We've been everywhere, man!

Well, not everywhere, but we are covering some ground. Our goal this summer has been to see as many friends, family, and sites as possible and Ol' Red (our old Mazda pickup) is getting us there in style - hah!

Doug's brother and sister-in-law (David and Lynette) met us in Sunriver, Oregon. We enjoyed visiting with them. Highlights - touring Petersen's Rock Garden (off the beaten path) and visiting Doug's uncle and aunt (Bob and Joan) in Prineville.

We hung out in Pasco, Washington, with my brother and sister-in-law (Phil and Danette) for a while visiting friends and getting some chores done.

Next stop - Ocean Shores, Washington. I am not sure how we got roped into this one, but we helped pack and can Albacore tuna. The canning not so much fun, but we did enjoy hanging out with friends and family and donating our money to the local casino!

From there, we drove up to Port Angeles, Washington, where we hopped a ferry to Vancouver Island, British Columbia - check out the next post for details!

We couldn't be that close to Sequim, without seeing our sailing buddies Dot and Brian from sv-Rainshadow. We had a great time meeting their extending family and touring the area. Can't wait to see them back in Mexico in the fall!

This is sure beautiful country, but the sun doesn't shine very much and it is a lot cooler than we are used to. We still had a wonderful time - check out our route!

Sounds like you guys packed alot in! I must admit, it is very nice to come to the blog and not see "Weeds"!
See you soon.

Looks like you guys are having a blast this summer. Hopefully you squeeze us in for spring training again.
We were just watching "Jimena" on the news and thinking about poor Moondance.
