Such a nice day. Tried to stay in and relax and accomplish some projects, but next thing I knew Ellen and I were in the car, running around town and having so much fun. She told me her husband’s nickname for her was “Fun” and it definitely fits. Tonight I tried to take a shower but the water is coming out by the faucets. I’ll fix it later. Think I am going to order a new “weighted blanket”. Been up all night. Too many fun projects. Still not enough hours in the day. Lol. Playing is very time-consuming. So is goofing off. I need a massage. Tee hee. Yes, really. All fun and no massage? I am ready for a massage.
Finally made it to Sequim, Washington about 6:00pm last night. Took two days to get here. Just kept stopping and enjoying myself. Took time to learn more about my van. This is a pretty versatile little can. Hence the name Roadtrek 170 Versatile. I’m beginning to realize that more each day. The drive to Sequim is beautiful. All of Washington state is beautiful. So glad I finally have the chance to see it.
Good appointment with Dr. Mehta at Kaiser. Scheduled colonoscopy for September 23rd. Spent the entire morning going through my mail and making phone calls to companies. It never ends. Was so frustrated I just went shopping and to the movies. Saw Tammy with Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon and another movie with Kate Hudson. Finally got over the border to Washington about 9:00pm and pulled into a rest area and got a little rest. It is 1:00am now. Haven’t decided yet if I’m ready to drive on or continue resting.
This morning I have my appointment with Kaiser in the Enterology Department.
Sunday I took eight hours to drive back to Canby and saw three movies. Lucy, animated film Planes, and a movie with Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton.
Monday LindaRae and I had lunch at Nuevo Vallarta. Hot day today. We went to Costco, Fry’s, and to Oregon a City to the movies and saw a comedy with Cameron Diaz and Jason Siegel. Tonight when Craig got home we all had dinner at the Wrangler. Full Day.
Talked to Verizon Wireless this morning and got my Hotspot set up for my iPad. Hopefully, it will make blogging easier. Today Donna, Ellen, the two small dogs, Lucy and Boo, and I are taking Ellen’s car on the Ferry to Whidbey Island. Think it is about a twenty minute ride.
Hot spot not really working. Great day at the Island. Got back about 7:00pm and watched The Main Event DVD With Barbra Streisand in my computer. Nice and relaxing.
Internet connection very slow here. Now I am in Ellen’s RV. A little better. We spent all day with Donna, driving with a map, looking at all the famous homes. There are only three Victorian seaports and this is the only one on the west coast. We bought live shrimp and crabs at the seaport and are cooking them for dinner. We had the most fun day yesterday, but I have already forgotten what we did. Really need an internet connection so I can write my blog. You must come and experience this town. I could write nonstop for days. You must experience it. You must cover every inch. It never stops with all the fascinating facets. Art, culture, boats, boats, boats, Victorian, environmental, that’s just the beginning.
Had such a great evening and dinner with Diane, Margaret, Ellen and I. Lots of laughs, great food. I can’t believe how much fun I am having.
Travel Day to Port Townsend, Washington. I am going to follow Ellen again. Hopefully, we will be leaving about 8:00am. I unhooked my water and electricity last night while the sun was shining. Might be raining again this morning by the time we are leaving. First Day, Circle is always at 4:00pm.
As Co-Coordinators, we are planning ice cream sundaes for tonight. Should be fun.
Last full day in beautiful Gig Harbor. 7:00am pancakes and bacon. 8:00am Hugs and Mugs. Ellen and I took the dogs to the groomers this morning. Had lunch at Kelly’s Cafe and Espresso. Sure enjoying their Carmel Machiatta’s. Picked the dogs up. Accidentally ended up on the $5.50 bridge to Tacoma AGAIN! So stopped in Bank of America and got $5.00 of dimes. Came back. Toured all over Gig Harbor. Love this town. Circle at 4:00pm. Everyone else went clamming today. It rained all day. Had big feast – clams, oysters, lots of fish, plus pot luck. Sun finally came out. Played Pegs and Jokers. Pretty much broke camp. About half already left. Walked dogs. Just too happy and loving it all.
7:00am pancakes and bacon. 8:00am Hugs and Mugs. Ellen and I had a full, fun day. Drove everywhere in Tacoma. Including Camping World. Her Onstar is acting up and we got lost everywhere. Laughed and got lost all day long. Found ourselves at The Home of Almond Rocha, where it is made for the whole world. We screeched to a u-turn and went crazy! Found the greatest laundromat and did our laundry. Had dinner at a fabulous Noodle House. Got back to our Gig Harbor location and the sun was shining so bright, we jumped back into the car and went to Fire Island. Drove everywhere. Yes, lush, green, gorgeous. Found the fishing pier and walked the tiny puppies, Lucy and Boo. Could not ask for a better day than this.
