Bothell, Washington

It was a beautiful day in the Seattle area today, Mt. Rainier was splendid all snow covered, the sun was shining and all the flowers and trees are blooming. We left Montana Friday morning and arrived in Spokane before 4pm. It was so good to see Mary and Gene--we all went out to dinner and had a great time catching up. Sadie and Jazz behaved themselves (mostly Sadie just ignores Jazz).

Yesterday morning we had coffee and breakfast with them before heading out for Seattle. We made good time with a tail wind and arrived at this beautiful little RV park, Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell, a suburb of Seattle. The park sits around a couple of small lakes and there are hiking trails around the upper perimeter of the park. The sites are tight but a planting of evergreens between each site helps maintain privacy. It is quiet without obtrusive lighting. Who would have ever thought such a little oasis would exist in busy Seattle. It is expensive, $44 per night!!

Today we looked at motorhomes without success! Michael had noticed a classic motorhome listed on CraigsList, a GMC motorhome. They were built from 1973-1978 and only about 13,00 were made--9000-10000 of those are still on the road. They have developed kind of a following and people buy them and remodel the interiors. We looked at a trashed one and an absolutely gorgeous lemon yellow one that had been lovingly restored. While beautiful, I'm not sure that is where we should be going. Oh, well, the fun is in the looking isn't it??? We have not found ONE decent diesel pusher in our price range.
Tomorrow we may look for motorhomes and then again, we may give up and go to La Connor and see the tulip fields!
