I’m Camped Only One Mile From A Famous Place…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort in Seaview, Washington. My scheduled departure date is June 17th.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc.. She is now scheduled to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

I’m currently camped about one mile north from where Captain William Clark (of Lewis and Clark) stepped upon the sand beach of Beards Hollow on the shore of the Pacific Ocean on November 19, 1805. It marks the most westerly point achieved by the Lewis and Clark expedition.

A 1/4 mile walk west of the campground…brings you to the Pacific Ocean…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…


About one mile south is Beards Hollow…


Here’s a Lewis and Clark route map showing my proximity to that famous site. Looking closely you will see Captain Clark and his men walked north (left) on the beach by my campground. They went about nine miles further north before returning to Ilwaco. They then crossed the Columbia River to winter at Fort Clatsop in Oregon which I wrote about recently.

Here’s a Google Earth view looking north up the Washington Coast to Canada.  TT marks my Thousand Trails current location…

A couple of days ago I visited Beards Hollow. I’ll show you the photos tomorrow.

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day at 60 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 60 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location in the State of Washington. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
