After a nice 120 mile drive, we arrived at the Thousand Trails campground in Florence, OR. It is amazing that we haven't been rained on since we left Arizona. And the Oregon coast here is beautiful.
We got set up
and headed over to Donna's brother Gene's house. On the 3 days we spent with Gene, we had lunch downtown in the historic district at the Beachcomber Pub. My fish tacos weren't that great, but the beer was! The next day, we treated Gene to clam chowder at Mo's.
Always a great place to eat. Later we hit Surfside on the beach.
We really enjoy hanging out on the beach.
After saying our 'goodbyes', we headed north 200 miles and checked into the Vancouver Elks. We got 30 Amp and water for just $20.00 a night.
We were just going to do 1 night here though. Our oldest daughter Candy came over, spent the night,
and the next day, we all headed out for a long drive to Spokane. Interstate 84, to 82, and on to 90, 340 miles. A long day for us. We arrived at the Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in Cheney, WA. We hadn't been here since our youngest daughter Kim was going to Eastern Washington University 5 years ago.
This is a nice RPI park. Full hookups for #28.69 for 2 nights.
We are here because Candy's eldest son, Erik, and his girlfriend Elizabeth live in nearby Coeur d'Alene, ID and her other son, Chase, who is home on leave from the Marines, is visiting also. So our 2 grandsons, and Elizabeth, cane to our place to visit and have dinner with Candy and us. We had a great time.
The next day, Donna and I headed into Coeur d'Alene, to Erik & Elizabeth's house, where Chase and Candy are staying. We all went down to the lake and did the Tubb's Hill hiking trail. It was such a pretty area, and the weather couldn't have been better.
It was a great visit. And today, the 9th, Donna and I headed west another 140 miles to our old stomping grounds, Crescent Bar Thousand Trails RV Resort where we worked the last 2 years.
We are just going to be here 2 nights and then we will head further west and see more family.
And Donna recieved another call from the Beet people. It seems she will be camp hosting at a campground in Warren, MN while I work the beet harvest in Crookston, MN. Looking forward to the experience.
Fergs .... out!
