After getting the tow dolly repaired, we moved about an hour and half north to Chehallis, Washington, where we spent last night.
Up early again this morning, and then on the road through Seattle's heavy traffic, and on up to our Thousand Trails Park here in La Conner, Washington, on Skagit Bay.
We settled into a spot (one of the few in this park with "full hook-ups" that include a sewer hook up). Nice spot, pretty trees all around, but after two hours of doing the "dish dance", Greg gave up on us ever finding a Dish Network signal, and we packed it back up and moved to another sight - this one doesn't have a sewer hook-up, but we CAN get a Dish Network signal here, so none of the weekend's races will be missed! For those who think that this sounds like a pretty dicey trade-off, let me remind you that we are fully contained, and we can "dry camp", without any hookups at all for up to five days, as long we conserve our water usage by taking "marine showers" and using paper plates to avoid having a lot of dish washing. Our black water (bathroom waste) tank holds 40 gallons, and our grey water tank (dishwater, shower water, etc.) holds 60 gallons. Since we'll only be here 'til Tuesday morning, it's not really a big deal - I just can't run our little washer/dryer unit.
This evening, Greg took me to a nice little restaurant in the historic and quaint fishing town of LaConner for my birthday dinner. The crab cakes I had were probably the best I've ever tasted - almost no filler, all crab. Since many of the parks and coves and areas around here are named "Dungeness", I had my mouth watering for crab, and this certainly did satisfy the craving. The dessert they brought me when Greg told them it was my birthday was awesome! They called it their triple play creme brulee - three little crocks - one with classic creme brulee, one with marionberry swirl creme brulee, and one with a dark chocolate creme brulee that tasted like a silky brownie batter...Mmmm!
We walked around the town afterwards - it's really neat, with all the little original business buildings updated, but maintained in much of their original format, and almost every building down the Swinomish Channel waterfront main street proudly shows off a "National Historic Register" plaque.
So - quite a day! 3 campsites, 2 moves, and 1 birthday dinner! And we're in Washington, where the weather is often wet!
