Jun 24, 2018 - Heading North!

We left Whaler’s Rest on June 5th and headed north to Nehalem Bay and a park called Paradise Cove. Cracks me up how mediocre parks like to call themselves Paradise, Resorts and other grandiose names. This park is anything but Paradise. It is a gravel parking lot with hookups and run-down buildings but it has a view to knock your socks off! Park is built onto a hillside with the top level being the parking lot that we were parked on. Below is another parking lot and is on the same level as the docks. Lots of crabbing and fishing go on down...

Jul 28, 2017 - Olympic National Forest

We drove up I-57 to Olympia and got on 101 towards the Olympic peninsula and national Forest. The scenery was beautiful with huge trees and rivers. We decided to try to camp at Big Creek which was 9 miles out of Hoodsport into the forest. You could see Lake Cushman from the road and it looked great. Got one of the last campsites so we're set!

After our two weeks in Randle, we moved back to our home park, Travel Inn in Elma, for two weeks. While we were there, Jon had his initial visit with a physician’s assistant at Providence Neurosurgery. His case was reviewed and additional X-rays and an MRI were ordered – more waiting for those referrals. Meanwhile, we attended a concert performed beautifully by Masterworks Choral Ensemble, the choral group we sang with for over twenty-five years when we lived in Olympia. We continued to sing with our church choir, getting some “vocal...

Sep 1, 2014 - Lake Cushman Resort

August 26-18, 2014 It’s about an hour from our house to Lake Cushman on a scenic drive north of Olympia on Highway 101. In Hoodsport, a small town on Hwy. 101 and alongside Hood Canal, we drove up the hill several miles to the Lake Cushman Resort. The resort has quite a few campsites on the lake shore. About a dozen of those sites have electric and water hook-ups. Our friends John and Terri, who are from Southern California, followed us into the campground with their travel trailer. There we camped next to Panorama friends Bud and Judy,...

We drove around the little town of Hoodsport today. This area is known for oysters and shell fish. We watched the boats in Hood Channel harvesting oysters. Not much to do around town but there is the Lucky Dog Casino not far from here. We stopped for lunch at the casino and donated a few dollars to the slots!

Aug 5, 2012 - Down on the west side of the Hood Canal

Spent 3 days at the Dow Creek RV Resort near Hoodsport. Drove over to Gig Harbor one day. There sure are a lot of beautiful small harbor towns around the Sound! Spent one day skydiving at Skydive Kapowsin. It is actually in Shelton about 15 miles south of Hoodsport.

Jul 7, 2011 - Dow Creek Resort, Hoodsport, Washington

This morning we awoke to a gray day with a heavy mist. I don't think you could call it rain, it was humidity that just couldn't quite make rain drops. With this kind of dreary day, I decided to cancel my 10AM bike ride with Ed and prepared to launch early. We had everything stowed for travel and bid our farewells to Ed & Pat and were departing Evergreen Coho by 9:30AM. We will miss them but we'll reconnect on the southern Oregon Coast while we're all volunteering in September. They will be at Bullard's Beach while we're at Cape Blanco,...

Dream On

Jan 4, 2011 - Exploring Washington

We had another great day in Washington exploring several towns. We had planned to visit Mt. Walker, but they had too much snow and ice in the area. The sides of the roads were filled with icicles, it looked like a winter wonderland. We walked a very nice trail at Dosewallips State Park on the saltwater side and then drove though the other side. Dosewallips State Park is a 425-acre, year-round camping park with 5,500 feet of saltwater shoreline on Hood Canal and 5,400 feet of freshwater shoreline on either side of the Dosewallips River. All...

May 8, 2010 - Exploring the Hood Canal

Today we headed east from Sequim to explore the eastern shore of the Olympic Pennisula. Our first stop was Mount Walker. This is the only peak facing Puget Sound that has a road to its summit. There was two viewpoints. At the south viewpoint we got great views of the Hood Canal a vast arm of Puget Sound. The trough was created as the Vashon Glacier gouged its way southward during the glacial period 10,000 years ago. We were also able to see in the distance Seattle and the snow glad mountains of the Cascade including Mount Rainer. At the...

Oct 19, 2009 - A visit with Juanita's sister

. We had an excellent day for a short drive to our next location in Hoodsport, WA. The temperature was in the low to mid 50’s, skies were mostly cloudy, roads remained dry and there was no wind whatsoever. Because of the short 67-mile drive today, we were very relaxed before our departure and didn’t even get on the road until 10 AM. Fall colors have reached their peak all along the highway and we shouted out all sorts of superlatives at every turn in the road. We had ample opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery around us due to the...

Jul 19, 2008 - Hoodsport WA

Now we are on the west side of Olympic National Park, driving along our old "friend", Highway 101. It is a beautiful drive, with the forests and mountains of the park on the right, and the Hood Canal on the left. Unfortunately there is not much room for the roadway in between, especially wide vehicles such as a motorhome! Although narrow, the road surface is new and in great shape...just a challenge at times with narrow bridges and rock outcroppings waiting to scrape you if you are not careful! Hoodsport is in the heart of the Olympic...
