Sequim, WA and More RVs

Off to look at more RVs today--Yesterday I spoke with a guy about a RV we saw listed on CraigsList. It was located at a dealership in Olympia, was in "good condition, runs great, you will like it." There wasn't a RV on that lot that wasn't ready for the RV graveyard--YUK!!! Since we didn't like that one, we decided to journey to Sequim, WA out on the Hood Canal to look at another motorhome. Because we were all ready south of Seattle in Olympia, we took Hwy 101 up the west side of Hood Canal. What a beautiful drive--right along the water, snow covered mountains everywhere and sunshine--we could not have asked for a more beautiful day. Now, the RV, another bust!!

I participated in my first monthly telephone sales meeting for APQS while we were driving along--I really can't wait to get involved with this company and to get out there and sell some of those longarm quilting machines.

We decided to take the Kingston Ferry back across the canal, a much shorter route for us to get back to Bothell and the RV park. Our friend Denny who purchased our 5th wheel was flying in from MT today and we expected him about 5pm.

They are loading us on the Walla Walla Ferry.

Look at MT Rainier--it looks almost ghostly rising up above the Seattle skyline--if you look closely, you can see the Space Needle.

While on the ferry, a man standing next to me pointed up at the sky and said, "what's that?" Michael and I turned and looked up and could see nothing but seagulls. He pointed again and repeated himself, "what's that?" I looked up again and said, "what, the sun??" I was right, he was making a point that as a native Washingtonian, he had not seen much sun this winter!!
Denny arrived and we met him at the "Freed Farm". Denny has owned this 10 acre parcel of land right in the middle of suburbia Bothell for almost 40 years. It is such an oasis. We discussed the pros and cons of several routes for bringing this 34 foot 5th wheel into the farm--think I will hide somewhere and close my eyes! I'll post photos tomorrow of the driveway and the process. All this planning made us hungry and Denny treated us to dinner at a fabulous Thai restaurant in downtown Bothell--one of the best meals we have had in a long time!
We got back to the RV late, I am blogging and Michael is walking the dog. We have a busy day tomorrow.
