Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center Near Ilwaco, Washington

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort in Seaview, Washington. My scheduled departure date is July 6th.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues along…slowly. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

While here last year, I visited the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment near Ilwaco Washington. It’s part of the Cape Disappointment State Park which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Disappointment_State_Park

And straight ahead the Pacific Ocean and the jetty. To the very far right you can see a small portion of Waikiki Beach which will be more closely examined soon…

The interpretive center does a very complete job of detailing the Lewis & Clark expedition….but dark and very difficult to photograph. A 16 minute film provides a good overview of their journey. In addition there is a small maritime museum.

Here’s a sea chart of the mouth of the Columbia river…

I love photographing forms and patterns. This is looking up into the top of the Fresnel Lens…

I’ve been here in the Ilwaco area several times before and always enjoy this beautiful area.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 67 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 67 degrees.

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

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