8/5/15 Wednesday in Leavenworth, WA (Leavenworth Resort-TT)
It was so good to be home. We were really busy getting ourselves checked out (our bodies are in fine shape-all systems go) and the car and coach spiffed up, including wash and wax. We even washed our vinyl sided house. This on top of enjoying/watching our 2 adorable grandchildren pretty much every day except for the week we went camping in Canada with our local FMCA chapter.

We even managed lots of visiting with friends, relatives and co-workers. Whew! I’m ready to go camping for some rest. We delayed leaving Spokane to time our reunion with John’s family better.
This long blog break got me to thinking I might change from my daily posts. The purpose was to give a good idea of how daily life on the road is – not all vacation. But it’s a lot of reading for people involved in so much in their own lives. Weekly posts could give some of the same sense of daily life, with less verbiage. Plus I could post special places/experiences in addition.
Today was a 230 mile trip-not our favorite kind. About 2/3rds of the way is freeway. We left at 8:20, stopping to visit our Florida friends near the Crescent Bar Thousand Trails Resort. We arrived at 1:40. It took over an hour to find a spot (no sewer or TV, even local) buried in trees. Verizon cell phone service is weak, so our Internet is also limited. Hey, we’re really camping here, not just Rving as John likes to say. We walked to the lodge after supper to watch TV and play cards.
Some photos of our trip through Central Washington State-dry is normal in the summer, but this has been a particularly hot one with little snow pack from the past winter.

Our grandchildren Lily and Gabe. We said our goodbyes in Spokane yet we’ll soon say our hellos here Friday at Leavenworth Resort (TT campground).
