting the folks coming in and checking RVs in.

She said she kinda misses the work......hmmmm...

Crescent Bar renovation is coming along pretty good too. The new boat launch was open for the holidays, and next month, the new campground and walking/biking trail should be done. Here is some of the pictures I took of the progress.

The new trail goes right through the golf course.

It is almost all paved now.

The new campground.

Besides the great weather we have been having here, in the evening, the sun turns the mountainside in front of us golden!

These basalt cliffs that run along the Columbia River are reportably the 2nd largest edge of a lava flow in the world. The largest being the entire tip of India. They sure light up.

Now the Jello part.

As everyone knows, an RVers plans are set in Jello because just a little shakin' will cause things to change.
I guess we will be here for a while. Donna is working here again.

The managers here, Bev & Tim, are the greatest and I am proud that Donna is helping them out this season. I am not working this year (whew...) and will help her out when ever she needs it. We still plan on heading south around August 21st.

Looking forward to our trip south this year. Lots of National Parks, and the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta are in our future.

Fergs .... out!

Review - Crescent Bar RV Resort - Quincy, WA - May 15 - May 31, 2017

This Thousand Trails park is located just off Highway 28, between East Wenatchee and Quincy. 23 miles from East Wenatchee, and 7 miles from Quincy, the park is located on Crescent Bar, along the Columbia River.

Crescent Bar Road is the turn off from Highway 28. It winds down a pretty steep hill towards the river. Great views here.

As you level out at the bottom of the hill, the entrance is just pass some condos and accross the street from a little golf course. It is a right turn.

The Welcome Center, where you check in at.

As you pass by the Welcome Center, immediately left is two roads in the upper area with camping spots.

Only three 50 amp spots in this area. There are 100 RV sites in the park. All spots in the park are full hookup except 2 without sewer, and 5 tent spots.

Continuing straight from the Welcome Center, you pass the pool area, where toads can unhook.

The pool.

There are some cabins on your right.

Going towards the river, there is Park Road and River Road. River Road is right along the river. Between the two roads is the Hot Tub, rest rooms, laundry and sports courts.

The turn onto Park Road.

The restrooms/hot tub area.

At the bottom of the entrance road, and and just before you turn on to River Road, is the Lodge, with patio and gazebo.

From the lodge area and all along River Road, there are great views of the Columbia River.

Along River Road, there are 20 spaces with 50 amp hookups. There are several annual leased sites here, but many available for the public too.

The tent sites are along here also.

More shots. Several annuals here.

Park Road.

This area is the upper area. This area overlooks a playground and the pool area.
A few spots along Crescent Bar Road are the shortest and noisest, no shade either. These aren't taken very often.

Our spot.

There is good Verizon service here. This is one of the best parks around. Good location, sunny, with the water nearby. Our favorite park.

At Home, Crescent Bar RV Resort - Quincy, WA - May 19, 2017

Just before we left the Thunderbird, Donna felt like she was coming down with a cold. Yep... a doosy too! After a night of cough, cough, cough, like a trooper she is, she helped get all packed up for our move over the mountains into central washington.

Just 130 miles later, we arrived back in Crescent Bar Thousand Trails RV Resort, the one we work kamped all last summer. We even got set up in the same parking spot we were in last year.

It was real nice to see our old bosses, Bev & Tim. And co workers from last year Kerry & David too! They made us feel right at home. Even tho Donna was still not feeling too good and we had to cut our visiting into short visits. We met the new workers here also. A great bunch of workers this year. And no, we are not working this year.

I did take Donna to a walk in clinic in East Wenatchee. Her lungs looked good and they said she was on the mend. She did get some codeine type cough syrup because she still coughs a lot, especially at night.

I have been doing a lot of walking here, getting my 10K steps per day. I do my road walking,

and soon will be doing the new walking/biking path they are building here on the Bar. There is a lot of construction happening on the Bar as the PUD is building a new campground and park (with the new trail system) along the Columbia River.

We will be here through Memorial Day. Hoping Donna gets well soon so she can get out there with me and enjoy some of the beautiful weather we have been having.
