with Jim and Gayle
August was a busy travel month.
We visited my Mom. She (and her two four legged buddies)
continue to enjoy life at the retirement center.
What a really nice place!
We had thought to spend time in Mount Vernon but the RV parks were
full so we spent a week in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island,
Washington. We went to an art fair in Anacortes, had wonderful
calamarie strips, saw Deception Pass, and visited the PBY Air Museum.
Our friends, Carol and Duane, are building a house in southern
Whidbey Island, We stayed with them and toured the southern part
of Whidbey Island.
We made a quick stop at our lot in Desert Aire to clear the lot of
the Russian thistle.
We spent time with friends Scott and Joan in Richland, followed by a
week in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
In Coeur d'Alene, we met up with
friends Gordon and Karen, Pete and Ellen, and Don. We were all
staying at the Elks and were able to get together several evenings.
While in Coeur d'Alene, we also saw Mike and Libby. They
summer in CdA but winter down in the desert near us. Libby took
us to the wooden boat show in CdA.
Jim and I enjoyed going to local fairs on Whidbey Island and in
Coeur d'Alene. We haven't been to a fair in years and enjoyed
them. It was good to see kids doing something besides texting of
their smart phones!
Lumberjack competition and goat "Olympics" at the Whidbey Island fair.
Mules and music at the Coeur d'Alene fair.
And, of course, no rest for Jim! He worked on both
the coach and the truck and helped Duane assemble his bbq grill (with
Jim decided he wanted to know what Joan, Linda, and I were talking
about when we said "cast on", "knit", "purl", etc. so he is teaching
himself (with the help of YouTube videos) how to knit.
