Home Sweet Home

A few pictures from our recent RV trip to Washington State …

Overall, we had a very nice RV trip, although it was either raining or threatening rain much of the time. 🙁 When I planned the trip, the forecasts had indicated some rain, but mostly sunny. Oh well, the weather guys can’t always get it right.

Our first stop was south of Portland so my other-half could visit with his daughter, who lives in Oregon City. We stayed there for three days, then on to a very nice RV park in White Salmon, WA for four days. We really enjoyed this park EXCEPT for the set of train tracks located just down the hill. Unfortunately, they were used mostly at night!

We did check out the town (and a winery) while at White Salmon and the surrounding area as well, but spent much of our time across the Columbia in Hood River, mostly sightseeing with a bit of shopping. And course — wine-tasting. (Just an FYI for anyone considering a visit to this area … bring plenty of small bills. Bridge tolls are collected on both sides of the river … $2 each way.)

As we headed back home, we stopped for an overnight stay at the Elks Lodge in Salem, then on to the Eugene/Springfield area where we stayed at a very beautiful RV park for two nights. It was while we were in this area that we visited the super elegant King Estate winery with its fine dining restaurant (and primo wines!).

As you’ve probably already figured out, we do enjoy wine 😍🍷🍷🍷 and many of our travels involve visiting the local wineries. Perhaps surprisingly, one of things we also enjoy on these visits is meeting other wine-lovers and sharing tasting notes.

Anyway, we’re settling back into our usual routine but looking forward to next Spring so we can start our travels once again.
